WW1 Battlefield 5 in October? [Updated]

German Swiss e-tailer World of Games now has a listing for Battlefield 5, which, if accurate, reveals a World War I setting for the next installment in the military shooter series. They call it a "Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter im 1. Weltkrieg," which in English is "Multiplayer tactical shooter in WW1," and list an October 26, 2016 release date. If that post ends up disappearing, NeoGAF has it preserved for posterity. Thanks PCGamesN, who point out that dates leaked in such a manner are often wrong, but the included of game details carry a certain degree of credibility. Update: While we expected this listing to be quickly removed, this remains at the end of the day, but the description has been edited to remove the reference to World War I, as it now just reads: "Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter."

It's already been corrected, it now just says "multiplayer tactical shooter".

A Battlefield game that spanned across all major time periods would be interesting but not very feasible from a technical standpoint, very few assets could be reused ballooning the install size so something like 100gb.

A strictly WW1 focused Battlefield though wouldn't exactly be a commercial success.

Those who wish to know more about WW1, I recommend the excellent book A World Undone or the excellent channel The Great War, which tells the weekly news of the war as it happened 100 years ago.

that looks like a cool youtube channel, thanks.
