Electronic Arts registers domains for Battlefield 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20

Battlefield 19

Call it defensive or call it long-term planning, but Electronic Arts has gone out and registered dot-com domains for Battlefield 13 all the way through Battlefield 20.

On May 2, EA registered each of the names through the brand protection agency Corporation Service Company (CSC), adding to its ever-growing collection of Battlefield-related web addresses which includes its crown-jewel Battlefield.com, a name that EA spent $80,000 USD to acquire.

As of today, EA now owns Battlefield.com, Battlefield2.comBattlefield9.com, and Battlefield13.com – Battlefield20.com.  Battlefield10.com – Battlefield12.com are owned by other parties, not associated with Electronic Arts.

By comparison to its biggest competitor, Activision, ModernWarfare8.com through ModernWarfare20.com and beyond, are not registered at the time of this story being published.

EA is expected to release Battlefield 4 this fall.

In late April, EA acquired BF4.com from its owner for $9,000 USD.

Talking about this story: Digital Spy, GameSpot, Joystiq, Blue’s News, Strategy Informer, EGMNOW, games.on.net, GameStar, Action Trip, Game Revolution, GameZone, Geek, Eurogamer.pt, Eurogamer.net, Tech2, IGN, Jeux Video, BeefJack, PC Gamer, PC Games Hardware, playm.de, Xbox 360 – the official Magazine, Softpedia, Ubergizmo, VG247 and Rock, Paper, Shotgun
