The next Battlefield game is called Battlefield V, according to sources speaking with VentureBeat. The game will return to World War II for the first time since Battlefield 1943 released in 2009.

 

According to the sources, Electronic Arts will reveal the game soon and release it before the end of the year. EA had previously stated it planned to release a new Battlefield game in October, however, it wasn't known what the setting of the game was.

I already didn't like the Battlefield 1 name, but now it'll just mess things up. :-P

The naming kind of makes sense... kind of. Originally there was Battlefield 2, 3, and 4 so it made sense to name the last game 1 since it matched up with WWI and they had skipped that number anyway. And it works to name this game 5 as the next entry in the series. I think they went with the roman numeral since it isn't a direct sequel to the modern games (2/3/4).

If true then COD and Battlefield REALLY need to stop copying each other. It's getting pretty ridiculous.


jason1637 (on 01 March 2018)

This game was in development before CoD WW2 was revealed. CoD just got their game out first because of the dev cycle.

Battlefield V: Loot box Edition.


bananaking21 (on 02 March 2018)

Awesome. Battlefield 1 was amazing and I loved it's setting. I hope this is true as I don't want a modern battlefield.


Jigsawx1 (on 02 March 2018)

ROCKY223 (on 02 March 2018)

Can i play as Franklin, Trevor and Michael?


deskpro2k3 (on 02 March 2018)

another WW2 game?


Azzanation (on 02 March 2018)

I am not surprised at this, especially after CoD received a great reception.


Jigsawx1 (on 02 March 2018)

The problem with cod wwII for me was that it played like a futuristic cod and that there where no progress in physics or game modes

First they make a Battlefield game set on WWI and call it Battlefield One, but now they're making one set on WWII and calling it Battlefield V? So this new game is part of the main series but One is not?


Bristow9091 (on 01 March 2018)

... I miss Battlefield 1943. And while I'm at it, I also miss Battlefield Heroes too, that was such a fun game!


LuccaCardoso1 (on 01 March 2018)

Wow, a popular FPS franchise going back to its WWII roots! Not like I've seen that happen few months ago...


AlfredoTurkey (on 02 March 2018)

And we can all see what is happening here. They all start out in WW1 and WW2, progress to the point where you're futuristic idiots with jetpacks, gamers complain, then they go back and start again etc.


Errorist76 (on 04 March 2018)

Has it crossed anyone‘s mind, that the V in Battlefield V stands for Victory?! Illuminati confirmed


LMU Uncle Alfred (on 02 March 2018)

Battlefield:Call of Duty.


KeithC1990 (on 02 March 2018)

Bad decision in my opinion, we don't need another old styled world war game, both Battlefield and Call of Duty have done one, I think both companies are missing the point. Everyone over the last few years has been asking for "boots on the ground" nobody was asking necessarily for that to mean we only want to play WW1 and WW2 games. Going to skip this one for sure..
