New Battlefield to be announced on Friday

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.
