The team working on the current Battlefield game is the biggest in the series’ history, split across four different studios, DICE has revealed. In addition, the game will be revealed to the public “soon”.
In a new update on Battlefield’s development, DICE General Manager, Oskar Gabrielson, revealed that the Stockholm-based studio is working in collaboration with Electronic Arts Gothenburg, Criterion, and DICE LA on the project. “We have our biggest team ever on a Battlefield game for console and PC,” Gabrielson said. “Together, we are creating a jaw-dropping experience for you to enjoy later in 2021.”
Aside from PC, DICE has yet to confirm the platforms for the new Battlefield game. However, Gabrielson’s announcement seemingly half-reveals that it will be on new-generation consoles.
“It has everything we love about Battlefield – and takes all of it to the next level,” he said. “Epic scale. All-out military warfare. Crazy, unexpected moments. Game-changing destruction. Massive battles, packed with more players and mayhem than ever before. All brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs.”
While we still have to wait for PS5 and Xbox Series X confirmation, that statement does point to those platforms. It’s also a half-suggestion that previous generation consoles may be left behind.
This new Battlefield game is set to be released Holiday 2021. Gabrielson teased that players should “get ready for our reveal ‘soonTM’”, so be on standby for a big announcement. DICE also announced today that a Battlefield game for mobile is also in development, due in 2022.
