One of the popular modes of games these days is the battle royale mode, which games like Fortnite and PUBG helped to popularize. This has resulted in recent games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V introducing similar modes to their games. Unfortunately for Battlefield V gamers, the battle royale mode is only expected to arrive in 2019.
This was confirmed on the Battlefield website where DICE shared their roadmap for the game and its updates. According to the blog post, it has been confirmed that the Firestorm update will only arrive in the spring of 2019, which means that gamers will still need to wait several more months before they’ll be able to play it.
We’re not sure why EA and DICE have decided to release the update in 2019, but players will have no choice but to wait for it. We’re not sure if this is a good or bad thing since capitalizing on the trend now does seem like a smart move. However at the same time with there being so many games that are featuring the battle royale mode, perhaps launching it at a later date when the market isn’t so crowded might not be such a bad idea either.
