Next Battlefield Game To Be Set During WW2

Battlefield V Announcment

It’s been nearly 16 years since a mainline Battlefield was set in WW2, (not counting 2009’s Battlefield 1942), however, that’s where EA and DICE will be taking us for the next installment in the series – Battlefield V!

A recent report by Venture Beat has confirmed that a leaked image of a title screen that’s being circulated is the real deal.

The report also claims that the choice to return to a WW2 setting was decided many years ago potentially at a time when the futuristic setting of rival series Call of Duty was being heavily criticised.

Based on the information in the report it also seems that EA and DICE wanted to prepare for a worse case scenario of Battlefield 1 being poorly received by players and critics. Of course, this is the complete opposite of what ended up happening. Battlefield 1 was one of the best selling games of 2017 and continues to engage players thanks to the regular DLC being developed.

Based on EA’s earnings report earlier this year we can expect this title to be available in October and if it’s anywhere near as good as Battlefield 1 you can be sure it’ll be one of the most requested Christmas gifts in 2018.

It’s great to see the way the Battlefield series is continuing to develop and we’re particularly excited to see how the game looks on Xbox One X. You can see below just how far the graphics have come.

 

We’ll be sure to keep Xbox One UK readers updated as and when more Battlefield V news arrives.
