Game Informer are reporting that DICE and EA could be looking at offering a transfer system for their upcoming current-gen and next-gen FPS title Battlefield 4, allowing players to transfer their profile data across systems.
Earlier in the week EA Sports revealed that a new system would be in place for players to transfer their Ultimate Team profiles across the generation jump, with FIFA 14 and Madden 25 supporting this feature. Fans of Battlefield 4 took to Twitter to question whether this feature would make its way to DICE's FPS, with the Battlefield Twitter offering a hopeful response.
We've heard reports that players would like their stats and progression to transfer from current to next-gen in #BF4. We're investigating.
Obviously this kind of system would help a number of players not wanting to wait until the next-generation of consoles appear, but want to get in on the Battlefield 4 action as soon as possible. Those players who do take up the action on current-gen systems and then move to next-gen PlayStation 4 and Xbox One would definitely like a transfer feature to ensure their hard work is kept intact.
Battlefield 4 is due on October 31st 2013 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions also in the works.
