The next Battlefield title after the release of Hardline will be a military-themed title was the word for Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen. While he did not confirm if the new Battlefield title would be called Battlefield 5, he said that it would be a return to a military-style Battleifled game and it will be a fun new Battlefield.
Speaking at the 2014 UBS Global Technology Conference, Jorgensen’s comments are some of the first regarding the next Battlefield offering. While not confirmed, it is thought that Hardline which was supposed to be a 2014 release, is now scheduled to arrive in March.
Star Wars Battlefront (3) which is also in development by Battlefield developer DICE is likely a late 2015 holiday release to tie in with the new Star Wars film. With this confirmation, it would seem that Battlefield 5 (At least that is what we are calling it right now) will be a fall or holiday 2016 offering. With this longer development cycle we have to think that DICE should be able to avoid some of the teething problems that it experienced with the release of Battlefield 4.
