Battlefield Hardline seems to have a problem with leaks. The game’s very existence was leaked before it was officially announced, along with videos of old footage that were taken down in short order. Then information about its beta was leaked, as emails about the PlayStation E3 Experience were sent out early (we assume). Now, two more leaks appeared in quick succession.
The first was another gameplay video. It has already been removed, but viewers who saw it in time came away with a favorable impression.
Next came a leaked trailer. Either it was an official announcement just pretending to be a leak, or Visceral and EA gave up, because the trailer was officially released shortly afterwards.
It’s a short trailer, but one very important piece of information it reveals is the release date. Battlefield Hardline will come out on October 21. If you’re interested in seeing more, there will be an E3 livestream of the game on June 9 at 1 PM PDT/4 PM EDT.

Following several rumors and leaks that pointed toward the existence of an upcoming Battlefield game with a “cops and robbers” theme, EA officially announced the game yesterday. Battlefield Hardline will come out sometime this fall, and more details will be revealed at E3.
The game’s website was also unveiled, although so far it contains very little information.
Leaked videos have been uploaded, removed, and re-uploaded over the past couple of days, but EA says the footage is from 6 months ago and out of date. What we know so far is that there will be both single player and multiplayer, the two opposing sides are thieves and SWAT members, and it seems to have four classes called Enforcer, Mechanic, Operator and Professional.
Official details will be given to us at E3… or earlier, if we show Visceral Games that we’re interested.
We're pouring everything we've got into this & stoked to share details on June 9 – maybe even a little more before then if you want it.

We expect Battlefield Hardline to come out on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Its presence on the PS3 and Xbox 360 is still uncertain.
