Last week EA sent out invites to a GDC event on March 26 at which it promises to reveal the game and "celebrate a new era of Battlefield".
EA confirmed that the game is in development at DICE last July in a video announcing that those who pre-ordered the Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition would be granted access to Battlefield 4 beta in autumn 2013.
Battlefield 4 will continue the series' focus on modern warfare, according to DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson, who said last August. "We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful."
The Battlefield 4 release date is expected to fall in the fourth quarter of 2013.
