Battlefield Hardline Officially Announced

Battlefield Hardline

Following a pesky leak earlier today, EA has officially announced the next game in the Battlefield series.

It’s called Battlefield Hardline, and will take the action away from foreign wars and instead focus on the war on crime and the battle between cops and criminals at home. The developers hope this will take the franchise in a new direction, with plenty of twists and turns for both the single player and multiplayer.

Development is being handled by Visceral Games, the same studio behind the Dead Space series and one of the three upcoming Star Wars games from EA. This will be their first time working on a Battlefield game, and they’re getting backup support from series creator DICE.

Battlefield Hardline will deploy this fall. More details on the game will be announced at E3 on June 9.
