DICE, an Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:ERTS) studio, announced yesterday afternoon that 'Battlefield 3,' the next installment of the company's Battlefield series, will be available on October 25, 2011.
After spending three years in development, the game will debut with the all-new Frostbite 2 game engine.
Patrick Bach, Executive Producer said, "We are proud to finally open the curtains and reveal Battlefield 3. The core development team has been together since 2005. We've grown together, taken some knocks together and now, we're ready to take first person shooters to a whole new level, together. Like so many gamers out there, we've had some pretty wild ideas about what we'd want to see in a shooter. Until now, it was all just fantasy. But with Frostbite 2, even our most far-reaching ideas are becoming a reality. This is the game we've always wanted to create."
Previews of the game will be shown on the PlayStation 3 and PC this week at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles.
ERTS is trading down 1.16% at $23.52 per share.
