This Year's 'Battlefield' Is Going Back to WWII

Report: Battlefield 2 Is Battlefield 2018, Set During WWII (Update)

It makes sense that World War 2 would follow a World War 1 setting, though I had quietly suspected EA might release something more akin to Battlefield: Hardline this year (ie, a spin-off). For this year's unannounced Battlefield installment they're sticking to the past. The game is Battlefield V. It was previously known as Battlefield 2 internally at EA.

Some sad news from today's rumor is that it sounds like Bad Company 3 is not getting developed soon.

Well, this isn't an official confirmation by any means, but a new source is now backing up the previous World War II reports.

Word is, EA and DICE made a decision to return to historical settings several years ago, but decided not to fire their big WWII bullet right away. It would be the first Battlefield game set in World War II since Battlefield 1943 came out in 2009. Of course, Battlefield 1 did very well so now EA's looking to maintain that momentum while transitioning to WWII.

More news: ZTE Tempo Go brings Android Oreo to people on a budget

This news comes on the heels of Call of Duty seeing success with Call of Duty: WWII past year, which was the best-selling installment in the franchise since Black Ops II released in 2012.

The next Battlefield will launch on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 in late 2018.

The next Battlefield game has yet to be officially announced. They knew they wanted to get away from the modern and near-future settings for a while, but it also didn't want to burn the WWII setting right away.

It seems like their sources haven't said anything new besides that, but we think that this will be more than enough to either disappoint or please most of you.
