Yesterday a tweet from the official Battlefield account warned that nothing is official until it's appeared on Oh wait. Here it is . Battlefield 4 is real.

"The team at DICE is hard at work on the next entry in the Battlefield series," reads the message from the team at DICE. "To ensure access to the exclusive Battlefield 4 beta, shooter fans can pre-order Medal of Honor Warfighter today."

Come not even a little bit? Show us a bit of concept art. A gun render. ANYTHING.

"We're not ready to talk about Battlefield 4 yet - in the meantime, we hope you will continue to enjoy Battlefield 3 and all the Battlefield 3 Premium content still to come."
