BATTLEFIELD HARDLINE UNVEILING
JUNE 9TH 12:00PM PDT
WATCH ONLINE AT WWW.EA.COM/E3



---

Possibly called Battlefield: Havana (purely speculative)?

Link to source

Very disappointed it's cross-gen but unsurprising.

Update 1: Some details

EDIT1: The code-name is apparently Omaha.

EDIT2: Possible game modes: TDM, Turf War (Small and Large), Heist and Blood Mooney.

EDIT3: Possible teams: SWAT, Thieves, "LW" and "CR".

EDIT4: The game is pretty much ready for E3, Heist and Blood Mooney will be playable on the map High Tension (MP_Downtown).

EDIT5: I believe Commander mode will be available too.

EDIT6: Possible "classes" (maybe they're just loadouts): Enforcer, Mastermind, Techincian and Professional. There should be vehicles too.

EDIT7: Possible in-game store where you can buy weapons and accessories (hopefully ala CounterStrike).

EDIT8: There will be the police baton ("The police baton is used in melee combat to deter wrongdoes from bad behavior.")

Visceral basically confirmed:

Also, name seems to be Battlefield: Hardline.

Battlefield Hardline, you heard it here first :)
I found a youtuber that went to San Francisco recently who has been adding battlefield hardline to his video tags. I dont really want to name names because I dont want to drop anyone in it but anyway thats how I came up with that name.
A number of them went by the way xFactor, LevelCap and JackFrags to name but a few and none of them have said why yet. You can bet they saw something they cant talk about yet my guess is this is it. I wasn't sure based on the YouTube tags until this picture now I'm certain.

They should just port the PC version of BFBC2 to the PS4 and XBOne and call it a day.

I really hope this one to be good and playable since Day one. As someone who had the Limited edition of BF3 on PS3 and later on PC, it's a shame I had to skip BF4 but as a consumer I couldn't support them.

Here's hoping for the best.

Well, visually yes. But, devs really dont like to change the gameplay.

They are fully aware that they can push the number of enemies, create complicated AI and more on nextgen, but they will scale all that down so that x360/ps3 users have the identical gameplay.

You mean like COD:AW having the last Gen done by someone else.

Visceral's game is this year's worst kept secret.

Edit: I have written off Battlefield, but a more intimate Battlefield centered around a SWAT like team with destruction at that level does sound awesome. Really I just want a sequel to Bad Company though.

If Dragon Age Inquisition is any example I don't think Frostbite will held back too much by cross gen. Battlefield 4 clearly suffered from Launch title blues. I'm not worried.

A BF game where you play as swat would be cool, I need my fix seeing as Rainbow Six is nowhere to be found.

Next will be multi gen swat then after a full on proper PC, X1, PS4 only Battlefield game.

I refuse to get hyped over the next BF game. They burned us so bad on BF4 and left a bad taste in my mouth. I preordered and bought premium, and it took them months before the game was acceptable. I will wait and see from here on out with this franchise.

I've put in over 600 hours in Battlefield 4 and I'm in the same boat as you. Game was unplayable and unbalanced the first 4 months.

It's annualized in brand only. Sounds like Visceral's take on the franchise will be quite different. Wouldn't surprise me if Battlefront next year is treated as a Battlefield like release as well.

One thing about Visceral's game is that they always have a high degree of polish. Significantly more than any other game on the EA label. So I really wouldn't worry about it releasing with the same issues that BF4 had.

Yeah, I think they just realized that if they want to compete with CoD then it has to be a yearly franchise. They can't go a year or two without a new game when CoD is in the news every year with a big new release.

That would be a good thing cause I think BF needs a break from two main line titles back to back. That was bad idea looking back on BF history they never released two main line battlefields in the same era and and with in 2 years two of each other. Really 2143 should have come out this spring. Been polished and left a better impression on everyone.

This annualization "in brand only" as you say will fragmentate the community and I don't like it, but I understand it's what they have to do to heighten their brand awareness to CoD levels.

Yeah EA said something to the effect of "and the game will have to do well, especially on next-gen" which technically implied last-gen versions exist.

Yeah I do. It is was immediately sprung to mind when I first heard about a police/SWAT themed BF.

Didn't realise it got cancelled so early on, definitely sounds like EA could have done a little bit of funding.

The sequel to Battlefield 2142 or forget it. It's silly for DICE to release any game that can potentially cannibalize their own BF3 and 4. If this end up being an DLC for BF4 then that should be part of the Premium pack and not something extra that people should pay for. If the latter end up being the case, even if it is COPS, then I really don't think that is fair and I certainly won't support it.

More than likely will be running on Frostbite, like any other EA-owned studio game nowadays. And the game is rumored to be police/swat-themed.

Oh well. I guess we got to wait and see if it cannibalizes BF3 and 4 or not, I guess. If it does then EA made a very stupid mistake.... but what else is new with that company.
