As per some weapon design images…
There have been quite a few reports in recent weeks that the next Battlefield, which EA have confirmed will launch in October of 2018, will be set during the Second World War. And now there seems to be more possible evidence to suggest the same. This comes in form of an artist who has worked for DICE in the past, and some weapon design concept art they have drawn up.
One former DICE employee, Peter Olofsson Hermanrud, who now works for Bungie, posted a portfolio on ArtStation about a year ago, portraying several weapons that had nothing to do either with Battlefield 1, or its World War I setting. One such weapon was PPSh-41, which, apparently, was used quite commonly during the Second World War.
None of this is official confirmation that the next Battlefield will take place during WW2 era so take this report with a grain of salt. EA are going to reveal more proper details on Battlefield 2018 soon enough, so stay tuned to GamingBolt for continued coverage on the same.
