It means that BF4 is being made.

It means that EA is trying to keep up with Activisons annual COD release.

Seriously am I the only one who thinks this game was announced too early?

"It means that EA is trying to keep up with Activisions Annual COD release."

Which EA said they weren't gonna do annually, because of that engine, and BattleFields complex gameplay nature.

EA stole the thunder of any of Medal Of Honors potential hype with a BF4 announcement, brung back the hype for MOH with a early access beta for BF4. When the REAL hype is behind BF4.

So they're promoting BF4 ALREADY through MOH. And basically making MOH look like a promo for a bigger game.

"Pre-Order MOH for BF4 beta first." Just an example. Honestly MOH is is already irrelevant thanks to an extremely early BF4 announcement.

So what it means is EA went back on there word with the BF series.

Your rite their bud,i know its a business but i think they will eventually run it into the ground.I thought it would'nt of been released til next gen tbh and with the sales success of bf3 EA are capitalizing on that.I love battlefield but dice have definately signed their life away to EA.

Its not really announced early. Games get announced 2-3 years out all the time. You just have to dig to find out most of the time.

What this does mean though is that EA has a rotation to go through. At least its not Battlefield/Battlefield all the time. Although Bad Company, 2142, or 1942 revisit is more than welcomed by fans. How will EA throw them into the mix. If their talk is of Sci-Fi as the future why is Battlefield 4 not called 2143? I am wondering.

I don't know why every one is saying that BF is going to be released annually.

There was no release date announced and the Beta was to be playable Fall 2013. Which I think will change as the time grows near.

That doesn't mean that it will release soon after as well.

And what's up with all this COD commotion? Are you guys intimidated by Activision or something. Everytime I come to a Battlefield article, Call of Duty is brought up. Two completely different games.

I guess it's just the movement and bandwagon conversation at the moment.

It means im Buying it. The only way BF can compete with COD is by releasing BF games each year thats the only way.

Yeah and destroy quality oft he BF series to. EA is slowly trying to get greedy with that annual holiday market like Activision.

I saw this coming, a "gem" like BF will end up being a a degraded half of a game like cod. That holiday season is just too tempting for any publishers, now EA is officially victim of it. They're sacrafice "Quality" over sales. Join the club EA

I don't want BF to be competing with cod. It's ruining the BF series and it's ruining the games industry.

LordMe1523d ago

Another shooter to saturate the market and slowly kill off innovation in gaming?

I think it means that there is another battlefield on the way. That is all.

It means Battlefield 4 is coming.
