I think BF4 being developed already wouldn't be a big deal if it was something different, like 2143 or something. But starting a sequel this soon, while there's still lots of problems in BF3, not to mention all the unreleased DLC? BF4 shouldn't be on their radar yet until they finish BF3.
Don't get me wrong, I love BF3. But it's still got plenty of issues that need attention.

And if you know the CS community, you know that's how it has to be. If they changed CS:GO a lot from the previous games, very few of the CS fans will even acknowledge the game. Many 1.6 fans can't stand Source, and vice versa. And considering how similar the games are, despite being on completely different game engines and it causes such a rift in the community? If CS:GO was terribly different, it wouldn't attract the old school CS fans and all the old CS pros like Valve wants. They are hoping to get CS back into the competitive gaming scene, with CS:GO, which they couldn't do if the game was very different. It needs to be the same core game. Otherwise, it's not Counter-Strike, it should be a new IP.
