Last year, Battlefield 3 was released as a potential competitor of Modern Warfare 3. This year, however, it seems like EA won’t be releasing any Battlefield iteration rather a Medal of Honor game is set to counter Activision’s Black Ops 2.
We may not see any Battlefield this year but, according to an advertisement on EA’s digital distribution hub, pre-ordering Medal of Honor: Warfighter can earn you access to Battlefield 4 beta. When? Well, none of us have any clue about it as EA has not made any official announcement about the game yet.
The sequel is not a surprise but the narrow window is a bit disturbing, as it happens so often that too many sequels in short intervals can reduce audience’s interest, and franchise can lose its charm. I just hope that this isn’t the case with Battlefield 3.
