GameStop: Battlefield 4 will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox 720

GameStop email claims BF4 will in fact be released on next-generation systems from Microsoft and Sony.

Battlefield 4 pre-orders are in full swing at various retailers around the world. EA’s Origin offers two pre-order bonuses, Walmart is throwing in a free copy of BF3 with a Battlefield 4 pre-order, and GameStop has their own pre-orders going on at the moment.

But so far, gamers can only pre-order Battlefield 4 on current generation systems — PC, PS3, Xbox 360. DICE refused to talk about next-gen consoles and there was no indication that the game was coming to the PS4 and Xbox 720. Until now.



GameStop Battlefield 4In a detailed email to its members regarding the Battlefield 4 pre-order, GameStop reveals that the game is scheduled for release this Fall on “PC, current generation and next generation platforms”. If there really is a next-gen version of Battlefield 4, GameStop and retailers would be some of the first parties to know.

It seems like a no-brainer to release Battlefield 4 on next-generation platforms. Both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox 720 will run on PC-based hardware, meaning porting games to the platforms will be fairly easy.

Sony and Microsoft both have embargoes and NDAs with developers and publishers on what they can and cannot say about their upcoming platforms, which is likely the reason we’re not officially seeing any Battlefield 4 pre-orders on PS4 and Xbox 720.

Battlefield 4 is currently available for pre-order at various games retailers around the globe. The pre-order bonus includes a free copy of the first Battlefield 4 DLC, called “Drone Strike Expansion Pack“.

    I, for one, am going PC all the way. I built my current Gaming Rig just before Christmas 2012 and left my PF3 version of BF3 behind.

      Weill I will be building my Gaming Rig in the next month or so, to much drama if the PS4 will be handling 60 FPS and 64 player servers.
