Something tell me this will got push back towards October/November time frame.

ddurand12152d ago

which falls right in between the dates in the title.

zeeshan2152d ago

Isn't it too close to the last BF3 DLC? This is not cool! They should have worked on BFBC3. I don't see a need of a new Battlefield game so soon. What do you guys say?

RonXD2152d ago

Which just so happens to be right around the time the next CoD will be released. Obvious what EA is doing.

DeadlyFire2152d ago

Sounds more like where Bad Company 3 should have been released to me. Its nowhere near the Fall release of Call of Duty. I don't get EA's plan. Saying your not releasing a game every year, but releasing it every 1 year + 1 month away is not that different.

Rainstorm812152d ago

Really 1 year and 1 month? They gave a very broad release range Apr 2013 - Mar 2014 is a long time and we all know it will end up releasing in the fall as usual.

Anyone that thinks the game will release in April of next year 6 months after Medal of Honor, is delusional

Rainstorm812152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

Really A year and 1 month? They said Apr 2013- Mar 2014 which is a really broad timeframe. 9 times out of 10 it will release in Fall 2013 as usual barring any development issues that would push it to 2014.

Anyone that thinks BF4 will release in April, 6 months after Medal of Honor Warfighter, is delusional

Disccordia2152d ago

Its because that period is their financial year so they are saying it'll be during that time. We all know it'll be October or November.

Ares84HU2152d ago

I don't understand people. If it comes out in 2013 it's 2 years apart from BF3...if it comes in 2014...that's three years apart.

What is wrong with that??? That's normal for a sequel.

SolidStoner2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

I buy'ed BF3 premium, and now it seems that I shouldn't, because BF4 is on the way and there will be no need for BF3 in the end!

I realy hope that Dice dosnt start to push out new game every year like COD series works..

EDIT. PS. they SHOULD at least release DLC faster then..

That's weird.

The beta is scheduled for fall 2013, yet we should expect the game as soon as April 2013??


megacowdung2152d ago

I was thinking the exact same thing. It's probably a typo.

chad22hkd2152d ago

With EA already admitting their new engine was built around getting ready for ps4 and xbox720.
This sounds like its going to be a next gen title!

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

Where the hell is respawn?

solid_si2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

Hahahah a new BF game every year...

Medal of Honour
Medal of HonouR

All are basicaly BF game with same engine, same graphics just different settings, weapons and features. No different than COD's.

DICE is a bitch of EA, just as infinityward is a bitch of Activi$ion

DasTier2152d ago

Medal of Honour to Battlefield is basically Goldeneye Reloaded to Call of Duty, HaVing the same engine doesn't make it the same game. E.g. Call of duties use a modified Quake III engine.

StayStatic2152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

At least Dice deliver solid PC ports that's all I care about , I resent playing with controller and I will not be forced into buying the console version just because Bobby Kotick made IW ruin MW2 by stripping it of all it's glory:

- Balanced Game Play
- Dedicate servers
- Field of view modifiable without legal hacks
- In Game Console Commands "/cg_fov"
- Cheaters could be banned with server control
- Punkbuster

Can't beleive Activsion had the audacity to take down AlterIWNet which fixed all the problems which Activsion caused.

Then Bob Kotick made all the talent leave to post launch and now we have MW3 which is even worse.

Just re-installed CoD 4 on the PC and it's awesome , alas Activsion are ass holes.

People will say EA is the worse and I respect there opinion because they have there bad moments , but from a PC gamers perspective that has played FPS for years, I have been burnt so many more times by Activsion on the PC.

Ares84HU2152d ago

Medal of Honor is nothing like BF.

showtimefolks2151d ago

Battlefield 4 will launch 20-30 or so days before next COD with a huge advertisement budget

DaThreats2152d ago

No, more like October 2014
Next year belongs to Bad Company 3

BattleTorn2152d ago

You been living under a rock?

EA has already confirm that BF4 is to release proir to BFBC3.

WeskerChildReborned2152d ago

Not really a bad date, so i'm guessing the beta will be at the end of 2013 or the beginning of 2014.

grahf2152d ago

Beta will be 1 month before the launch of the game, just like the BF3 beta.

310dodo2152d ago

Make BF4 June 2015

BC 3 November 2013

ChunkyLover532152d ago

November 2013 confirmed then. I wonder if the next gen versions will release at the same time as current gen versions? It'd be a pretty sweet Xbox 720 launch title.

demetreHG2152d ago

There isn't any next Gen titles to release t'ill end 2014 early 2015( if that ) so please talk about current Gen

ChunkyLover532152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

What in the world are you talking about? Microsoft has dev kits out right now, they have had them out for almost two years. Microsoft had everyone remove their 50+ page document that specified a 2013 Xbox 720 launch. 80% of their studios are working on next gen titles.

Of course next gen is coming next year, Nintendo's next gen console comes THIS YEAR.

Rainstorm812152d ago (Edited 2152d ago )

Until a next gen console from MS and Sony is announced its all speculation, we barely have a release date for the Wii-U.

I doubt Sony and MS is planning to announce and release their next gen consoles in the same year, it only happened once with the Sega Saturn and we know how successful that console was

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF2151d ago (Edited 2151d ago )

My MS insider at my site is saying 2013 boys. Be ready. Oh, and remember this little tidbit, and remember where you heard this... but Perfect Dark will be a Durango launch title, and the new controller will have rumble on the analog sticks, and rumble on the trigger buttons, as well as a screen on the controller in the middle, that you can't tell is there when it's turned off.
