The Battlefield is Expanding

From Dice: "I know everyone is wanting more detail about what’s to come for Battlefield this year, and I promise we have A LOT to show you in the coming months. We’re putting some things together for when we reveal the next generation of Battlefield, and we can’t wait to show that to you all...but for now, we have a couple of things we wanted to tell you about.

First, we’re really excited to have the biggest Battlefield development team ever working on our console and PC game for this Holiday season, and second...we have something very exciting to talk about on mobile!"

I know this game will be amazing and I can't wait to play it on pc. It seems like it's only coming to next generation consoles and pc which is awesome if true.

Did you forget about Battlefield V? Go in carefully.

Did you forget about battlefield 3,4,1?? You’re basing an opinion with game and forgetting the other awesome games they made. Why are gamers so entitled and negative

SinisterKieran21d ago

not to mention...i don't hate BFV.

AnotherGamer21d ago

@SinisterKieran You may not hate it, but clearly everyone did and that's why it didn't do so well.

AnotherGamer21d ago

@cell989 because Battlefield 1 was good and comparing to BFV, the quality of that one immensely drop. Did you also forget the many things EA tried and said to try to sell the game? The controversies were there and stained the franchise. DICE has now an uphill battle now, they need to demonstrate that they can pull themselves from theirs and EA's mismanagement of BFV. They just need to prove it first, that's why I'm not putting a lot of hype on this one yet until I see more.

@cell989 I think (ironically) you forgot how rough Battlefield 4 was at launch and how long it took to fix it. It's one of the worst launches in modern gaming.

Not to mention how they managed to take the momentum from 1 and drive it into the ground with V. Plus it's EA, why should anyone give them the benefit of the doubt after all the stuff they've done? Same with DICE.

Personally im not a fan of battlefield.

It sold 7.3 million in 2 months and 1 million less than the last game. That still blows out any Sony game.

spicelicka20d ago

I don't really understand the hate, but maybe I'm just not a hardcore fan sensitive to the nuances. I played Battlefield V, amazing graphics, destructible environments that no other game does, actually a great campaign for an MP focused game, the MP playercount is crazy in those giant battlefields, they also introduced battle royale. It's such a solid game.

"Soon" isn't soon enough. SHOW IT TO ME! 😂

I'd love to see them go all out with destruction. Red Faction Guerilla still holds the title for best destruction and it came out 12 years ago. If a AAA studio applied today's tech to destruction it would sure bring a smile to this face.

KyRo21d ago (Edited 21d ago )

I'm all for destruction but not everything should be leveled. Bad company 2 was a great game with some incredible maps but every match of rush would have some dick in a tank collapsing all the buildings which made it a hard time to play. There still need to be element of map design. Not just destroy everything lol

REDGUM21d ago

Though I 100% can agree with you're comment, it is also totally up to the apposing side to team/squad up and take care of the tank together before running head 1st into the battle.

That's what I love about Battlefield, the teamwork, the reliance of the other 3 different squad members and how it changes the game & gameplay moving forward with every online battle.
Without teamwork it becomes another online shooter and every man/woman for themselves.
I'm looking forward to this game, I truly am but they have to make templates the centre pillar of the design for me.

Looking forward to squad up with anyone who's keen on ps5 guys 👍.

I absolutely cannot wait for this game! The chaos with the player count going up is going to be amazing!!! I think this is a year where Battlefield can overtake Call of Duty in popularity. I think it's the perfect storm. What do you guys think? Thought on BF surpassing COD this year? Not like sales, but like overall outlook on the game and what people want to play and quality of course.

franwex21d ago

This year probably as it seems that COD is making another WW2 shooter. But next year it’s MW2.

I used to prefer Battlefield over COD, but it’s become rather-meh.

AnotherGamer21d ago (Edited 21d ago )

Did everyone just forget about Battlefield V lately? Check your hype level and be careful about it, we don't know how the new game is gonna fare yet.

KyRo21d ago (Edited 21d ago )

There was nowhere near the levels of hype for BFV compared to this lol. A lot of people were put off that it was a WW2 shooter so close after a WW1 shooter, then the trailer dropped and it lost more momentum for obvious reasons, that trailer was awful lol

Bigger player counts, modern day, more destruction and this year's COD being based in WW2 (by sledgehammer who make sub par COD titles IMO) has all the makings of a success story for Battlefield.

Bnet34321d ago

I have Battlefield V and I actually liked it. But it was a tad underwhelming. I think them going back to "modern future" is already going to have people excited. Just happy we are getting this game this year!

Extermin8or3_21d ago

Except if its next gen only the potential market they have... is alot smaller than CoD which will be cross gen...

XxSPIDEYxX21d ago

The biggest development team? Good Lord! We're ready for all out war.
