Battlefield 1915?

Battlefield 5 shows up on German retailer site, reportedly set in World War 1




Ben Barrett


Well, this is a turn up. Battlefield 5 has been spotted on German online retailer World of Games, listed for release in October. Most notable is the single line of description that reads "Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter im 1. Weltkrieg" - in English, a World War 1 tactical shooter. While generally release dates listed in this manner are inaccurate estimations made by the company itself, details rarely are, and may indicate an upcoming announcement.




You can see the listing here while it lasts, and larger versions of the images over on NeoGAF, as well as the original finding on Twitter. While another DICE-made entry in the Battlefield series has been assumed to be on the way, this is the first we've seen of it outside that. The return to the past has been much requested, though the choice of World War 1 is odd for various reasons - not only is WW2 more common, but it's easier to gamify, many already have the knowledge required to understand its various theatres and, frankly, it's just more interesting.


Still, trench warfare with modern game design principles and graphics has proven popular recently with the likes of Verdun, and early-1900s warfare in general with Battalion 1944. It's also worth noting that this listing for Battlefield 5 makes no mention of the previous generation of consoles - all new tech, all the time. That seems like the correct decision to me, the old generation should be left behind even if their install base is larger - the graphical improvements alone make switching over worth it.


What would you think of a WW1 Battlefield? Do you prefer the day-after-tomorrow future-tech that currently dominates the larger FPS franchises, or do you think there's riper opportunities elsewhere?

Remember until DICE says otherwise, this is a rumor. Oh October 26, 2016 is the now rumored release date.

This is my thoughts...


First DICE gave us the BJ-2 knife. This is the knife that was from BF2142


Next the end game DLC which gave us the prototype hover tanks, the rail gun, plus on some maps we can see titan ships being built, walkers being built all from 2142.


Look around some of the maps and you will see 2142 on crates.


My guess is post Bf4 to Pre2142 time frame.

Roll on March so all the speculation about when it will be set, is over (hopefully). It was cool at first, thinking about which direction they could go with it, and the variations to BF4 that we would like to see.


I am just ready to know what it is now.............. so we can start speculating again about what will/won't be included/implemented :tongue: .

Pretty much everything I have said. There is a few spots that suggests why. Still no news and it is March.


Good news is, Hardline has their patch today!Star Wars Battleffront was updated last week. So DICE LA should be free to work on next project what ever that will be. CTE is completely dead. The reddit is even getting slow these days. The 2 Night maps have been done for months but no new patch to test.


PLEASE 2143!!!
