As the industry gets closer and closer to the next-generation of consoles, when the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 will debut is becoming more and more interesting, and a new leak for "Battlefield 4" perhaps points at when the Xbox 720 and/or PlayStation 4 will debut.

According to a report from GamingBolt yesterday, a new listing for the upcoming game "Battlefield 4" has been discovered.

Within this listing shows the details that this title will be a Wii U game, and that it will be debuting on Nov. 30, 2013.

From here, Examiner.com took a different angle on this story and saw how this story ends up telling people something different about the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4.

For those looking for justification as to how this relates to the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4, this past November, "Battlefield 4" information had been leaked from EA China revealing that this would be the third confirmed game for next-generation consoles (the first two are "The Witcher 3" and "Cyberpunk 2077").

The report suggested the game would be available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC and all next-generation consoles (Xbox 720, PlayStation 4 and Wii U).

There were plenty other details available about the game like the Commander system coming back, profiles being able to be linked with other devices like iPads, the game always needing an internet connection and that it would support cloud saving devices.

In addition, "Battlefield 4" would support body and voice control for the commander system, have better battlelog integration along with better stats reporting, allow video playback and sharing and will have three playable factions (Russia, USA and China).

Video playback and sharing? See PlayStation 4's controller Share button.

Another glaring detail that was alleged was the PS4 and Xbox 720 would be able to support up to 64 players at one time in an online match, and the two systems will feature 60 frames per second as well.

Now yes, it's possible that the Wii U version of this game could debut when the release date above suggests and that the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 ports would happen sometime later, but it wouldn't be that long according to EA.

It was only a week or two ago that EA talked about the existence of a new "Battlefield" game, and the confirmation that it would be coming during their next fiscal year, which lies between April 2013 to March 2014.

EA game label president Frank Gibeau said the company will bring a new game next year, but can't say more quite yet.

"We have a 'Battlefield' title coming next year, but we're not in a position right now to talk about our development plans and our SKU plan long term.

"That will come in about 90 days when we get to show you some 'Battlefield' stuff," Gibeau said.

So "Battlefield 4" on the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 would be looking at a release date of between Nov. 30th and March of 2014, which is a matter of four months.

Most would assume the systems will launch before or around Black Friday, so they can ride a bit of the holiday rush that invades retail stores every year, but regardless, people can expect something major to hit retailers this coming winter.
