Electronic Arts has delivered another sly dig on Activision's Call of Duty franchise. Battlefield 3's beta test press release has given another low blow to their competitor once again as it states: "Go Above and Beyond the Call". EA's Labels president Frank Gibeau recently said on the shooter's competition this holiday season: "This Christmas we're definitely going to take market share in the FPS category from those guys. Customers like competition, they like these kind of heavyweight fights so were going for it." Battlefield 3 is currently scheduled for a release on October 25th in North America and three days later in Europe. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, meanwhile, is currently scheduled for a worldwide release on November. 8th.
