Yer I head that some time ago apparently a leak from EA China saying
Lasgana: Coming October 23rd, 2013
Lasgana: development just started, expected to be done in 1 yr [Nirolak's Note: Since this is the one likely to elicit the most "this is fake" notes, I feel I should elaborate. Given some later points (like already have an internal demo), this seems to refer to EA's normal two year development cycle of a one year pre-production cycle with ~30-40 people and then ballooning up to 150-300 people to make the game after most things are prototyped and planned out. Visceral, BioWare, and a fair number of publishers outside EA also operate this way since it allows you to have multiple projects without cyclical layoffs due to scaling down in pre-production and scaling up in production. For example, during the downtime between Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3, DICE's spare staff worked on making Medal of Honor's multiplayer and helping to build Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit. As to what the bulk of DICE's staff worked on prior to this going into production, it's probably either a second project or, once again, other EA games.]

According to another EA survey, Battlefield 4 will be getting "BattlePacks" and other features.
MAY 11TH, 2013 IN MAY 11TH, 2013 IN RUMORS RUMORS
The latest round of Battlefield 4 rumors suggest brand new features in the game. According to an EA survey description of Battlefield 4 (a survey which has been taken down), the game will be featuring more weapons, vehicles, and classes compared to BF3. A few weeks ago, another Battlefield 4 survey hinted at BF3 map remakes for the new game, and even a Dino mode.
In addition, there will be something called “BattlePacks”, which are awarded to players as they play. BattlePacks include new weapons, accessories, player skins, and more. If true, we imagine EA will be selling these BattlePacks as DLC as well.
The survey also mentions more destructible environments and “dynamic battlefields”. An example describes how players can “destroy a dam and flood an entire area”, or “cut the power to a building for a surprise attack on the enemy”. Of course, these features could be part of the singleplayer campaign.
There’s also mention how the new Frostbite 3 game engine will make Battlefield 4 “the most detailed and realistic” game in the series.
Finally, the survey mentions Battlefield 4 naval warfare, which we have heard a lot about ever since the first teaser was revealed. According to the description, there will be jet skis, RHIB boats, amphibious vehicles, and more.
The EA survey has since been taken down —we’re trying to verify this information.
