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.

BFBC3 makes the most sense, even the vietnam/cold war era as they can hit a those "diversity" notes without treading into historical controversy people like to drum up. Black people in my WWI game?
You could easily microtransaction cosmetics in vietnam/cold war era type game as well.
I would have liked the series to have picked up where BFBC2 left off, the Russians invading the US and playing out a Red Dawn type scenario in US maps.
Eveyrhting you say makes sense other than the black people in WW1 quip. Though BF1 is far from accurate in how it potrays non-whites (And almost every other aspect of the war) in it's various theaters, it was a world war involving two of the greatest colonial powers of the time who were more than happy to conscript soldiers from their foreign possessions. Hundreds of thousands of 'colored' people from Africa and Asia fought on the western front and served support roles. That you think that it's forced diversity says more about the kind of media produced about the conflict and your lack of education than it does about the imaginary SJW crusade, which if it exists has reasonable grounds to try and correct the record.
France alone conscripted almost half a million African troops for the western front, a big part of the reason why Germany with it's superior population and birthrate compared to the allied forces lost.
The failure of the Triple Entente to reward it's possessions with some autonomy after their people bled on a continent not their own and where they were not seen as full 'humans' played a big role in the dismantling of those colonial empires.
