According to EA’s recent earnings report, the company’s CEO Andrew Wilson revealed (via IGN) that the company’s next Battlefield game will feature single-player mode. “With our next Battlefield game, the team at DICE is bringing the intensity of combat to life in new and unexpected ways. Every battle is unique, and every mode brings its own challenges – from the way you interact with the environment around you, to compelling single-player stories, to the next level of large-scale multiplayer that spans across multiple maps and modes.”
We’re not sure if this was always planned or if EA might be looking to capitalize on the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 rumors. After all Call of Duty and Battlefield are pretty much competing for the same player base, so if there is a way for EA to attract more gamers to Battlefield, we’re sure that they will take it.
It is expected that a new Battlefield game will be announced later this year. The rumors are claiming that the next Battlefield game will be Bad Company 3, but EA has yet to make any official announcement, but it is possible that more details could be revealed during E3 2018 next month.
