During EA’s earnings call today, the publisher confirmed that the as-of-yet-untitled Battlefield due for this year will be released in October 2018, which isn’t surprising given the game has maintained its release schedule for the past few years.
In the same call, EA confirmed that BioWare’s ambitious Anthem is indeed getting delayed to “early 2019,” which we’ve previously reported on too. However, the publisher states that the reason it’s delaying the game isn’t due to development being behind schedule, but rather, to give Anthem more attention if it came out in a “quieter quarter.”

Regarding Battlefield 2018, while there’s nothing concrete out there yet, there’s a lot of rumors floating around now, which we’ve compiled, and is a must-read if you’re a Battlefield fan.
Surprised at the Battlefield 2018 release date confirmation for October? I know I’m not. I’m not surprised at Anthem being pushed back, either, and I doubt anyone else is at this point.
Once EA releases more nuggets during its earnings call, we’ll post it up on the site so stay tuned.
