So Activision has already confirmed that we will be getting a new Call of Duty game later this year, and the question is what about EA’s Battlefield? Will we be seeing a new Battlefield game this year? Unlike Call of Duty, Battlefield hasn’t always been an annual release, but at the same time we reckon a new installment in the franchise is due.
According to a report from Power-Up Gaming, it seems that 2018’s Battlefield could be in the works and could actually be Bad Company 3. The last time we saw a Bad Company Battlefield game was back in 2010 with Bad Company 2, and before that in 2008 with the original launch of Bad Company.
This means that it has been about 8 years since the last Bad Company game, something that fans of the series might be excited at the prospect of. How did they chance upon this information? According to the report, this is based on a tweet by a certain Abbas Alrubaie on Twitter, who is a DICE LA employee.
His account has since been made private which only fuels the speculation that he might have been right. His tweet also lines up with leakster AlmightyDaq who had also previously claimed that 2018’s Battlefield will be Bad Company 3. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but with Battlefield 1’s monthly updates coming to an end, it does seem to signal that a new Battlefield game could be on its way and hopefully we’ll have more details soon, such as at E3 2018.
