Battlefield 4 has been confirmed for release next year on the next generation hardware. However, no word on if it will release on the current generation of consoles.

The first-person shooter series, powered by the potent Frostbite 2 engine, is not yet set to be an annual franchise however, in light of the recent troubles with Medal of Honor...

The Labels President of Electronic Arts, Frank Gibeau, has announced this in a blog he wrote concerning the recent layoffs. He wrote:

"We expect more announcements on new platforms and partnerships. For EA’s creative teams, this transition comes as no surprise. We’ve been investing and innovating on new technology for months. Console partners who have seen our early work agree, EA’s next-gen software is nothing short of astonishing."

As if Battlefield 3's graphical strength wasn't astonishing enough, it seems as though Dice is setting the bar even higher this time around. For all that, they don't seem to be feeling the pressure however;

"Console transitions are a complex and challenging experience.  I’ve helped navigate several and agree with an old saying we have at EA: Transition is our friend.  All the trend lines are converging to reward the creative and financial investments we have made in mobile and console technology.  We have never been more ready or more excited about what comes next. " Gibeau wrote.

What are your expectations of the upcoming Battlefield game?

As it is pretty much impossible to say what the settings and optimization ect of this game will be.. i still am curious to know if you guys think i could run on high with some AA and get 60fps.. sounds reasonable to me... i run crysis 3 on high with x2AA AT 60fps...

Personally, i have big expectations from BF4 because it is said to be something new. But i want very much, to be a world wide map where i could chose where to fight. I mean, i want in Afghanistan, when i click that zone, to appear a list of servers which are playing maps from that zone. Personally, that's what i want very much, apart from graphics which should be very good even on the lowest settings. And to don't be like crysys 3 (destroymyrig)

You mean in the multiplayer? That would be a great addition indeed ;), and is currently present in other shooter games as of date, with some similar system.

I wish they wouldn't have abandoned Bad Company completely, since it would still be a strong series, even with a 3rd edition to it.

If I recall hearing correctly, they are working on BFBC3, just in the background, so no idea how long till we hear anything. Can't remember where I heard that, so no idea how credible the source it.

They should cut out PREMIUM accounts being able to buy all the equipment for all classes. It gives an unfair advantage to those players who's mommy and daddy spent an extra 30-50 bucks on the game. Maybe renew the reviving part. When you get revived you get a prompt on the screen first before you actually get revived. I get killed 2 times in a row before I know what is happening. And the sluggish movement at times can be optimized.

You should probably get your facts straight man, premium users cant buy equipment, anc cant unlock things faster than you do. Research before you talk. I bought premium for maps, gamemodes, and guns. You getting mad on how I SPEND MY OWN MONEY gets me kinda mad.
I agree with you masterchief1598 :P
Anyway, im looking forward to bf4, it will be awesome.

whoa, don't get me wrong here, im looking forward to bf4 as well. All I was saying were my expectations and those happen to be some improvements (on the already pretty good bf3)
I thought you get to unlock everything straight away with that. My bad then, but i'm saying you CAN unlock everything from the start and that's wrong. Just let people unlock everything like they should. Imo it's more fun that way and does the replayability some good

It's not hard to make a game over a couple years better then a game where its selling point is yearly planned sellings and returning buyers hoping to find that same enjoyment they found in the last game :P thts why i stopped buying cod games. Too much hype and repetitveness for my liking.

If it has the same kind of garbage single player campaign as BF3, then I'll pass. I thought MoH Warfighter had a better campaign. Yes, yes... I know the BF franchise is mostly about multiplayer, but I never play it.

I thought the campaign started off well enough. It was a little inconsistent until you got to the tank level. The tank level kicked ass, but everything after that was just... awful. The final battle through the mansion/stronghold was one of the worst-designed levels I have played in a game in 5-6 years (not counting all of Soldier of Fortune Payback). That end segment played like some third-rate budget shooter from 2002. The stronghold was filled with room after identical room, and corridor after identical corridor. There was nothing even somewhat interesting, and the last third or so of the game felt like it was thrown together in about four days.

with everything in it but it will be super awesome if they Think well before making any patches for the game because the bugs in BATTLEFIELD 3 of the new patches they release is terrible and too many
I hope they will think of something that can fix this issue (^_^)
