This needs to happen more often. I am so sick of this crappy teasing. Is it made? Show it or shut up. It has to be the dumbest marketing strategy. Is it like that carrot on a stick mentality? keep your product awareness? All it does is piss me off, lol...

It always backfires too. Overhype and show little or no gameplay and then be surprised when the internet is underwhelmed.

The real BF fans want to see gameplay, and the non-BF fans aren't going to care about some CGI trailer.

oooh, if it's a f***ing CG trailer..... I can't believe they still do that. It's just as bad as a tease. It means nothing. We want to see the GAME.

If it was a surprise release in June that would be pretty insane. Summer doesn't usually have s*** going on for games so would be big. Maybe have the announcement trailer early June and then at the end just say, oh yea and by the way it's out at the end of the month.

Possible considering a number of BF titles have launched in June or earlier, but I think it is unlikely. Most likely is an October/November release.

But, I do hope you're right. BF in June/July would be great.

Yeah I doubt a surprise release would happen. Granted they said they are ahead of schedule, but I think Oct/Nov is more realistic. Maybe September if they want to beat some fall games?

If this thing were in beta we'd hear about it by now. As others said it wouldn't surprise me if there's a June alpha/beta test open to the public.

This is exactly why the over-hype cycle will bite them. I would not be surprised if we only see a CGI trailer and then they're shocked when people wanted more.
