EA Confirms Battlefield Hardline releasing this Fall
The newest game in the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield Hardline, will be released this Autumn, EA and Visceral Games have announced. Hardline takes place against the backdrop of the war on crime and the battle between cops and criminals.
Steve Papoutsis, vice president and general manager of Visceral Games was fired up regarding the announcement of Battlefield Hardline and said, “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.”
He added, “There’s been a lot of buzz today about Battlefield Hardline – we’re getting ready for E3 and fans found some details on our website about what we’re working on for the show. We’ve been reading all of your comments and 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.”
A leaked seven minute video of leaked footage from Battlefield Hardline appeared on YouTube which revealed gameplay and story details, however it has since been taken down following a copyright claim from EA. The game will be featured at E3 next month where EA will reveal more regarding the game.
