Battlefield 4 is on the way in the near future, DICE and EA have already confirmed that months ago to the surprise of the current Battlefield 3 community. Beta access has been confirmed for those that picked up Medal of Honor Warfighter and now it looks like EA will soon be ready to talk about their next Battlefield entry, which very much looks like will be on the next-generation of gaming consoles.
At the moment, focus is still very much on the remaining End Game DLC expansion for Battlefield 3, which will be available sometime in March on all platforms. After that EA will immediately switch their attention to Battlefield 4, as EA Games label chief Frank Gibeau has revealed in a recent investor’s call that Battlefield 4 is definitely confirmed for a 2014 release date.
Furthermore, he’s also revealed that further Battlefield 4 information will be announced within 90 days, which means that we’ll hear more on the development of the game around the April or May period. It’s no secret that the Sony PS4 and Xbox 720 consoles are supposedly due out at the end of the year, so it’s safe to say that we’ll all be enjoying Battlefield 4 on a brand new console (or PC) when it arrives next year.
One of the essential features arriving is thought to be solid 60FPS gameplay on the next-gen consoles, although this may not be possible if Battlefield 4 still supports the PS3 and Xbox 720. However, there’s still the debate ongoing as to whether next-gen consoles will even support old discs or used-games, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens there.
What are your thoughts on the imminent arrival of Battlefield 4 in 2014? Do you think it is too soon after Battlefield 3, or is is it great to see a new Battlefield game arriving on next-gen consoles as soon as possible?
