New Battlefield Game Due to Launch in 2021, Confirms EA

Battlefield's next installment promises to bring to the franchise a "true next-gen vision."

Having wrapped up support for Star Wars: Battlefront 2, DICE has been working on a new Battlefield game, something we’ve known for some time. Released in 2018, the last game in the first-person shooter franchise, Battlefield V, saw frequent post-launch updates until this summer.

Fans have been awaiting news of the next installment for some time,  and EA has finally given us a better idea of what we can expect and when we’ll be able to see more of the game. 

EA provided a brief look at a next-gen tech demo of the upcoming Battlefield game at EA Play 2020, but there wasn’t much of anything tangible to the reveal.

Speaking during EA’s latest earnings call, CEO Andrew Wilson promised that this currently untitled sequel would be emblematic of the developer’s “next-gen vision for the franchise.” Wilson said that the anticipated release date of the game is Holiday 2021 and that more news will be shared in the next few months.  

DICE is creating our next Battlefield game with never before seen scale. The technical advancements of the new consoles are allowing the team to deliver a true next-gen vision for the franchise. We have hands-on testing underway internally, and the team’s been getting very positive feedback on the game as we’ve begun to engage our community.

The next Battlefield is set to launch in Holiday 2021, we’re excited to share a lot more about the game in the spring.”

Talking further about this, Wilson also confirmed that they’ve rallied the entire DICE studio around Battlefield, giving the team an extra year of development to realize their ambitious goal. Stay tuned to GameSkinny as we find out more.
