UPDATED: Is This A Leaked Screenshot Of Battlefield 3?

Hey, are you crouching or are you really that small?
Battlefield 3 Blog believes it might just have the first, totally unofficial image of the game, which doesn't even have a release date yet. The image (below) reportedly comes from a Swedish fellow who calls himself "Doe," who snapped a quick one at the home of a DICE developer, obviously off a TV or a monitor.
To be crystal clear: this is in no way an official screenshot of the game and the source here is suspect to boot. However, the shot does look legit. The soldiers, the atmosphere, and the guns look very Battlefield-esque, and as the BF3 Blog notes, the HUD elements take specific cues from various BF games, most notably Battlefield 2.
Unfortunately, we won't know if this image is real or not until DICE actually tosses out the first screen of the game, which might take a while. Feel free to take this shot with a grain of salt, or salivate with the rest of us. Whatever makes you happy!
UPDATE: No, this is not a leaked screenshot of Battlefield 3. It's a fake created from this Battlefield: Bad Company 2 wallpaper. Oh, Internet.
