We’ve been hearing for a while that a mobile version of Battlefield 3 will launch alongside the PC and console releases later this fall. While we still don’t have confirmation on that, we at least have some additional confirmation that Battlefield 3 is coming to iOS. EA confirmed this to Pocket Gamer, though left any other meaningful details out for the time being.

If Bad Company 2 for mobile [$2.99 / Free] was a solid indication of future direction for the mobile versions of DICE’s shooters, chances are BF3 for mobile will follow the events of its source material. BF3 proper is set in Iraq during 2014, just as an earthquake ravages the region. It follows the story of Henry ‘Black’ Blackburn and his five-man squad deployed in the region at the time of the quake.

In other EA upcoming game news, Bullfrog’s ridiculously good PC theme park simulation game, Theme Park, is also set for a release on iOS. No details have been offered quite yet, but I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility that this will just a straight-up port of the cutesy task manager.

We’ll give you more on these just as soon as we can.

    I'm going to keep saying this until blue in face but an ipad version of the original Populous also by Bullfrog would rock

      It wasn't much of an announcement and since then we've been able to get no details out of them.

    I bet it'll be a port of the DS port, which was quite fun. Hopefully they do a better job of porting the AI then Square Enix does.

    Will BF3 live up to the hype? That is the question.

    • Guest

      On PC/PS3/360? Yeah, probably. On iOS? There is no hype.

    Hopefully BF3 will be a lot better than BF2. If EA puts as much care and attention as they did on Dead Space. Should be a winner!

      You know, most people think of BF2 as the high point of the series.

      If they take the awesomeness of BF2, throw in some of the soldier customization from BF2142 and BFBC2 and deliver on their promise of huge maps that the jet planes wont cross in five seconds they will have a huge success in their hands

    Theme Park? Awesome news! Hopefully more Bullfrog titles will follow. :)

  • Hanerlend

    Theme Park rocks! :) I spent a ridiculous amount of time as a kid playing that game!

    • Posburn

      I played that game a lot too, but ... um ... as an adult. :-)  I definitely liked the bouncy castle ride.

      Fun game, but I hope they fix most of the bugs.

    Hopefully BF3 isn't as much of a disappointment as BF2 was.

    • Troll Slayer

       Obviously a troll... Using disappointment & BF2 in the same sentence. What a noob.

        BF2 on the iPhone. Not on consoles. BF2 on the iPhone was one of the worst FPS games in the appstore.

      • Troll Slayer

         Ah my bad. I retract my statement then.

        Have you played BF2 for iPhone?

      • Troll Slayer

         I have not. I couldn't imagine that being able to be remotely fun.

    Theme Park! SOLD! We're getting there -- now all we need is RollerCoaster Tycoon from who ever the hell owns distribution rights these days and my life will be complete.

    If we're getting Bullfrog games on iOS, then PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me there's a future in which an HD version of Syndicate ends up on the iPad!!!

    Yay!  Hopefully a new thing of Themepark and not a half-assed port.  I already told Gameloft to rip-off RCT because whoever the hell owns the rights to it isn't doing $h!#.
