Electronic Arts COO John Pleasants has inadvertendly confirmed that Battlelfield 3 is in development during a conference call with stock holders, according to G4.

There are currently absolutely zero details available on the game, other than the fact that it will definitely not be out as part of this fiscal year.

"I've had the luxury of looking at Battlefield 3 over at DICE in Sweden and was highly impressed by the way the team is working on that product," said Pleasants in a call with members of William Blair Growth Stock.

"Of course, that's not [coming out] in the fiscal year, but that is a product that is looking very good," he continued.

That means that DICE currently has at least three new Battlefield games in development - Battlefield Heroes, Battlefield 1943 and now the full-blow sequel, Battlefield 3. Could they be in danger of over-saturating the market with the Battlefield franchise?

Oh, and there's Battlefield: Bad Company 2 as well, so really there are four games in development that bear the Battlefield label. Yikes. Let us know your thoughts in the forums.
