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 blood-stained evidence.

Both the advert (spotted by Digital Spy) and a tweet by the Battlefield account (picked up by VG247) have since been removed.

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.
