Battlefield 2 in Development, Goes Back To WW2

Report: Battlefield 2 Is Battlefield 2018, Set During WWII (Update) Report: This Year's 'Battlefield' Is Going Back to WWII
| 02 March, 2018, 08:01

The next Battlefield will launch on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 in late 2018. However, it was hesitant to use WWII right off the bat, so it went with World War I for Battlefield 1. The game will, much like last year's Call of Duty: World War 2, be set in World War 2.

This information comes via VentureBeat, who notes that the game was originally called Battlefield 2. Of course, Battlefield 1 ended up being a big success, surpassing 25 million players as of last December and launching EA back into competition with Activision and Call of Duty. But GamesBeat backs up what TheAlmightyDaq revealed past year by also reporting that DICE is holding onto a potential Bad Company sequel in case they need to make another strategic shift in the future, just as they did with Battlefield 1 and are doing with Battlefield V.


So while this news is now speculative, we wouldn't be surprised if the official confirmation reveals that the Battlefield series has returned to its World War II roots. EA already confirmed this to investors stating that instead of Anthem a new Battlefield game will be released, albeit not stating if it would be Battlefield V or Battlefield: Bad Company 3. That said, DICE is listening to fans of Bad Company, and it is keeping a potential sequel in its back pocket in case it needs to make another strategic shift in the future. The game will apparently be releasing sometime later this year, and will be the first time the company has returned to World War 2 since 2009 with Battlefield 1943, an online shooter.
