Battlefield 5 is World War 1 “Multiplayer Tactical Shooter”, Releasing on October 26th – Retailer
PS4, Xbox One and PC release stated.
EA has been rather coy about details regarding the next major Battlefield title aside from the fact that it will be releasing near 2016 end and returning to the series’ military shooter roots with DICE at the helm.
However, a placeholder listing on Swedish retail site World of Games (via NeoGAF) revealed that Battlefield 5 will be a “multiplayer tactical shooter” and set in World War 1. It will apparently be releasing on October 26th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, which pretty much puts previous gen out to pasture.
Take this with a grain of salt as usual, although it’s not far-fetched to believe that a new Battlefield will be out in Autumn seeing as how most games in the franchise have followed the same release cycle (save for Battlefield: Hardline which released in February 2015).
What are your thoughts on this, especially seeing as how World War 1 hasn’t been explored much in the FPS space? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned for more information.
