Leaked Battlefield: Hardline gameplay is six months old

"See the real deal at E3," teases Visceral general manager.

Battlefield: Hardline

The Battlefield: Hardline footage leaked earlier today is from a six month old build, Visceral Games general manager Steve Papoutsis said on Twitter.

“So yeah, that happened,” Papoutsi said in a tweet. “Not how we wanted to unveil Hardline, but all good. Didn’t want to wait til E3 anyway, so let’s talk about it.”

He continued, “Video that’s out there was for an internal meeting. It’s 6 months old now and team has been cranking since then. See the real deal at E3.”

And in two more tweets, added, “Excited to see so much buzz for the old footage. Love it. Can’t wait to show you how much further the team has taken things. We’re pouring everything we’ve got into this & stoked to share details on June 9 – maybe even a little more before then if you want it.”

A full reveal is planned for EA’s E3 press conference on June 9.
