Battlefield Hardline beta coming next week, apparently

Hardline beta

There’s been rumours circulating for a few days now that the Battlefield Hardline beta was just around the corner and it seems that the Xbox Marketplace have finally confirmed it, by accident.

A store page for the beta popped up earlier today revealing that the beta will be available to download on 3rd February 2015 and has unfortunately now been pulled down. Thankfully, VG247 managed to grab a screenshot.

This is also the same date that a EA Ronku email leaked earlier in the week, so it’s pretty believable!

What a bunch of plonkers, eh? Two leaks in one week.

Microsoft Potentially Reveals Arkham Knight Release Date

Arkham Knight

Just before E3, Rocksteady confirmed the sad news that the third and final chapter in their Batman Trilogy ‘Arkham Knight’ was to be delayed till 2015. Reports in the last week suggested a possible January release for the game.

But over the weekend, Microsoft’s Xbox Store was showing a listing for Arkham Knight with a February 24th release date for the game on the Xbox One.

It is not uncommon for online stores to use ‘Placeholders’ to list items before they are released, but normally it is the pricing that gets the most attention. Nothing has been confirmed by Rocksteady so far, but if it is legit, it is a good indication of how 2015 will start off with a bang!
