Battlefield 4 release date confirmed in leaked poster
Just a day before the Battlefield 4 unveiling at GDC (behind closed doors, of course), we have another major leak: EB Games’ (a popular video game chain in Europe) promotional promotional poster for Battlefield 4 has leaked, showing a pre-order incentive (a pair of real dog tags).
More importantly, the game has been confirmed for release in Fall 2013. Up until now, the release date was always pegged to EA’s “Fiscal 2013”, which actually ends on March 31, 2014. Which meant that there was a slight chance that the Battlefield 4 release date might get pushed to next year.
That’s now looking very unlikely, as retailers — starting with EB Games — are already advertising and promoting the game with a Fall 2013 release date. EB Games and others have likely received posters and promotional material, but are to keep it behind closed doors until Battlefield 4 is unveiled on March 27. The EB Games leak also shows us the first pre-order incentives, in this case, real life dog tags. For BF3, pre-order incentives were usually limited to pieces of in-game content such as a special gun and unlocks.
In either case, check out the poster below. It’s based on the already available Battlefield 4 artwork that we’ve see so many times before. It also appears to be sprinkled with the teaser images we’ve seen over the past few days. Make sure to check out our Battlefield 4 teaser poster analysis as well.
