EA plans BF 4 reveal in about 90 days

Written by David Stellmack



Likely to talk about next generation version


Electronic Arts has revealed that in about 90 days they plan to reveal Battlefield 4. The exciting thing about this news is the very likely reveal of the title on next generation platforms, meaning the Xbox Next and the PlayStation 4.

The publisher has teased a little about the next offering in the Battlefield franchise, but the news seem to reinforce the rumors that both Microsoft and Sony will have taken the wraps off their next generation consoles by late April timeframe.

So far, beyond the admission from developer DICE that the Frostbite engine was built to scale to the next generation platforms when released, little is known about Battlefield 4 other than the publisher is planning to release it between April 2013 and March 2014.

Sources tell us that they expect EA to release both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Battlefield 4, as well as a PC and maybe even a Mac version of the title. The possibility of a Mac release seems much more possible, as it has been revealed that DICE is porting the Frostbite engine over to the Mac OS X platform. Frostbite will continue to be the engine of choice for EA titles going forward, as a number upcoming titles will be using the engine.
