Two F’ ups in a single day? Now that’s really something. A couple of hours ago, we informed you about BF4’s banner in the Origin pre-purchase page of Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Electronic Arts was quick enough to respond and remove it. Battlefield’s Twitter team on the other hand debunked the BF4 rumors by stating that if there isn’t anything in Battlefield.com, then it is not real. However, the team decided to completely remove that post and replace with one that hints at BF4.
This was Battlefield’s Twitter original message (that was thankfully captured by Reddit‘s bots and as you can see, the Twitter page has been removed):
“Battlefield 4? If it isn’t on Battlefield.com, it isn’t official! :)”
“BF4? Maybe one day. Remember, if it’s not on Battlefield.com it’s not official.”
Can you spot the additional line that was put? Yeap, the Battlefield Twitter team decided to – deliberately – throw a hint. The big question now is why did the Battlefield team decide to remove the original message and replace it with one that offers such a hint. In other words, Battlefield 4 is coming but it won’t be out anytime soon (as we suspect that it will hit next-generation consoles and the current ones).
Let’s also not forget that Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s and Battlefield 3’s lead designer, David Goldfarb, resigned from the company yesterday. The timing is too perfect to be just a coincidence.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
