Battlefield 3 Release Date and Possible Modern Warfare 3 Firing Line

By Alan Ng - Apr 2, 2011

We have some major news for gaming fans around the world now, as it looks like the Battlefield 3 release date has been revealed, and it doesn’t look like an April Fools joke either. The most interesting part of the date, is that it falls in the midst of Modern Warfare territory.

We knew that both games are going to go head to head with each other when they release, and this seems to have just confirmed things. If you head over to CVG, you’ll see that they have included a screenshot taken from the French version of EA’s Download Manager, which reveals that Battlefield 3 will be out on November 2nd!

Obviously, this hasn’t been confirmed by EA, but it does look promising. We knew that the game would be out in November anyway, so this potential date of November 2nd is not too surprising. However, we don’t know when Modern Warfare 3 will be out yet. Black Ops released on November 9th 2010, so if MW3 releases around the same time, which it’s pretty likely this will happen – things are going to get very interesting indeed.

Just so you’re aware, November 2nd is a Wednesday, which could also suggest that this date is going to be a worldwide release, which again you could have guessed considering the sheer scale of the title. We’ll let you know if we get a confirmation on this date.

It’s November 2nd for now though – are you excited?

    i fell in love with MW2. i got bord of Black Ops pretty fast since the gaming engine is suckish and all the guns are rediculously similar. with all the law suits hitting infiniti ward nd them losing alot of employees, i can only hope that MW3 will rape (but it might not). i find that battlefield 2's realitstic expirience is AWSOME!!!! and battlefield 3 looks even more AWSOME!!!! considering its guna have a newer BETTER gaming engine plus other shit….i think its guna rape. i for one, am definitly buying battlefield 3 over MW3. if MW3 is still being talked about and praised after 3 months of its release, then i might buy it.

    I've been playing Call of Duty for about 10 years now and must say with the recet installment of Black Ops, it has made me really bored of Call of Duty altogether. I reached Prestige 15 from release then 2 days after I reached prestige 15 I stopped playing and haven't gone back, that's since January. Battlefeild 3 looks amazing and I'm really excited about it, I just hope it gets alot more support as the Battlefeild series is an awesome experience!

    This is a place-holder date. Previous Battlefields have always been delayed, even after an official date has been announced. Battlefield 2 was originally slated for March '05, but was pushed back to June 2005.
