Battlefield 2142 hinted at by Digital Illusions producer

Screencap from an alleged video of Battlefield 2142Producer Dan Blackstone of Digital Illusions CE has hinted at the imminent announcement of "something very big" in an interview with Shacknews, which GameSpot presumes is most likely Battlefield 2142, a most futuristic sequel.

The senior producer of Battlefield 2: Modern Combat for the 360 gave that little tidbit at the end of the interview, stating: "We’re about to announce something very big, so stay tuned. One other interviewer asked this and I gave him a hint, so it’s only fair that I do the same for you: 3213/3X2. Or said another way: S.R. 4588164." GameSpot subsequently put two and two together and came up with 2142, the square root of 4588164 as well as the result of (3213/3)*2, so it appears that Call of Duty and Ghost Recon are not the only FPS franchises taking their games into the future.

For an alleged video from the futuristic game labeled "'Stella' Minsk Level Video Showcase," check out the first link listed in the "See also" section below. While we don't know whether such a title would be based on PCs, current-gen consoles, the 360/PS3, or even the PSP, there are apparently quite a few walking tanks being employed by the armies of tomorrow if this clip is to be believed. (Metal Gear!) April Fool's is ah' comin' up soon, however, so please take this news with just a grain ah' salt.
