Battlefield 4 will arrive this autumn on PS3, 360 and PC.
A Wii U version is not in the works. And although EA won’t officially announce it, it looks like the game is shaping up to be a next-gen launch title, too.
The title was revealed at both GDC in San Francisco and in Stockholm, Sweden – the home of game developer DICE. It was revealed in dramatic fashion, too, with an epic 17-minute trailer that you can watch below.
It is good news for retail, as it is another big blockbuster to round off the year. Although once again there’s a big gap in the release schedule between now and September.
We are so humbled and proud to debut Battlefield 4 on a global stage with simultaneous events in San Francisco and Stockholm," said EA VP Patrick Soderlund.
"To be this early in development, and to already be so polished is a huge achievement for the DICE team and reflection of their passion and commitment to driving the franchise forward. Today’s demo was just the beginning – we have so much more in store. It is thrilling to witness peoples’ reaction when seeing the game for the first time. It really makes you realize that we are at the beginning of a whole new era for gaming. As artists and craftspeople, we are focused on creating a dynamic, open design that brings people together with amazing, surprising unscripted moments that they’ll talk about for days. That’s the beauty of Battlefield.”
