Battlefield 4 confirmed for next-gen release

Monday, 25th February 2013 08:09 GMT By Dave Cook

Battlefield 4 has been billed as one of EA’s big next-gen launches, according to EA Labels President Frank Gibeau.

Last week, EA announced lay-offs at its Los Angeles and Montreal sites, prompting a statement from Gibeau on the matter.

In a blog post entitled “Transition is our Friend”, Gibeau had this to say about Battlefield 4:

“For EA’s creative teams, this transition comes as no surprise. We’ve been investing and innovating on new technology for months. Console partners who have seen our early work agree, EA’s next-gen software is nothing short of astonishing.

“At a GameStop company meeting earlier this week, we gave 500 store managers a sneak peak at Battlefield 4. The game received a huge ovation and thousands of fans reacted to a single enthusiastic Tweet by GameStop’s CEO.”

Gibeau’s statement confirms that Battlefield 4 is heading to next-gen, a move that should come as little surprise, given EA’s clear statement that a new Battlefield game would launch in 2014.

Thanks MP1st.

    Yeah. No doubt there will be another cod. They won’t let the series die along as there are stupid kids with too much power over their negligent parents.

    Good, means we don’t have to access the BF4 beta from the MoH Warfighter disc.

    Got rid of that ages ago.

    “Ah, but will it be 60fps on consoles?”

    Just like Batlefield 3 on the PS3/360? PS3/360 version looked also like the best version available.

    I think they will try to push 60 frames(but 720p) just because of CoD.
