The next Battlefield game is coming in 2021, developer DICE has confirmed. In a statement to IGN, the Swedish studio said that, with support for Star Wars: Battlefront II and Battlefield V winding down, it is “focused on the future of Battlefield” for a new game set for release in 2021.
This new Battlefield game was announced in October 2019, at which time publisher Electronic Arts said the game would launch in the company’s fiscal year 2022, which runs from April 2021 to March 2022. Now we know a more specific launch period–sometime in 2021.
EA hasn’t shared any concrete details about the new Battlefield game, but it did tease that the title will be “targeting new innovation that will be enabled by next-gen platforms.”
