Battlefield 5 Delay Good for the Franchise, Analyst Says

Electronic Arts' decision to launch Battlefield 5 (or whatever comes after Battlefield Hardline) in 2016 instead of 2015 was a smart move for the overall health of the series. That's according to Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia, who said in a note to investors today that launching the game in 2016 will help the Battlefield series avoid franchise "fatigue."

If the new Battlefield game were to launch in 2015, it would mean EA would have released two major Battlefield titles in the year. Hardline is scheduled to launch on March 17, 2015.

They better learn from BF4 mistakes when they launched it full of glitches and bugs here and there. We need to see an improvement on the Single player side of the game, the multiplayer is perfect as always and the maps are amazing, we just need a story that would keep us on the edge of our seats, based on true events or fiction I don't really care I just need to see myself playing the campaign for more than 5 hours with an unprecedented, action-packed story telling.
