Battlefield 4 on the way, EA won’t ignore Battlefield 3
Earlier this week EA officially confirmed Battlefield 4 for 2013. It’s great news for those wanting new Battlefield action, but the good news soon turned sour over fears Battlefield 3‘s online play would not be supported. Fear not, Battlefield 3 fans. Developer DICE has confirmed that Battlefield 3 support will continue, and incoming expansions are on the way.
Ongoing Battlefield 3 support was confirmed by community manager, Ian Tournay. Addressing a Reddit community, he said DICE and publisher EA “are dedicated to continuing our support for Battlefield 3.”
Support for the game will also continue post Battlefield 4’s release, he added.
“Just as we’ve continued to support and maintain Bad Company 2, we intend to continue providing the best Battlefield 3 experience we can well into the future and past the release of End Game and Battlefield 4.
“There are several teams at DICE. Starting work on Battlefield 4 does not mean that we will be abandoning Battlefield 3 or working any less hard to bring you the best expansions we can.”
Battlefield 4 will arrive in stores in 2013, EA confirmed. Those wanting to get first dibs will need to pre-order EA’s other military shooter Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
Doing so will grant access to a Battlefield 4 beta, available in autumn 2013. More details will be revealed at a later date. Medal of Honor: Warfighter hits the shops on 26th October 2012.
That’s just one month before two more big-hitting shooters land in stores – no less than Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
Will you be purchasing Medal of Honor: Warfighter in order to get your hands on Battlefield 4 early? And which shooter do you think will come out on top this year? Predictions in the comments below!
