EA is teasing an announcement at this month’s Game Developer’s Conference. In an invitation sent to IGN, EA reminds potential attendees to “save the date” and advertises an event on March 26th at a movie theater.
The invitation sports a color scheme well known to the Battlefield 3 community. However, given last years excitement about GDC, the following disappointment and the vague nature of this hint, we're taking the statement with a grain of salt. Hoping to be pleasantly surprised by EA; the Game Developer’s Conference will take place in San Francisco from March 25th through 29th.
"This April, not only is it rumored that Microsoft will unveil their next-generation Xbox, but sources now claim Electronic Arts will also take the stage to announce and exclusive partnership with the company.
Two sources have told CVG that an agreement has been secured between EA and Microsoft’s Xbox firm which will be discussed during Microsoft’s rumored Xbox event. It’s unclear however, what exactly will be shown or what the terms of the deal will be." mp1st.com
Given EA's partnership with Sony for BF3 it was somewhat of a surprise to see Activision during the PS4 reveal instead of DICE. Now we are left wondering whether a possible partnetship between EA and Microsoft will mean more than just an exclusive one week early access to Battlefield 4.
