Battlefield 3 to have support for Windows XP or not?

Will the next game in the Battlefield franchise, "Battlefield 3" would have support for Windows XP or not?. Well according to the indept analysis done by us about the new Frostbite 2.0 engine the answer to above question is a "BIG NO".

Battlefield 3

Frostbite 2.0 engine doesn't have any mentioning of Window XP and DirectX 9 in any of the technical specification which apparently made us asked this question to us.

And then after analysis we came across this tweet from Johan Andersson, DICE developer:

"Frostbite 2 is primarily developed for DX11. XP & DX9 is _not_ supported, 64-bit OS is recommended. Lots of time to upgrade if you havent!"

There isn't any official announcement that Battlefield 3 won't have support for Windows XP however small this like these does points out something big.

Earlier this month we got a words from EA CEO John Riccitiello regarding the release window for the game, check it out here what he said.
