This will undoubtedly result in gamers inching through levels, scouring the area for embedded secrets that will hint at the developer's next project.
As noted by the Battlefield 3 Blog , DICE has tossed in a small piece of graffiti in the newly released Back to Karkand expansion pack. As you can see by this screenshot, it's just a number: 2143.
It could just be graffiti but as the blog states, DICE has dropped little Easter Eggs into their add-on packs before. Plus, you see "2143" in other places as well, like the license plate of a car and in a billboard advertisement. EA announced Battlefield 2142 back in 2006; what are we looking at now? Battlefield 2143 ? The game that takes place exactly 200 years after Battlefield 1943 , which released last year and sold around 1.2 million digital copies?
The only response from EA was as follows :
""We love our fans attention to detail and hunger for more Battlefield but there is no news on this front."
