How realistic is some of the futuristic tech we’ve seen in Frontlines?
Halper: Well, a lot of it’s based on technology that already exists. We’ve seen prototype versions of the drones in the games in operation. They do actually work, but I’m not sure when they’re going to be used in real conflicts.
You said Frontlines is based on a “speculative” vision of future events, and you’ve obviously read more about it than us. Be honest: are we all going to die?
Halper: Ha. Well, it’s a pretty bleak vision of the future. The oil problem is definitely something we’d like to make people more aware of, but we’re most interested in just making a fun game.
