EA Registers Battlefield 13 - 20 Domains. But Who Got 21?

EA are a company that thinks ahead. The Battlefield series may only be working on its 4th pure edition right now, but the publisher has just registered domains for www.battlefield13.com to www.battlefield20.com, ensuring that they’re secure for at least the next few Christmasses.

But Rock, Paper, Shotgun is a company that thinks further ahead. RPS is a business that doesn’t rely on such medium-to-long-term thinking. And so it is that we will be the first place for all your www.battlefield21.com news.

As reported by Joystiq, spotted by Fusible, EA have squatted their cyberbottoms on the domains for 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20. They already owned 1 to 9, but have missed out on 10, 11 and 12. (Don’t visit 11, btw – Chrome warns me it’s a phishy site). Clearly realising that this was a problem that was only going to continue growing, the scooped up 13-20 last week.

EA previously paid $80,000 for battlefield.com. I imagine they probably spent about $100 in a bulk deal on the most recent eight. We paid £25 for www.battlefield21.com.

On the assumption that BF becomes an annual treat, split amongst two dev teams, come 2030 we are quids in. (What’s $80,000 in Futurespace Dollars?)

Slightly more helpfully, the pic at the top is a new screenshot released today – you can click on it to make it big, to reveal BF4 in all its pale grey glory.

There are no known numbers higher than 21.
