EA Announce Battlefield: Hardline

May 28, 2014

With E3 on the horizon, EA have joined the pre-E3 announcement club by announcing one of the games they planned to formally show off at their E3 conference – Battlefield Hardline. It’ll be the first Battlefield game to be developed outside of DICE (Visceral Games are helming this one), and will be hitting later this year on PS3/PS4/PC/Xbox 360/Xbox One.

While no footage or gameplay details were made known officially (aside from a vague “police vs criminals theme), Visceral’s Vice President and General Manager, Steve Papoutsis made the announcement formal and gave some details about how the game came to be. “Several years ago, I was at an internal EA meeting in Barcelona with creative leaders from across the company. It was there I met Karl Magnus Troedsson, the GM of DICE, for the first time, and we immediately began talking about games – I’ve always loved Battlefield and KM was a huge fan of Dead Space, which I was working on at the time. We started talking about different ways we could work together, different ways we could take Battlefield and action games in a new direction. It was then that this project that became Battlefield Hardline was born…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.”

Where this becomes interesting is much like the announcement of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, this also seems to be a response to a significant number of leaked assets. Specifically among them, the Twitter account for fansite BFDaily has managed to get a hold of a number of images pertaining to ribbons, weapons, vehicles and much more.

Despite all this, we’ll see quite more of Battlefield Hardline come E3.
