EA has already stated it's not true. You can read a thread over on their forums, which was closed because it was a pure rumor.
This game is being released at it's normal release, which is typical of EA, and the fans get the shaft again.
For the record, EA developed the new Medal of Honor, and it's being shunned. The reviews have been terrible, and IGN scored it a 6/10, which is extremely low compared to other current day FPS'.
