Battlefield 4 may have been confirmed for a Fall release in 2013, but it looks like EA are already making plans for the future of Battlefield, perhaps even going a little over the top at the same time. It’s just been confirmed that the publisher has registered Battlefield domains all of the way up to Battlefield 20 – but will you still be playing the franchise then we wonder?
Battlefield 20 sounds a somewhat scary prospect. Not just because of the fact that we’ll all be a lot older than we are now, but the fact that EA already has plans ahead of schedule to bring out a Battlefield game all the way up to 20 – we are at 4 now after all.
Then again, they could just be protecting their business assets. It’s no secret that sneaky individuals try to gamble on future domain names for games, by purchasing them early for a very low price and then selling them off big to publishers when the game is eventually made.
It has happened so many times in the past and it looks like EA want to save themselves some likely hassle in a couple of decades time, whilst kicking off a fair bit of speculation as well at the same time from intrigued fans. You can see the evidence for yourself here over at Battlefield20.com – the owner is registered to Electronic Arts, with the company making their move on May 2 before anyone else gets in.
Should you perhaps try and get Battlefields 25-30 registered for yourself for some potential spending money when you come to retire? Now that the domain names have been secured, it also suggests that EA won’t be changing the names of their Battlefield games either, like what Activision has done recently by changing Modern Warfare 4 to Call of Duty Ghosts.
What do you think or hope you’ll be doing by the time Battlefield 20 comes around? List your predictions below!
