Battlefield 4 will be set in modern day.

There have been some rumors that Battlefield 4 could actually be set in the future, e.g. Battlefield 2143. But that appears to be less likely now, according to recent comments made by DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson. Speaking at GDC Europe, he said that they intend to stay in the modern era with Battlefield 4, saying:
“We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is. We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful.”
Battlefield’s main competitor, Call of Duty, will be going futuristic this Fall with Black Ops 2, where it’s set a decade into the future. Technically, it’s not a true sci-fi shooter like Battlefield 2142 was, but it does seem like the obvious direction to take a franchise in. However, Troedsson had another quick comment about the Battlefield 4 name:
“And, yes, I know Battlefield 4 is probably the most creative name we ever could come up with. I can’t comment any more on that because it’s all secret”
His remark was a bit sarcastic, and it could indicate of a possible name change for Battlefield 4, or at least a sub title of sorts. Battlefield 4: Attack Of The EOD bots, anyone?
