Gamestop CEO J. Paul Raines tweeted yesterday afternoon that he “got to see Battlefield 4 today” via the official Gamestop Twitter. Just like that, Battlefield 4 is confirmed.
I initially thought that it might have been a type-o or something silly, but the tweet has since been implicitly confirmed by two separate and official sources. About twenty minutes after the Gamestop tweet, the official account for EA’s online storefront Origin tweeted simply that “BF4 is coming!” and launched a Battlefield sale on the service they represent.
Still not convinced? The official Battlefield account retweeted Raines’ original message, asking that everyone “BE ADVISED.”
There’s no media, screens, or info out for Battlefield 4 just yet, but you can replace your desire for BVVVT BVVT BVVVT trailers with the previously-mentioned Battlefield sale on Origin. Battlefield 3 is a ridiculously cheap $10, with BF3 Premium costing $30.
Older games like Battlefield 2142, Battlefield 2, and Battlefield Bad Company 2 are also available for $5 each.
