It should come as no surprise to anyone that with the success of EA’s Battlefield 3 that a sequel would soon be announced, the question was just a matter of when. Well EA has officially announced Battlefield 4 today, being developed by Sweden based DICE studio. Beyond the announcement of the game however, nobody is saying anything. There are still 3 more DLC packs to arrive for Battlefield 3 so its clear we won’t get much Battlefield 4 news any time soon.
The report right from EA DICE directly goes on to say:
“There is no further Battlefield 4 news at this point,” reads a post from DICE on the Battlefield 4 subpage. “With the Back to Karkand and Close Quarters expansion packs already out, Armored Kill around the corner, and End Game and Aftermath still on the horizon, we’re looking forward to many more hours of gameplay with you, and can’t wait to see the stories you will tell through Battlelog and player created videos.”
After the MOH series, EA set out to match its competition’s annual shooter, Call of Duty with Battlefield 3 and was met with much success. Currently EA is focusing attention on their upcoming Medal of Honor game and EA’s Los Angeles-based Danger Close studio is in charge of the series. Both Battlefield and MOH use the Frostbite 2.0 engine developed by DICE, while Danger Close says the next MOH game will use the DICE Battlelog system as well. While sales have been in high numbers and everyone is in good spirits, EA has yet to beat Call of Duty which is the powerhouse for Activision.
