A YouTuber named AlmightyDaq is attracting attention with a new video called
Battlefield 2018 Leaked
Insider information. According to this, the next installment in the military
shooter series will be Battlefield: Bad Company 3. Believing this seems like a
stretch at first, since this is only the third video posted to
in over a year. But this carries some extra credibility since one of the
previous videos there is called
Battlefield 2016 Leaked Insider information, which turned out to be a
accurate prediction of DICE's plans for Battlefield 1.
VG247 offers this summary of details from the video:
Now, he claims
he has insider information about DICEís next Battlefield, which heís confident
is going to be Battlefield: Bad Company 3. According to his source, the game is
going to take place in the mid and post-Vietnam War era, up to the Cold War.
Thereís going to be a campaign, with missions taking place throughout these
conflicts, though he adds itís not going to be historically accurate. The choice
of era could mean that the lovable squad from the first two games may not
return, though he didnít have anything to say about them.
Multiplayer will bring back the focus on tighter maps, compared to Battlefield 1
and 4ís all-out war themes with larger maps. Conquest, Rush, Operations, and
even smaller modes like TDM ,and Domination are all returning.
The choice of the era will naturally affect the weapon roster, which, according
to his source, will also feature Battlefield 4 levels of customisation. Vehicles
include tanks, LAVs, helicopters.
Thereís going to be at least one new mode, which he says is similar to Squad
Obliteration from Battlefield 4, supporting ten players in 5v5. Maps will be
comparable in size to Bad Company 2 maps like Harvest Day, Oasis, and Grand
Bazaar from Battlefield 3. In short, small-to-medium maps offering condensed
The four main classes in Assault, Engineer, Support, and Recon are all
returning. AlmightyDaq does say that Bad Company 2 may bring back the Battlepack
system, but thereís no plan to add microtransactions, though he says the
backlash Star Wars: Battlefront 2 received factored into this.
