Rumor: Pre-Order Warfighter, Get Into Battlefield 4 Beta
It would be no great shock if EA announced Battlefield 4. In fact, it'd be a fair guess to assume it will hit for the 2013 holiday season. Prediction...?
But while we're still waiting for an official announcement, Digital Spy spotted something awfully interesting:
It seems a listing for Medal of Honor: Warfighter on Origin has outed BF4, as it says those who pre-order this year's hotly anticipated shooter will automatically gain access to a beta test for the new Battlefield. Of course, EA has since removed the information, which is kinda like saying, "Oops, we didn't mean to make that known just yet...even if it is true." Chances are, EA will make the announcement some time soon and as I just said, nobody will be surprised. It seems like the perfect lead-in, doesn't it?
EA wants to continue to chip away at Activision's lead in the FPS genre, currently dominated by Call of Duty. And EA has said they just want to "steal away market share," which they feel they did with BF3; chances are, they can do it again with a stellar Battlefield 4.
