Battlefield Hardline Coming This Fall
On behalf of everyone at EA and Visceral Games, Iâ€™m fired up to confirm our next project â€“ Battlefield Hardline. The game launches this fall and itâ€™s a brand new series in the Battlefield franchise, set against the backdrop of a genre we all love â€“ the war on crime and the battle between cops and criminals.
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 â€“ Iâ€™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.
Thereâ€™s been a lot of buzz today about Battlefield Hardline â€“ weâ€™re getting ready for E3 and fans found some details on our website about what weâ€™re working on for the show. Weâ€™ve been reading all of your comments and weâ€™re excited to be going into more detail soon on the ways weâ€™re adding new twists and turns to the foundation of Battlefield multiplayer and more about how weâ€™re bringing our strengths at Visceral to single player.
I hope youâ€™ll join us for the official world premiere on June 9 at Noon PDT, and sign up for updates on the new game at our website.
