This year Battlefield 4 will be going against Call of Duty: Ghosts and the new shooter will also have competition from Destiny and Titan fall next year.
Producer Patrick Bach has commented that he finds the competition exciting and feels like it's a great way to motivate developers in making Battlefield 4 the best that it can be. In the end, Bach says EA and DICE will have the best shooter this year:
"I think [competition is] beneficial for everyone. Consumers, first, of course, they get more choice. For us, we need to think about what is Battlefield really about so we don't dilute the franchise in any way. We need to focus down on what makes Battlefield awesome, and make it even more awesome.
It will be interesting to see how the two FPS giants do later this year. Battlefield 4 will be released October 29, 2013 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC while CoD Ghosts will be released November 5 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
