EA’s set to drop the bass on Friday after confirming it will reveal an all-new Battlefield game.

The news was dropped by Easy, the lot behind Battlfield Heroes, and its GM Ben Cousins.

Cousins was keen to stress the game was not – repeat, not – Battlefield 3, however.

Flying to London later today to show a new, unannounced #Battlefield game to the press. News goes public on Friday. (NOT #BF3)

Whatever it is, it’s not going to be called Battlefield Assault anyways.

Just to confirm – I am NOT going to London to announce any game called ‘Battlefield Assault’. That is just a URL EA picked up.”

And if you think it’s going to be a console port of Heroes, wrong again. Cousins says the title is “completely new.”

So there. It’s not Battlefield 3 – its reveal will come shortly, it seems – but a new Battlefield it is.

    BFHeroes 2? If so we don’t need it BFHeroes is fine.
    And please god make it not be BFBC3 because that would be way too soon.

    Put it this way. There are UK journos on the way to the O2 right now.

    I highly and sincerely doubt there gonna have a massive bunch of top-tier UK journos for the reveal of a Battlefield game for iPhone.

    My guess? Another downloadable title like 1943. Battlefield 2143?

    2143? Yeap, probably.

    I’m interested to see where DICE will go After 2142. They always like to innovate with timeline.

    first was 2nd world war, than Modern time when it was Fresh and new, than Sci-fi… and now? :D

    Gek – Nope. He’s in the midst of moving house again in France.

    Me? I’m in Belfast and haven’t traveled since Germany.

    As for if we have someone else there for us or not, I actually don’t know.

    How about you look back at to why BF 1942 was so good and try to emulate the skill that game required.
