Visceral Games & EA have just officially announced the next game in the Battlefield series, Battlefield Hardline, and its coming this fall. Shocker!
General Manager and VP, Steve Papoutsis had this to say about the game.
“On behalf of everyone at EA and Visceral Games, I’m fired up to confirm our next project – Battlefield Hardline. The game launches this fall and it’s a brand new series in the Battlefield franchise, set against the backdrop of a genre we all love – the war on crime and the battle between cops and criminals.”
It sounds like an interesting concept to me. Cops and robbers isn’t something you would normally see from a Battlefield game.
I think they have a lot to prove though following the disaster of Battlefield 4, I know its not DICE, but I really feel like some major damage has been done to the reputation of the franchise. Lets hope it can start to repair it.
Expect to see more on the game at this years E3.
“There’s been a lot of buzz today about Battlefield Hardline – we’re getting ready for E3 and fans found some details on our website about what we’re working on for the show. We’ve been reading all of your comments and we’re excited to be going into more detail soon on the ways we’re adding new twists and turns to the foundation of Battlefield multiplayer and more about how we’re bringing our strengths at Visceral to single player.
Are you feeling hyped from this announcement?
I will reserve my judgement until I see a trailer, or some gameplay. Not long to go!
