Well I'm not sure if this is accidental or not, but here's the first 7 minute gameplay video.
It's official. The new BF is called Hardline, and is made by Visceral.
"The game launches this fall and it’s a brand new series in the Battlefield franchise, set against the backdrop of a genre we all love – the war on crime and the battle between cops and criminals."
It seems that the next video game in the Battlefield franchise is at the moment under development at the Visceral Games team and that it will use the name SWAT, with launch set to take place during the autumn of this year.
The information comes from the Twitter feed of an insider that has been offering accurate details about unrevealed projects of other major teams, but there has been no confirmation from any other source, although the game was allegedly recently shown to a limited audience in its alpha form.
Apparently, an official announcement that will only include limited amount of footage and details about Battlefield SWAT is being planned for the upcoming E3 2014 event, which will start on June 10 in Los Angeles.
A SWAT video game that uses the Battlefield setting will probably focus on smaller maps, more tactical movement and on a smaller number of enemies.
Let's treat this as rumor for now.
