“The team at Visceral Games would like to thank those that have participated in the Battlefield Hardline closed Beta,” the studio said via an official blog post.

They added: “We’ve seen some incredible feats demonstrated on the virtual streets of LA – everything from massive breach charge explosions and intense heists to criminal riding shotgun and cops banding together to protect vaults.

“All of your time spent in game and feedback shared with us will help shape Battlefield Hardline over the coming months.”

Despite having cut Xbox fans out of the early beta experience, a second Battlefield Hardline beta will be offered later this year for all.

A current and past-gen release, the Battlefield Hardline release date has been set for October 24.
