EA will be showing “some Battlefield stuff” in about 90 days, according to their earnings call last night. This is highly likely to be Battlefield 4, and chances are it’ll be focused on next-gen consoles. Overnight EA said they were retiring the Medal Of Honor games, at least for now.
But first, there’s been a persistent rumour circling for a little while now which claimed that the next Battlefield will run on both generations of machines, but at 60fps on PS4 and Xbox 720.
The rumour also says there’ll be a return to the Commander role in multiplayer, support video recording, have three factions (USA, Russia, and China), female characters and up to 64 players, depending on format and capabilities. The same rumour also claimed Battlefield 3 would get Air Superiority as DLC, so there you go.
And now that (rather targeted) date of 90 days away. “We’ve already talked a little bit about that we have a Battlefield title coming next year, but we’re not in a position right now to talk about our development plans and our SKU plan long term,” said EA Labels president Frank Gibeau during EA’s earnings call last night, via VG.
“That will come in about 90 days when we get to show you some Battlefield stuff,” he said.
Whether or not this will coincide with either Sony or Microsoft’s announcement of next-gen machines is anyone’s guess. Chances are we’ll all know what’s happening inside of three months on both above counts, so this could be a perfect opportunity for EA to showcase what Frostbite can do with next gen technology.
