New Battlefield’s Release Date Announced

"EA announces a the next game in the Battlefield series will be release in the fall of 2016."

The next Battlefield game dubbed “Battlefield 5” won’t be released until the last quarter of 2016, roughly two years from now, EA has announced today.

EA CEO Andrew Wilson revealed during a conference call earlier today that the release of the next Battlefield game will be coming later than most fans expected. Battlefield 4 is still adding new players and engaging existing fans a year after launch according to Wilson. “As a result of the extended services and content updates that we provide, it’s clear that players want to experience the games we’re delivering for longer periods of time. Looking into next year, we will ensure that our players have enough time between releases to fully explore the depth and innovation in our shooter titles.”



With Hardline being put back until March 17, 2015 we won’t see another Battlefield game pushed out just six or seven months later, as some fans worried. “Following this launch, our next Battlefield experience is planned planned for launch in Q3 FY17,” Wilson said, referencing the period that spans October-December 2016. “We want to give Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline players more time to enjoy these games and immerse themselves in a game, the live service, and the community.”

This announced timeline for the next Battlefield puts about a year and a half between releases but would mean that new Battlefield games debuted in consecutive years.

EA also announced that DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront will have a holiday 2015 release.

Now days I mainly play PC games and got into the PC side of things when I started playing Everquest in 2005. This game opened my eyes to the mmorpg genre and since then have played most MMO's of which World of Warcraft was my most played. Right now I'm playing and streaming DayZ and FIFA with a few other games thrown in here and there.
