EA has quashed speculation it will emulate Activision by bringing in a premium version of its Battlefield 3 service, Battlelog.

“We are providing Battlelog to Battlefield 3 players to deliver the best social, multiplayer FPS experience in the market,” the publisher told IndustryGamers.

“We have no plans to charge for this service with Battlefield 3. The Battlefield series has always been about playing with friends, and Battlelog takes that experience to the next level by serving as a unique social network.”

EA’s comments came in response to a prediction from Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter that a premium version of the service would be introduced in the future, in emulation of rival offering Call of Duty Elite.

Battlefield 3 launches next month for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
