    Earlier today, there was a rumor going around that Visceral Games was developing a new Battlefield game, and EA has officially confirmed it with a page on the official Battlefield website indicating a reveal on June 9th. Whereas other Battlefield games were all about wars and the military, it looks like this game will break the trend and introduce a "Cops and robbers" type-gameplay.

    I knew the folks at EA liked their "Payday", but this is ridiculous!

    About cops and robbers ? Maybe this is what the FPS genre needs right now instead of (insert military shooter here)

    Cops and robbers sounds like a unique change. Will keep an eye out during E3 week.

    Though I actually did not mind it hopefully this will be more Payday and less Kane and Lynch 2. I do have to wonder how it might work with counterstrike.

    That said modern military type games always seem to skew towards the special forces/police in all but name type modes anyway (contrast say Rainbow Six: Vegas and some of the SWAT games) so this is probably closer to a minor thematic shift anyway. However if this can mean they stop trying to clone COD (usually at not inconsiderable cost) and do their own thing then more power to them.

    So fast after the release of BF4, they really feel confident. This must be a separate project, in no means a competitor of BF4. I'm sure BF4 will keep getting DLC like planned.
    Happy to see this really, Battlefield is an excellent series
