Battlefield Hardline Confirmed

A new Battlefield Hardline website is online, as EA DICE takes a hard line on the leaked details about the next installment in the shooter series. The site offers newsletter signups, and promises an unveiling at E3 on June 9th at 3:00 pm EDT. A leaked trailer is also online, though this may disappear soon judging by the "confidential" and "do not distribute" watermarks (thanks DSOGaming). Finally, there's an accompanying announcement on the EA website where Steve Papoutsis confirms this is being developed by Visceral Games and that this will depart the military theme for more of a cops versus criminals shooter. Here's word:

On behalf of everyone at EA and Visceral Games, Im fired up to confirm our next project Battlefield Hardline. The game launches this fall and its a brand new series in the Battlefield franchise, set against the backdrop of a genre we all love the war on crime and the battle between cops and criminals.

Several years ago, I was at an internal EA meeting in Barcelona with creative leaders from across the company. It was there I met Karl Magnus Troedsson, the GM of DICE, for the first time, and we immediately began talking about games Ive always loved Battlefield and KM was a huge fan of Dead Space, which I was working on at the time. We started talking about different ways we could work together, different ways we could take Battlefield and action games in a new direction. It was then that this project that became Battlefield Hardline was born.

Theres been a lot of buzz today about Battlefield Hardline were getting ready for E3 and fans found some details on our website about what were working on for the show. Weve been reading all of your comments and were excited to be going into more detail soon on the ways were adding new twists and turns to the foundation of Battlefield multiplayer and more about how were bringing our strengths at Visceral to single player.
