I know what you’re thinking… “EA hasn’t even announced Battlefield 4 yet, how can they be talking about a beta?” And it’s true, the game hasn’t been officially announced. But yet, the advertisement shown above appeared on their Origin download service late last night before disappearing earlier this morning.
While the publisher still plans to support Battlefield 3 with additional DLC packs throughout the rest of 2012 and into 2013, the idea of a sequel isn’t that far-fetched. Battlefield 3 sold tremendously well after it’s release last Fall and was still present in the NPD’s top ten for June 2012. EA and developer DICE would be crazy not to make a sequel.
While no other details about Battlefield 4 were leaked (including the important detail of when a beta would place and for what platforms other than the PC), we know that DICE is hard at work on a next-gen game. Could it be Battlefield 4? Maybe.
