Update: We've heard back from EA and, surprise, the publisher won't be making any comment.
Original story: Battlefield 4 has been mentioned by EA.
The publisher dangled Battlefield 4 beta access like a golden carrot, as a reward for people pre-ordering Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
Said carrot-dangling was done on EA's home turf: Origin.
Blooper? PR trick?
The tweet apparently said, "Battlefield 4? If it isn't on Battlefield.com, it isn't official!"
The mention of Battlefield 4 suggests that Battlefield: Bad Company 3 may not be the next blockbuster shooter made by DICE after all.
