With DICE set to release the last content drop for Battlefield 5 this June,possibly the most important piece of content in it is a new map called “Libya.” For those wondering, the Battlefield 5 June map will be for large battles, as DICE has confirmed that this upcoming map is made for 64-player matches!
This was confirmed by DICE Community Manager Adam Freeman over on the Battlefield 5 subreddit where a fan asked whether the Battlefield 5 June map will be for 64 players or not.
If that’s not enough large-scale warfare for you, it seems that the Provence map might be getting a 64-player version in the June update as well! This was unearthed by reliable Battlefield dataminer temporyal.
A 64 players version of "Provence" might be coming in June. Potential hints for a rework of the map in #BattlefieldV Patch 6.6:
🇫🇷 "MP_ProvCQ" & "MP_ProvBT"
It's certainly not a stretch to assume that CQ and BT represent Conquest and Breakthrough. No news about Lofoten Islands. pic.twitter.com/ZnUZ9KttiT

There’s no guarantee that Provence will get a 64-player map version, but the upcoming new map should scratch that large scale warfare itch for most Battlefield 5 players.
For now, there’s no specific release date for the June Battlefield 5 patch, but once we know when it’s out, we’ll be sure to let our readers know. We should get the patch notes ahead of the actual patch’s deployment as is the norm with DICE.
