Battlefield Heading Back To Mobile
EA promises a new "high-end and high performance" first-person shooter.
With Battlefield 4 set to arrive on consoles next week - and next-gen systems the following month - the series continues to be hugely popular. That said, mobile players may feel left out. Not to worry, though - EA hasn't forgotten about that particular audience.
In an interview with The New York Times, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau explained that a new "high-end and high performance" Battlefield game is on its way to mobile devices, even though a release date was noticeably absent.
Talking about how well the game's Commander Mode works with tablet devices, Gibeau explained, "We are working on a mobile game of Battlefield that will be high-end and high performance.
"It's our bet that we can successfully pull that off. But we're embarking on something no one has ever done before - to get these games to inter-operate between platforms. Will it work? It already has in some cases. Will it work for all franchises? Not all franchises will make the transition. Battlefield might be a little harder," he said.
This isn't the first time Battlefield will make a dent in mobile, as Battlefield: Bad Company 2 came out a couple of years before.
Battlefield may arrive in 2014, though a later date could also be possible. We'll have more in the near future.
