EA confirms that BF5 is set for release towards the end of 2016.

Battlefield 5 release date


EA has confirmed that the next Battlefield game, after Hardline, will be released in the last quarter of 2016, most likely October 2016 (BF4 and BF3 both launched in late-October).


Developers at DICE are currently working on Battlefield 5, but they are also working on several other titles. A big portion of the workforce is working on the next Star Wars Battlefront title, which is expected to be released later this year. Then there are also developers still working on Battlefield 4 (on patches, new content, etc.), and there are developers helping with the upcoming Hardline.


DICE has two offices: the main office in Stockholm, Sweden, and a smaller office in Los Angeles, which was worked on a lot of the BF4 expansions and patches.


EA had already confirmed that Battlefield 5 will be “military-themed”, that is, it won’t be a cops vs robbers game like Hardline.


Battlefield 5 should be the first next-gen-only Battlefield game, as we doubt EA and DICE will throw resources at PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
