Hardline is next Battlefield title

Written by David Stellmack

SWAT style shooter by Visceral

Rumors of a new entry in the Battlefield franchise developed by Visceral Games has panned out to be true. A new SWAT police style shooter has been in development by the studio best known for the Dead Space franchise.

Battlefield: Hardline was spotted by fans inside the code of the latest Battlelog update. The game is expected to be released later this year for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. It is powered by the Frostbite 2 engine we suspect.

The game has been in development at Visceral under the codename of “Ohama” and it will be shown at E3 in June. The game will have four factions which are SWAT, Thieves, LW, and CR and offer four classes said to be enforcer, Mechanic, Operator, and Professional. The game is expected to offer at least four modes of game play said to be Heist, Blood Money, TDM, and Turf War.

Beyond this, little else is known about Hardline, but we think this is likely the unnamed title that EA was talking about earlier this year that was on track for release yet this year with a fall release likely. Hard to say what Battlefield fans will make of Hardline and we will have to wait till E3 to get a real look at how well this works and if it is the kind of think Battlefield fans who are used to military shooters, will have interest in playing.
