Our knowledge of Battlefield 4 is pretty limited, but at least a few parties are now privy to more information on the upcoming game. At least one retailer has reported that Electronic Arts has shown the title privately, fueling speculation of an impending reveal.
GameStop (via NeoGAF) tweeted that EA had shown the game, and EA's own Origin subsequently confirmed the account with a retweet. "Got to see Battlefield 4 today and all I can say is WOW!" the tweet read. "Thanks @EA for the sneak peek. Can't wait for you all to see it." We know that the game is at least getting a beta in the fall.
It could be mere coincidence, but the timing seems suspiciously close to Sony's event tonight, where it is expected to debut its next console hardware. Sony already enjoyed a relationship with the series, gaining timed exclusive access to Battlefield 3 expansions as an answer to Microsoft's similar deal with Call of Duty.
