The pre-order appeared as an offering in the U.S. Origin store, but is absent from the online retailer in other regions. The North American retailer quickly updated its artwork, replacing the banner with one promoting Battlefield 3 Premium instead.
Battlefield‘s official Twitter account has attempted to debunk the rumours, announcing that “If it isn’t on Battlefield.com, it isn’t official!” …but then deleted the tweet, reposting a message that reads:
BF4? Maybe one day. Remember, if it’s not on Battlefield.com it’s not official.
Obviously, the instructions to take from that? Keep your eyes glued to the official Battlefield.com for further updates.
It looks like, twelve months later, the team’s returning the favour – albeit a little prematurely.
