Obvious piece of new is obvious; according to a blog post made by EA Labels President Frank Gibeau, Battlefield 4 is now definitely set to mark the next-generation console debut for the series.
The blog post, titled “Transition is our Friend”, had the EA Labels boss doing his lyrical waxing thing about Battlefield 4 and its next-generation destination:
“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.”
“At a GameStop company meeting earlier this week, we gave 500 store managers a sneak peak at Battlefield 4. The game received a huge ovation and thousands of fans reacted to a single enthusiastic Tweet by GameStop’s CEO.”
This news should prompt little surprise however, as it was previously confirmed that a new Battlefield would be arriving in early 2014 and its convergence with shiny new hardware from Sony and Microsoft would be a given.
