EA holding Battlefield 4 event March 26

Publisher to "celebrate a new era of Battlefield" later this month at San Francisco presentation coinciding with Game Developers Conference.

Electronic Arts will hold a Battlefield 4 event March 26, the publisher announced today. The event will "celebrate a new era of Battlefield," the publisher said in an invitation sent to media.

The presentation will take place during the 2013 Game Developers Conference, slated for March 25-29 in San Francisco, California. No further information was made available.

EA announced Battlefield 4 last July, revealing a beta for the game will launch during fall 2013. Those who purchased the underperforming Medal of Honor: Warfighter are guaranteed access to the beta.

Battlefield 4 may not be the only new franchise entry in the works. A report from May suggested series developer DICE was at work on a new entry in the spinoff series, Battlefield: Bad Company 3.

Forget Battlefield 4, bring on Bad Company 3... for a spin off series I liked it better that Battlefield 3.   I thought Bad Company 2 had better Multi-player than Battlefield 3, but that's just me.

Battlefield 3 is so great! Let's hope 4 isn't just another upsetting sequel.

TBH I think if EA were to release BF3/BF4 on Steam as staggered releases, they would see a lot of BF hate melting away in no time.

I still play BFBC2 as it's the best BF on Steam and so do a lot of people.

Don't get the BF3 hate. You have so much more freedom in that game than you do in Call of Duty. And it feels like a real battle. And everybody knows what to do. You don't even need a headset. But COD is just run & gunners ragging on eachother non-f*cking-stop.

I've been tired of online shooters for a while now, so hopefully BF4 can do something to get me back into them since 3 took up a lot of my time, maybe I'll check out its DLC before nobody plays the game anymore.

I bet it will be sick on next gen consoles. Its a way better game than COD. How people like spawning in 10 feet from a guy in a map the size of a shed on one of battlefields maps......  is way beyond me.

BF3 was released at October 2011, when BF4 will probably come out at early or even middle 2014. It is space of almost 3 years. Deal with that and stop moaning "why already". They make games for money, not to fulfill your wishes. Hope to see Bad Company 3 as soon as possible.

Seriously, why does everyone hate Battlefield 3 so much? It's a great game, and a rick-rolling franchise. Why doesn't everyone egg on the other games that come out every year, like sports games and Assassin's Creed...? Seriously, if you don't like the game, Don't play it! Done deal!

i'll pass....bf3 last only 6 months. then everyone abandoned it. not enough servers, hackers, glitchers, and everything just doesn't make sense for them to continue for 4.

Bring back the modding, this would make BF4 an instant hit (it's what made 1942 and 2 great).

But I don't think it will happen :(

@crunchb3rry Its a fucking bland shooter buddy, just another generic gunwank game."And it feels like a real battle", bitch please you obviously haven't played ARMA.

@Innos007666 when they fulfill my wishes then they will get my money. And I wan't a game that doesn't feel like a straightforward console port you know.....like good oldies like BF2 BFV (not to be mistaken with bad company games they suck)

@Codester_41 The ones that hate on BF3 are the ones that cant figure out why running and gunning doesnt work on BF3.

@oskuuureally, I think all game companies only care about profit. Like, why else would they be making games? Have fun on bf3 while everyone else moves on.

@02050muh there are still plenty of people who play, you must be talking about some other game

@02050muh Are you playing the same bf3 as everyone else? because when i load up theres plenty of servers, and honestly what game doesnt have glitchers and hackers?

@predatorGS Unfortunately for all of us, EA is likely to riddle the game with micro transactions in some way shape or form instead, it's inevitable, given their business strategy... :/

@vorodill Go to doctor, it might even make you feel better ... Love it or hate but EA is where most of the AAA games come from :)

@S0ulReav3r Again, they work for profit not for your love and that's how gaming industry works. You are also living in console age, where everyone looks how to earn more money and popularity by console gamers since this is the most profitable area. Nowadays PC takes the last place. Yeah and BTW - Bad Company's campaign rocks(!), when multiplayer mechanics was basis for BF3.

@travo0159 @Codester_41 running and gunning works perfectly on bf3, anyone who thinks otherwise clearly doesn't even understand that concept involves 80% of what the battlefield series is ... Running .... and gunning.

@travo0159 @Codester_41 lol YEAH! and its hilarious stalking them from 2 miles away with a sniper and watch them run like cockroaches from one place to another in circles GODDAMNED KIDS! (22 AND YOUNGER) take all the fun outta the games.

@robertcain @predatorGS yes, and maybe even worse... it's going to be free... No chance to own the game, and everybody will be able to play it.

@Aria1368 My comment was there to lighten the mood. A joke. Trying to be funny. Not a smartass.
