Rumours were previously pointing at a police themed Battlefield currently in development from February 2014, and after todays fresh leaks courtesy of EA themselves via their Battlelog it looks set to be named, Battlefield: Hardline. Internally the next Battlefield is code-named Havana and is in development from Visceral Games who are best known for the Dead Space franchise.
Both a logo and a set of icons for Battlefield: Hardline were discovered on EA servers this afternoon (and have since been taken down). It is also known that four soldier classes (Enforcer, Mechanic, Operator, Professional), along with references to a map named (“MP_Downtown”) for use in the game’s upcoming Beta were detailed. Identifiable gameplay modes have been revealed as Blood Money, Bomb Squad and Carrier Assault.

EA could reveal more details for Battlefield: Hardline at E3 2014 next month, or alternatively since the slip-up could announce something imminently. Either way we’ll keep you posted when more details surface.
