Call of Duty has pretty much run the market when it comes to first-person shooters since the last BattleField launched in 2018, BattleField V. Though the BattleField series has had its struggles over the years, EA and DICE have done a great job at making the game larger and more immersive over the years.
From my understanding, when they announced there would be a BATTLEFIELD title in 2019, it wasn’t due to lack of sales, but to focus on other titles and the development of the next installment in the series. EA and Dice did confirm that the series was coming back, with the game being rumored to be released in 2022.
Today, Geoff Keighly shared information that CEO of EA Andrew Wilson shared during EA’s recent earnings call:
