New Battlefield game confirmed

EA has confirmed that the next instalment into the Battlefield series will be released in 2014.

EA Labels president Frank Gibeau said “”will be launching a Battlefield game next year,” and the publisher is “very excited to show you guys more detail on that coming soon.”

Speaking at EA’s third-quarter financial call, Gibeau didn’t add much else, but did say that EA is “not announcing an annualization of Battlefield at this time.”

Now there are no details on whether this will be Battlefield 4, Bad Company 3, or something completely different; however, it is reasonable to assume its BF4.

The news of Battlefield 4 originally appeared through a pre-order incentive for Medal of Honor: Warfighter, which is said to give adopters an early beta access to the next BF game.

DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson also confirmed that Battlefield 4 will once again be set in “present times”.

“We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is. We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful,” Troedsson added.

    It might bode better the game if it comes out in 2014

  • Johan du Preez

    Its probably battlefield 2142 or something there was hints about this in easter eggs in battlefield 3

  • UnskinnyBob

    Milking it.

    Atleast it’s not a yearly thing like CoD. BF3 was released in 2011 and premium in 2012 which is just addons. So with BF4 in 2014 I dont think it really counts as milking it.

  • I’d like a futuristic combat Battlefield 🙁

  • Vorastra

    A BF2142 successor would be AMAZING !

  • Marius du Plessis

    yeah, that would be awesome

  • Did you even bother to actually read the article you’re commenting on? The GM at DICE clearly says the next Battlefield will be set in “present times.”
