All-but-confirming earlier reports, EA has opened a website for Battlefield: Hardline, which from the previous stories and the official imagery appears to ditch global warfare in favour of some very heavy-handed police action.

Counter-Strike with tanks, anyone?

The site is saying there'll be a more comprehensive unveiling on June 9 (ie, at E3) at 12:00PDT.

If you're worrying about DICE spreading themselves too thin, this game is being developed not by the Swedish studio, but by Visceral. So hey, maybe the singleplayer campaign - and there will be a singleplayer campaign - might be better this time around.
