Rumor: Next Battlefield a "Hero Shooter"

Battlefield rumormeister Tom Henderson tweets that his understanding is the next Battlefield will be more of a hero shooter:
The next Battlefield title is scoped as a hero shooter of sorts - It's not a removal of specialists, but an enhancement of them.

#Battlefield2042 has always been intended to be a stepping stone to a "hero shooter" with a Battle Royale - It was just executed poorly.

It should be said to take with a grain of salt, of course, but given that I heard about this stuff last week and with all of the announcements the past couple of days, it makes perfect sense.

BF 2042 did change direction early on, but I can't see them changing it?

Ugh, are they just trying to kill the franchise or something? There are plenty of shitty "Hero Shooters," BR or otherwise, that I avoid as it is. Stop messing up Battlefield.

I feel bad for DICE. I seriously doubt they would want to go this direction for the franchise. EA has proven time and time again they interfere in the development of games under their umbrella and force MTX into games and etc etc. I also feel like EA pushed DICE to put out 2042 months before it was ready but another delay would look bad and EA was like "just put it out and fix it after like always!" which fits their MO.
