Battlefield Hardline beta will return later this year, on all platforms

Battlefield Hardline's beta concluded today, but developer Visceral Games will run another period of beta testing later this year, studio head Steve Papoutsis announced today.

Publisher Electronic Arts confirmed the existence of Battlefield Hardline shortly before E3 2014, and announced during EA's E3 press briefing on June 9 that a beta would begin that day on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. Papoutsis thanked beta participants today, and said that their feedback will "help make Hardline a better game."

Papoutsis added that Visceral will launch a second beta for Hardline this fall on "all announced platforms" — that's PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in addition to PS4 and PC — that will show off other elements of the game. According to Papoutsis, Visceral still has more to reveal about Hardline's multiplayer component as well as its single-player campaign, which will be presented in a manner that's similar to episodes of a television show.
