While the next Call of Duty (Modern Warfare's reboot) is imminent, there's precious little from the next game in its hotly-contested rival franchise, Battlefield.
Following on from the current-gen launch title Battlefield 4, Battlefield 1 was a brave but lucrative gamble from EA, going back to a classic wartime themed combat while Activision was doing its best Titanfall impersonation with various space-age themed Call of Duty sequels.
The market had grown bloated with stagnation, full of sci-fi inspired shooters that audiences were tired of. EA (either by having their finger on the pulse of the community or sheer luck) gave players a more dependable first-person shooter experience by going back to the past.
Battlefield 1’s all-round success lead to a Holiday release of Battlefield V, but it was swimming against the tide from the beginning, with fans striking back against the reveal trailer for a myriad of reasons. This lukewarm reception meant that official news on Battlefield 6 has been few and far between, despite selling over seven million copies.
Fans are clawing for Bad Company 3, and while that could be a possibility, we’re looking at where the next potential setting for EA’s blockbuster franchise could be in the next instalment.
