According to our report from earlier, it has been suggested that EA could be looking to push out a new Battlefield game, but instead of it being military-themed, which it has been for the most part, the new rumored Battlefield title is said to be a police-themed game which should make things rather interesting. Now according to additional rumors, it seems that we can look forward to said police-themed Battlefield game as soon as 2014! According to the reports, developer Visceral Games (who is also the developer of Dead Space) will be the ones heading the project which has been given the codename “Havana” and is set for a 2014 release.
DICE, who worked on Battlefield 4, would then be free to help develop a new Battlefield game that would see a 2015 release, which some have speculated to be Battlefield 5. In the past DICE has stated that they would not be able to release a new Battlefield game every year, so for the rumors to suggest that a new developer would be hired to help create an in-between sort of game while DICE works on the next flagship Battlefield title does make some sense. Visceral Games has also recently hired FPS developers for a “next-gen shooter” which feels like more evidence that a new Battlefield game could be in the works for 2014. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info.
