Battlefield 5 Release Date, Rumors and What To Expect


Recommended Posts

Battlefield 5 is on its way, and it’s being developed right now, as we speak. We also know a surprising bit about this title, as well as what to expect from it when it is eventually revealed later this year.


First and foremost, we know for certain that the game will be returning to its military-themed roots, following last year’s rather awkward cops-and-robbers theme. The last military-themed Battlefield was Battlefield 4, which came out all the way back in 2013. Being a mainline Battlefield game, Battlefield 5 will be developed by DICE, the original Swedish developer of the franchise, fresh off the heels of Star Wars Battlefront.


Secondly, Battlefield 5 is coming out later this year, targeting a Holiday 2016 release. According to EA CEO Andrew Wilson, the game will be released in Quarter 3 of the 2017 fiscal year, and Quarter 3 ends in December. This lines up well with previous mainline Battlefield releases, which have also targeted a similar release window.


As for when we’re getting an official confirmation of the game itself: no sooner than March, seeing as Battlefield Hardline is still getting DLC, with the next and final DLC pack, Betrayal, releasing in March. It would be rather sensible to release a brief teaser after Betrayal comes out, followed by a more extended showing at E3 2016, and then, finally, a release later this year.


My bet... no communication till Games Developers Conference March 14-18. This conference is historically where we have seen the first info/trailers from the recent BF games (3/4). I would assume they are on hold with CTE till the announcement of BF5 at the GDC.

Battlefield 5’ updates: DICE hires new team to ‘push visual quality to the next level’

Godfrey Barasa | Feb 23, 2016 04:53 AM EST


"Battlefield 5" developer company, DICE, has already teased that it wants to improve the standards of the game in terms of graphics and animation quality.


It is now evident that DICE is working hard to achieve the goals, especially after it placed a new advert on its official website for an addition to the development team. The company has announced to hire a senior concept artist and among the responsibilities, he will be charged with pushing visual quality to the next level on an unannounced "AAA title."  


Although DICE is not specific on the particular game this senior concept artist is being hired for, the fact that it is for an unannounced AAA title appears to point towards "Battlefield," according to Gaming Bolt. In case this is true, it is likely that the game will look as good as any fans have seen in the genre. Every game that has been released since the launch of PS4 and Xbox One has looked better than the previous and DICE seems focused on getting better moving forward.


There are rumors that the company is planning to build game settings similar to some of the locations in Japan. Fans will have to wait to see what "Battlefield 5" has in store, but it is evident that the company is working on something different. However, fans should be excited since DICE has already begun working on the next title and it is soliciting for personnel for elements that need extra help.


"Battlefield 5" is slated for a release within the third quarter of this year. Game publisher Electronic Arts already sent a press release outlining some of the known facts about the franchise and its games. Reportedly, upcoming games will follow the last entry in the franchise - "Battlefield Hardline."


"Battlefield 5" will be released for PS4 and Xbox One, although fans should expect the developer company to unveil more information concerning the release during E3 2016.
