This brand new press release
from EA threw us a bit; it basically includes the first official confirmation (that we've seen, anyway) that Battlefield 3 is currently in development, in the form of promising it to you if you buy the limited edition of Medal of Honor. There's no other information (other than MOH stuff), but here's what they say:
Want to be among the first to get hands-on with Battlefield 3? If you own Medal of Honor Limited Edition you will receive an invitation to the Battlefield 3 beta within 12-months following the release of Medal of Honor.
It's also up on the EA beta site
. An interesting tactic; bribing you with beta access to a game that will no doubt be hugely anticipated, but only if you buy one that is slightly less than anticipated
