EA puts Battlefield on ice till at least April 2021



Do not anticipate a new Battlefield game for a couple years, as Electronic Arts noted in a conference contact for its fiscal earnings currently that the series is going to be taking a break.

The Battlefield series began in September 2002 with the launch of Battlefield 1942. For the previous quite a few years, the franchise has made a new entry just about every two years. When that pace is not as intense as Get in touch with of Duty’s schedule of one particular new game just about every year, it nonetheless kept developer Dice busy. And although Battlefield was by no means as large as Get in touch with of Duty, it was nonetheless EA’s premier shooter franchise.

Nonetheless, Battlefield V launched in 2018 to disappointing sales.
