Battlefield series will come back in Autumn 2018

New Battlefield game is planned for the next year. Electronic Arts confirmed it during the meeting with investors.

Lately, DICE was busy Star Wars Battlefront 2 so it's no surprise the studio's next game is set for the next year. The developer is coming back to Battlefield series, which now is released once in two years. Electronic Arts wants to deliver a big FPS every year, therefore in 2017 we had new Battlefront, the next year will get Battlefield, then another Battlefront and so on.

DICE removes 40-player Operation mode from Battlefield 1

During the meeting with investors, Electronic Arts unveiled the publisher won't be releasing many games in 2018:

The core of our fiscal 2019 is a full slate of sports titles and their associated live services, plus new live services from Star Wars Battlefront II. We will add the next Battlefield game, and move into the action genre with Anthem.

We can expect new FIFA, Madden NFL as every year, maybe NHL and NBA Live. There is also Anthem and new Battlefield. Of course, we are interested in the latter and the path the series will take after great Battlefield 1. Will DICE use the Second World War or maybe they'll surprise us with a whole different setting? The war is most obvious choice as BF's biggest competitor chose the same setting in Call of Duty: WW2. Let's hope they won't go back to the modern times as we had enough of this for now.
