There May Not Be a New Battlefield Game until 2022

Bad news for Battlefield fans who haven’t taken a liking to the fifth installment and are eager to see what DICE is cooking up next. During today’s earnings call, EA revealed that it would not be releasing a new Battlefield game next year. Instead, Battlefield VI (or some kind of spin-off) will ship some time between April 2021 and March 2022 (fiscal year 2022).

EA also confirmed that Apex Legends would be its primary focus (as far as shooter games) for 2020. EA confirmed Apex Legends had reached 70 million players, with season 3 performing better than previous seasons. EA is planning on porting Apex Legends to mobile and “other” platforms, as well as making inroads with China’s video game industry and esports industry.
