A new Battlefield series spin-off has been announced by EA.
Steve Papoutsis, Vice President and General Manager of Visceral Games, yesterday unveiled via the EA Blog that Battlefield Hardline would be launching this fall.
“Several years ago, I was at an internal EA meeting in Barcelona with creative leaders from across the company,” said Papoutsis.
“It was there I met Karl Magnus Troedsson, the [General Manager] of DICE for the first time, and we immediately began talking about games – I’ve always loved Battlefield and [Troedsson] was a huge fan of Dead Space, which I was working on at the time.
“We started talking about different ways we could work together, different ways we could take Battlefield and action games in a new direction. It was then that this project became Battlefield Hardline was born”
Papoutsis promised more information would be coming at this year’s E3 convention including “new twists and turns to the foundation of Battlefield multiplayer”.
The official world premiere takes place June 9th at Noon PDT (8pm UK time).
