Battlefield 5 Coming In 2016?
EA has revealed, during its latest investor call, that there will be a Battlefield game coming in 2016. Unlike Call of Duty, Battlefield’s not traditionally been an annualised franchise, so it wasn’t a given that we would be getting a new Battlefield game that soon.
“What we’ve said is that our intention over the next couple of years is to have a first-person shooter as one of the core titles,” said EA’s Blake Jorgensen. “This year, obviously, it’s Star Wars Battlefront. Next year, it’s another Battlefield title.”
Battlefield Hardline from Visceral plugged the gap after DICE’s last Battlefield game, Battlefield 4, so it seems likely that DICE will be at the helm again for 2016’s Battlefield. If that is the case, it is likely that it will be Battlefield 5.
