Battlefield: Hardline Officially Confirmed

EA and Visceral Games have officially announced the existence of Battlefield: Hardline after the game was leaked earlier today.  “The game launches this fall and it’s a brand new series in the Battlefield franchise, set against the backdrop of a genre we all love – the war on crime and the battle between cops and criminals,” Visceral Games Vice President and General Manager Steve Papoutsis confirmed.

As leaked earlier today, Battlefield: Hardline will be developed by Visceral Games and will be police-themed.  A piece of art was released showcasing SWAT, robbers, helicopters, cars, planes and armored vehicles.

“There’s been a lot of buzz today about Battlefield Hardline – we’re getting ready for E3 and fans found some details on our website about what we’re working on for the show. We’ve been reading all of your comments and we’re excited to be going into more detail soon on the ways we’re adding new twists and turns to the foundation of Battlefield multiplayer and more about how we’re bringing our strengths at Visceral to single player.”

Battlefield: Hardline will makes it worldwide premiere at EA’s E3 2014 Press Conference on June 9.  It releases this fall.
