Hoping for BF2143. It would be nice if there was a bot mode so I could play offline or coop vs. bots with my fam. Not holding my breath tho.

Since the VU (venice unleashed) mod tools for BF3 were released, a modder has released a bot mode for BF3, here is the link if interested...

Can't wait to see what they do with next gen hardware. If there is one thing about these Battlefield games, they always had some kind of jaw drop moment in them graphically. Each one for it's time. I recall the aircraft carrier mission in one of the Battlefields was mind blowing when you walk out and see the ocean.

Another one although might be the same was when the jeep or something went over into the water and you're trying to get out with your team. My memory is hazy as it's been awhile since I've touched these games but I'll never forget the ORIGINAL Battlefield 1942

JackFrags had a video concept a while back saying he hopes the next game is just called: "Battlefield" and they just keep that one game going for decades. ie. new eras every couple years, but the same base game so everyone doesn't have to keep jumping ship every title release.

I don't know how they'd monetize it, but it's a great idea. Not too dissimilar to what CoD seem to be doing with "Warzone".

Modern or Future I'll be very happy, or Vietnam at the earliest, as long as I get my M16. Very happy that we're done with the great wars era. While I really like the aesthetic, I can't stand the weapons, too much compromise from one class to the next. I always feel like I'm picking "long range" at the deploy menu, and then if I see an enemy at close range, I'm 100% dead. It's pretty fucking stupid IMO.

Please be actually "epic" in scope and feel. Something like 128 vs 128, land and air vehicles, mechs, classes, and there are unlocks that go for all 3 maps, then reset (like old Wolf:ET), but people can still get their persistent unlocks.

There's a whole niche of this market that needs to be taken!

Sorry but 128 vs 128 is a cluster fuck. It's when ya get the 32v or lower that you really see squad gameplay and tactics shine through. Personally I love 16v16 so ya have 4 squads per side.

I really, really want this to return to it's roots of actual great gameplay...... but come on....
It is really hard to believe after the last 2 duds that anyone over there is all of a sudden going to be great again.

Especially since these COD the past few years are just so awful too.... in terms of small maps overall , hackers galore, reduced server tick rates,....etc..

EA probably has no ballz to do something like BF4 again because of China. That's mean EA also won't be doing Korean War because of China too. I am guessing it will be BF Vietnam redo + battleroyal

Am I the only one that thing more than 64 players is not needed?
Hopefully they learned from their BFV mistakes and will actually make a BF game rather than a Frankenstein nightmare of copied features from other games, designed by a committee of suits.
Also hoping they will NOT listen to all the utube "game changers" that steered the game last in the wrong direction, as well as the tail-end of BF1.
Edit: Oh crap, the article is sourced from one of those aforementioned dreaded "game changers" tweets, ugh.

That would be really cool, but this is definitely the wrong series for that to happen in. They've been trending downwards in the number of total vehicles per team as it is, the past few games. They might even drop below 64 vs 64 for this next game, even on PC.

Battlefield kinda peaked with BF4.

The amount of damage done to the US in the first week alone has to have China and Russia laughing at us.

Nah, they've known for a while, they just don't want to tell people yet because reasons. Probably a few more sales cycles they want to feature the older one in, before they start hyping up a new one.

Same here. Here's hoping that's what it will be.

BF4 finally combined the awesome ground combat of 3 with very solid marriage of vehicles (BF3 wasn't bad but had it's issues). I just hope they keep it modern (or like in the previous post go to 2143)
