first_imgEA Dice has confirmed it would release a new “Battlefield” game in 2021, its first fresh release since November 2018.While the company said it will continue to support “Battlefield V,” it won’t provide any more core updates after this summer. Could elements of ‘Battlefield 6’ be free?After Activision took the leap and released the free to play “Call of Duty: Warzone” to positive reception, it’s now up to other legacy FPS studios such as EA DICE to decide whether to follow the trend or stick with what’s worked in the past. The benefit of free Battle Royale modes for companies is the continued cash flow of DLC cosmetics. Activision has also done a good job using “Warzone” to promote its paid “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” title.There is not yet any indication one way or the other what EA DICE will do here.When will ‘Battlefield 5’ updates stop?In a recent announcement, EA DICE said the final major update for “Battlefield V” will come in June. It will continue to address bugs, though, and still provide attention to the title for the forseeable future. Attention, then, will turn to the next iteration for the franchise, which will be critical in keeping EA DICE afloat in the FPS space. “Battlefield V” is viewed as a sales disappointment, and the FPS genre has evolved significantly since its release, particularly in terms of Battle Royale popularity.Still, the devout following of the game among hardcore fans gives it hope for a strong rebound, especially with the imminent release of next-gen consoles potentially playing up its renowned aesthetics.MORE: What’s new in “Call of Duty: Warzone” updateDetails remain sparse for Battlefield 6, but we do have some hints of what’s to come.Here is the latest on Battlefield 6, as well as the implications of the new game on Battlefield V:When is the ‘Battlefield 6’ release date?EA DICE has confirmed the game will be released in 2021, and we can narrow it down further than that based on prior reports. According to Niko Partners, it will be shipped sometime after April 1.”Battlefield V” was a November release, putting it up against other prominent FPS titles and perhaps harming its sales numbers. As a result, it’s possible (though not yet reported) that EA DICE will select a different part of the year, such as summer or earlier in the fall, to put it on the market.It’s unclear whether the coronavirus pandemic will have an impact on the development timeline.What details are known about ‘Battlefield 6’?EA DICE has kept mum on details of the game, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating what could be ahead.Among those fan-driven ideas: A greater focus on multiplayer over campaign, the introduction of Battle Royale and a more modern or futuristic era setting. While “Battlefield” has long been popular because of its differences from other FPS titles, it may feel pressure from competitors to mimick certain aspects of breakout games.One thing EA has discussed is the expanded capabilities provided by the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.”You should assume the power of those consoles is much more than existing consoles,” said Blake Jorgenson, the CEO and CFO of EA, on an earnings call earlier this year. “We can do a lot more. You will start to see things over the next couple of years that will blow people’s minds.”last_img read more
