  • Report: Battlefield 2 Is Battlefield 2018, Set During WWII (Update)

However, their sources say Battlefield 2 will be out this calendar year, which nearly definitely means late October or November. That would mean that Battlefield V is a logical title for the next installment...

Word is, EA and DICE chose to return to historical settings several years ago, but decided not to fire their big WWII bullet right away. What kind of setting would you rather see Battlefield tackle?

A rumor from December claiming DICE is working on Battlefield: Bad Company 3 - set during the Vietnam War - is inaccurate, VentureBeat claims.

With Electronic Arts confirming that the next Battlefield game will be playable it the company's EA Play event shortly before E3 2018, it was only a matter of time before reports started popping up with details as to its setting.

His proposal, followed by chants of "Wazir-e-Azam, Nawaz Sharif ", was endorsed by Prime Minister Khaqan Abbasi, who said: "These are the peoples' decisions".

It looks like DICE the makers of the hugely successful Battlefield 1 which came out in 2016 is getting a sequel.

Venture Beat reports that the game will be set during World War 2, while the previous game was set during World War 1.

This also follows on the success of later year's Call of Duty: WWII, which sold more than any CoD for a number of years. The first was 2002's Battlefield: 1942 and the last was 2009's Battlefield 1943, though the latter game only released on consoles. They knew they wanted to get away from the modern and near-future settings for a while, but it also didn't want to burn the WWII setting right away.

We've reached out to EA for comment, and will update this post with any responses we receive.
