With Battlefield Hardline still on the horizon, dropping St. Patrick’s Day of next year, EA would naturally be tight lipped about future Battlefield installments we’re already anxious to learn more about.
Though not specific on what the next game will be called, we recently discovered that the successor to Battlefield Hardline will return to the series’ military-style roots, according to EA CFO, Blake Jorgensen.
It will be “a return to a Battlefield military-style game; more to come on that,” said EA CFO Blake Jorgensen, as reported by GameSpot.
When should you expect to see the next Battlefield game? Last month, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said in a conference call to investors that “our next Battlefield experience is planned for launch in Q3FY17” which is business lingo for October-December 2016. He continued by saying that “we want to give Battlefield 4 and Battlefield: Hardline players more time to enjoy these games and immerse themselves in a game, the live service, and the community.”
With modern military shooters becoming over-saturated in today’s current market, it will be interesting to see where EA and developer Digital Illusions C.E. will take the franchise. Will it head back to World War 2, Vietnam, or will the nods towards Battlefield: 2142 in Battlefield 4’s latest expansion Final Stand be the precursor for the long awaited sequel to the futuristic installment of the franchise?
