EA has hinted at the new Battlefield game, due out this year, in an earnings call, revealing some information about the game.
The new Battlefield was revealed back in March, via a number of leaks. Now, EA has shed some light on the game.
EA CEO Andrew Wilson revealed:
“With our next Battlefield game, the team at DICE is bringing the intensity of combat to life in new and unexpected ways. Every battle is unique, and every mode brings its own challenges–from the way you interact with the environment around you, to compelling single-player stories, to the next level of large-scale multiplayer that spans across multiple maps and modes.”
The upcoming game is rumoured to take place in WWII, and Wilson went on further to say that it will learn some lessons from the success of Battlefield 1:
“This will be a deep and fully featured shooter and ongoing service that will evolve with major new experiences for our community, beginning right from launch. Building on the success of Battlefield 1 and taking inspiration from DICE’s core DNA, this new game will advance the state of the art for the franchise, while still delivering the signature gameplay and Battlefield moments that have captivated and grown our global community.”
Wilson also on the multiplayer, saying:
“All of the things that a Battlefield fan would expect out of a multiplayer game from DICE in the Battlefield universe will be there, while additional innovations in how we’re thinking about the future of multiplayer in first-person shooters will also be there, both at launch and over time as part of a live service.”
We will likely hear more conclusive info on the new game at this year’s E3.
