Recently an image on EA's Origin service appeared saying if you pre-order Medal of Honor: Warfighter you would gain access to the Battlefield 4 beta. The only problem with that is Battlefield 4 had never really been mentioned as releasing any time soon nor even being in development. DICE has been working on various DLC for Battlefield 3, so why would there be a sequel so soon? Well, EA has gone ahead and confirmed all those rumors by saying Battlefield 4 does exist and the beta will begin next fall. There was no mention of a release date for the full game, just the beta for BF4 will begin next year. DICE issued a statement saying it is still committed to Battlefield 3 and its focus is on the current game for the time being. The studio said it is not ready to talk about BF4 just yet, which can be a good sign. Then again, you have to wonder if future Battlefield games will follow the same path, where a game comes out and then barely two years later the beta arrives for the sequel.
