New Battlefield This Year

After lots of rumor and speculation, post on the Battlefield Website discusses the future of Battlefield, saying two installments in the military shooter series are in development, one for PC and consoles, and the other for mobile. Word is the PC and console game boasts "the biggest Battlefield development team ever," and it is expected for release this holiday season. Otherwise this is pretty general for now, but it includes the promise of a reveal "soon™." Here's what DICE General Manager Oskar Gabrielson has to say about "the return of all-out warfare" in the PC/console edition:
2021 is an exciting time for us here at DICE. Working with more world-class development studios within Electronic Arts, we have our biggest team ever on a Battlefield game for console and PC. Our friends at Criterion and DICE LA are working with us on our shared vision for the game, while the team in Gothenburg is taking technology in the game to the next level. Together, we are creating a jaw-dropping experience for you to enjoy later in 2021.

We’re in daily playtesting mode right now: polishing, balancing, and making the best possible Battlefield game we can. I can tell you it is a bold step. It has everything we love about Battlefield – and takes all of it to the next level. Epic scale. All-out military warfare. Crazy, unexpected moments. Game-changing destruction. Massive battles, packed with more players and mayhem than ever before. All brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs.
