Decided to skip Call of Duty: Black Ops II in favour of the next instalment in the Battlefield franchise? Then you could be waiting a while.

Publisher EA has this week confirmed that a Battlefield 4 beta will kick off in the autumn of 2013, which in turn suggests that a retail release may not happen until Christmas 2013 at the earliest.

Details surrounding the Battlefield 4 beta are few and far between, but EA has confirmed that exclusive access will be given to players who pre-order the Limited Edition release of Medal of Honor: Warfighter prior to that game's launch on October 23.

The Battlefield franchise, developed by DICE, has proven to be a hit on multiple platforms and the timing of Battlefield 4 suggests that the game's release could coincide with the availability of next-generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony. A launch title for Xbox 8 or PlayStation 4, perhaps?

Further details on the pre-order promotion are available at medalofhonor.com/bf4-beta.

I wouldn't buy MoH anyway, but $70?! Seriously?! Sounds as though they're trying to charge players twice for BF4!
RIP battlefield, EA suck the life out of all the best games/franchise's. BF4 will be rushed out to beat MW4 to market as was BF3 to beat MW3, the obligatory beta in September to for-fill the MOHWF pre-orders then expect the same bug ridden half finished game in October. A game focused on consoles and dumb casual gameplay, on PC battlefield is an embarrassment compared to past games like BF2 and 2142. BF3/4 is and will be designed to appeal to the lowest common denominator, console scrubs. I as a PC gamer I will look elsewhere for my FPS gaming.
I really hope BF4 integrates into the BF3 battlelog and acts almost like a huge expansion

Actually BF3 has proved itself to be a lot more than that, its had its set backs (i.e. the big patch before the most recent one kinda ruined the entire gameplay) but the devs seem to be committed to making it good for real PC gamers.

I'd agree. They seem to be patching it to make it like COD. I gave up on it with the last patch - final straw was allowing premium players to queue jump (I bought the full game so why penalise me?). I'm fed up with EA attitude to gamers - it stinks. I've moved onto World of Tanks now (yes its not a FPS but tanks was my reason for playing BF3).
