During its financial investors conference call for Q2 2015 Electronic Arts just announced the release windows for the next mainline Battlefield and for Star Wars: Battlefront.
really? BF5? how about you take your goddamn time on making battlefront..
They are. That's why BF5 will be released in 2016 and SW in 2015.
EA...take their time? Right.... Seriously, the fact at last e3 they had next to nothing to show for Battlefront, and are releasing only a year and a half later shows they are rushing it. The game will have just under/over a 2 year dev cycle. That is not enough time to tackle something like Battlefront.
Thats no taking their time at all... I already have feeling that BF5 will be horrrible seeing how they can't even get 4 to work which most likely means SW will run like crap too since Dice is the only company out there that can't code on an engine that they made themselves.
@dudebro, How about those games that get announced only 6 months before release??? Cod, or Ac come to mind. They obviously had more than 6 months to make thise games. Or Bloodborne, which would be releasing 8 months after release. The game was announced during e3 2013. Who knows how long they were working on it before then
@Martin, considering they announced Battlefront while they were still in the process of getting Battlefield 4 ready for release (same company making both, Dice), they have probably been working on this for 1 1/2 years or so. Plus, Battlefield 3 had a 3-4 year development cycle and still came out broken, so what do you think Battlefront will be like at launch?
And when will BF5 be developed? In one year?
Wish that was true. but unfortunately EA want their money and therefore, we get rushed broken games.
@Martin Ea didn't get the license for star wars until mid year of 2013 year. Dice was not working on it before then, which is why the reveal was so little and cgi.
BF5 was in the making as soon as BF4 went gold. When public information becomes available is NOT when developers decide to start their next project. Here's to hoping the next BF is Bad Company 3!
Battlefield needs a break. Holiday 2017 or spring 2018
THEY NEVER, NEVER mention anything about BF5!! (God Lord some people are clueless)... they just said, "the next Battlefield game".. Hell, it could be 2143.. people need to calm and get facts straight, including the stupid a$% misleading title of this article..
It's EA, they will make BF5 before making a game that people actually want.
Might want to chill. You're raging like someone bit you over calling it Battlefield 5 instead of next Battlefield (which, mind you, is explained in the article). The only one that needs to calm down here is you.
Relax your tits
I feel like it's more likely they'll make Bad Company 3 before they rush out Battlefield 5. At least I would hope so, because the Bad Company series really deserves another installment and it'd be great timing. Battlefield Hardline - March 2015 Star Wars Battlefront - Holiday 2015 (Possible unannounced game early 2016?) Battlefield Bad Company 3 - Holiday 2016 I'd be one happy camper personally.
If people haven't learned their lesson with BF3 and 4, then they're probably going to get burned with BF5 as well. If only people had some self control.
Only a year away for Star Wars? They have showed nothing of it yet and its only a year away from planned release schedule? Woah, that's not sounding too good... I really, really, really want that game to be good.
BF5 day one will come with yet another BF4 patch. I suggest they fix BF4 then just give us BF5 as DLC for like $25
I'll just pretend it doesn't exist until it proves itself for a good amount of time.
I'd take Bad Co 3 over BF5. EA is dead set on turning BF into a yearly COD game, hey if we wanted a slapped together turd every Nov, we'd buy COD !
