Yeah but that's a pretty damn cool mod plus it's supported right out of the gate.
The value in this game is gonna be insane and should keep the community going for many years. I don't know how they can top this in future Battlefield games.
EA has no interest in giving their games longevity unless they can somehow monetise it, hence why they got rid of mods and dedicated servers in the first place, and why they give away the games for free in the lead up to each BF sequel (i.e. they know the games are already dead and giving them away at least has marketing value).
Keeping the community going is the exact opposite of EA's business model which is all about pushing people onto the next revenue stream, so it is very premature to give EA/DICE any credit until we know how they plan to nickel and dime users.
