Following up with more clarification, he confirmed that he wasn't hinting at a remaster and specifically noted the setting and direction.

Originally released in 2011 (and competing with Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3), Battlefield 3 offered a great multiplayer suite alongside a disappointing single-player campaign.

At the time, it offered almost unmatched visuals, taking place in the present day.

Needless to say, we'd recommend taking this with a hefty handful of salt, but it's not outside of the realms of possibility. 2013's Battlefield 4 (a launch title for PS4 and Xbox One) was also set in a contemporary period, while 2016's Battlefield 1 returned to WW1 and Battlefield V took us back to WW2.
