Battlefield is on EA's release schedule for 2016


A new Battlefield game is on EA's release schedule for 2016, with EA's CFO, Blake Jorgensen, saying that they have plans to release an FPS title as an EA "core title" every year.


"What we've said is that our intention over the next couple of years is to have a first-person shooter as one of the core titles," "This year, obviously, it's Star Wars Battlefront. Next year, it's another Battlefield title."

This is very interesting as last year EA's Partick Soderlund said that EA had no plans to annualise the battlefield series, but with a Battlefield game planned for 2016 and battlefield Hardline having recently been released in March, it looks like things might have changed. 

With EA backing 3 major FPS games, Titanfall, Battlefield and now Battlefront, EA have an opportunity to have a FPS shooter in it's lineup every year while still giving each game a lengthy development time, which is good to see. The question is will EA give these games such a lengthy development time or attempt to release a new game every 1-2 years as normal.

Meh going of the last couple of Battlefield games I am fairly certain that it will be a mess, when they change to a model that doesn't involve all the stupid "Levolution" and they can fix the Frostbite engine to not suffer all the same issues then Battlefield may be worth looking at but until then I will keep, an eye on the games and try a beta if there is one, but if there isn't then I am not paying to be a aplha/beta tester.Quote

The reason why they have changed their minds I think is they have so much info from running the CTE that they are basically testing stuff before they release it in a new game, which hopefully should make the games less buggy at launch but it is EA/Dice so who knowsQuote

Let's see how Battlefront plays out before we get excited about next year's game.Quote

Well it's not so much about DICE's fault, more like EA's fault. I've followed Battlefield since 2142 and was literally a hardcore gamer on 2142. And DICE has always worked hard, but EA has always pushed the deadline and therefore not making the game through DICE's testing stage before release... therefore they release a game in the first place, sorry about my language.

Wil be quite exiting to see what they will do, in my opinion Quote
