The new Battlefield Hardline beta is anxiously being awaited by fans of the franchise. It has already been confirmed that there will be no cap on progression level so players will really be able to put the beta to test. It appears that the Battlefield Hardline beta release date has been leaked. If the date is true then expect it to land in the first week of February.

Apparently this email was sent to remind YouTube users about the date on which the new Battlefield Hardline beta goes live so that they can get to work on their YouTube and Twitch assignments.

Reports on reddit suggest that some gamers already have access to the beta and they’re currently playing it to put footage together that will be made public once the beta launches.

If the date provided in this email is correct then the Battlefield Hardline beta will be available on February 3rd. The public release of this title is slated for March 17th, 2015.
