I’m happy to admit that we as gaming fans and journalists often read more into things being said than maybe we should. Just think back to all the rumours about MGS4 on the Xbox 360, Half Life Episode 3 and a handheld Xbox.
All of which were massively popular rumours that are still to come true but this time I think we can all agree that it’s hard to misconstrue what EA’s President, Frank Gibeau, meant when he had the following to say to a group of students.
There is going to be a Battlefield 4
Well there you go then, official confirmation of Battlefield 4 from the president of EA Games themselves. You can’t get more official than that.
… oh wait, what’s this. EA has announced that Frank wasn’t really announcing Battlefield 4 but rather speaking broadly about the Battlefield brand.
Now forgive my ignorance here, that’s not broad or about the brand. He announced the blatantly obvious fact that they will be making a Battlefield 4.
Sometimes I just hate marketing departments, they forget they only have a job because of the games they pimp and should maybe stop trying to control every last scrap of information about them.
