With a reveal coming "soon". EA is bringing its next-gen Battlefield
to PC and consoles later this year, brought to you by the biggest team ever on a Battlefield game. Which includes DICE, Criterion, DICE Los Angeles, and a separate tech team in Gothenburg.
What does this mean for the game, well Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager DICE, notes
that it will be a "a jaw-dropping experience" of "all-out military warfare" with "game-changing destruction". Yeah, we're excited to see what it's all about. As for the development Oskar adds that the team is currently playtesting the game and polishing and balancing it to make it the "best possible Battlefield game".
And with its release on track for Holiday 2021 odds are we'll be getting a reveal in the coming month or two.
Naturally this is mostly hype talk, but it sounds like DICE are pretty damn excited about what the next Battlefield is all about. Recent rumours have pointed to a modern setting, with weather effects like storms. And with the game designed with next-gen consoles in mind it will no doubt be the most impressive looking entry in the series to date.
The Battlefield news doesn't stop there though as DICE confirms its working with Industrial Toys to bring Battlefield to smart phones and tablets in 2022. A standalone entry that has come together "after years of prototyping" designed and built from the ground-up for mobile. This is also currently being tested and played internally within EA and will most likely be revealed alongside Battlefield 6 or whatever the next entry proper ends up being called.
