Electronic Arts registers domains for Battlefield 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20

Call it defensive or call it long-term planning, but Electronic Arts has gone out and registered dot-com domains for Battlefield 13 all the way through Battlefield 20. On May 2, EA registered each of the names through the brand protection agency Corporation Service Company (CSC), adding to its ever-growing collection of Battlefield-related web addresses which includes its crown-jewel Battlefield.com, a name that EA spent $80,000 USD to acquire.

Seems to work fine when I google'd it and got to the site that way.

With the runtime error page, the URL for the article is in the address bar. Just remove the N4G 'click-to' text and direct yourself to the article. I'd post the link, but it refused saying "Your comment looks like spam."

You're not missing anything either way. It's a terrible 'article.'

Ah well thank you I got it in the end. I was hoping to see a bit more but I see it's more like a notification of sorts.

Battlefield 20 won't even be here until maybe 2055 or something.

They are on BF4............16 BF games from now....crap...might not even be this century to be honest.

Would anyone even buy any game that has 19 direct sequels ?

Talk about uncreative.

Not really a big deal. No one likes domain squatters, and that's all this is intended to prevent.

If this was COD, people would be singing a completely different tune. In fact, Activision did this too a couple years ago and the response from this community is not surprising.

People on this site are generally pretty uninformed of common practices in the game industry.

IDK why, but I laughed when I read the title.
