A "police-themed" Battlefield title is currently in development at Dead Space studio Visceral Games, according to a report by Polygon.

The site claims that the project, allegedly code-named Havana, is due for release later this year. Former Criterion team members at Ghost Games UK have also been offered supporting work in the project or face redundancy, the report states.

Polygon's report follows claims from Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter last year who said that he believed "Criterion Games is working on a military shooter that may become a brand extension for the Battlefield franchise in FY:15."

He continued: "[Wedbush] spoke with [EA] management [in December], and although they have not yet announced a version of Battlefield for FY:15, they confirmed that our understanding is spot on and that if a version of Battlefield were to be released in FY:15, it would be developed by a studio other than DICE."

Pachter later revised his report, claiming that he meant to say that Visceral Games is behind the project, not Criterion.

It's also believed that Visceral Games contributed significantly to the development of Battlefield 4. has contacted EA for comment.

This is probably going to be a DLC for bf4 like the Vietnam expansion for bfbc2 or EA has decided to just beat the franchise to death now and draw as much money as possible.

Hopefully it doesn't take 6 months+ after launch like BF3 and BF4 did to be in a technical and gameplay balanced state. The concept however sounds really cool, ever since the people doing Police Warfare cancelled their KS and since Gamespy was cancelled thus killing off SWAT4 I've been looking for the next awesome police shooter.

Yes, I already have Payday 2. This project sounds more like a large scale and/or pvp thing also.
