Battlefield V Cancelling 5v5 Mode

An Update on Battlefield V with Ryan McArthur has a status report on Battlefield V, discussing the latest goings-on in the military shooter sequel. This includes details on what DICE is fixing in an upcoming version 4.4 patch, map update plans, and their goal of being more communicative and transparent going forward. In that vein, Ryan announces they are cancelling development of their five-versus-five competitive mode, offering the following explanation for the change in direction:
The added focus on improving the quality of the experience and adding more of the content you want has led us to step back from our original plans to offer a competitive 5v5 mode. Not creating this mode was a tough decision, but vital for us to more quickly reach our bug-crushing and content goals. However, we will still pursue building a competitive gaming experience in Battlefield™. We know that there’s already an existing competitive scene in our community, and we’re helping build features to support these communities. We want to work more closely with our players to help improve the tools that they have available to shape their play experience. This way, we can better support the places where competitive Battlefield V play already exists.

This change in focus allows us to better deliver on our promise of new content that we know our players will love, as well as providing new ways to enjoy some of our more intense existing modes.

They just took too long.
If you want a competitive/pro aspect to the game you better launch with it or have it ready within 2 months of launch.

I uninstalled BFV long ago, but what the hell is with this focus on small team games?

Battlefield should be all about 20vs20 or more, for any sort of 'competitive' mode. I'd love to see organized clans playing 32vs32, but everybody wants to get rich playing video games now, and that's most likely financially unviable.

Oh well, back contemplating life without oxygen on Earth, due to no more rainforest or phytoplankton!

They cancelled it because they would need to have ten people still playing the game on a platform for the mode to work, and they couldn't find a fix for that issue.
ouch

Wow. Impressive to see the devs won over the sales guys this time.

Sales people always like to forget that bugs are a thing.

you know how many times, during the last 3 games they have said that !?


It is been hard to believe anything these guys say for so long now - wash,rinse,repeat.... Tons of actual players from the community tried to help year after year, but nothing was listened to.

In their continual effort to become C.O.D they alienated a large portion of what made Battlefield a battlefield game , but they just don't want to hear it...

it's a real shame ...

BF is poorly suited to esports anyway and they were too focused on adding modes to BF V instead of content. Playing catch up now is fruitless, the player base moved on.

This isn't the first time they tried 5v5.

The last time it was called incursion mode, believe it was for bf4.

It never made it out of alpha/beta. But they did open it up for closed invites.

They probably don't want to anchor their flagship competitive mode to the PR disaster that was BFV. Save it for the next one, when all the ducks are in a row.

I played and championed DICE L.A's Incursions mode in BF1. It was good, really really good. It just need the right vehicle to shine. 5v5 Battlefield is where I cut my teeth competitively. There is an answer to the 5v5 FPS scene where you don't have one life to make a difference, it's conquest small, 3 flags, maybe 1 vehicle. And it's fun as balls.
