Battlefield fans will recall the rumor floating around back in January that the next game in the Battlefield franchise would launch in late 2018. The official title for the game has been confirmed as Battlefield V and the live reveal of the game will happen on May 23 at 1pm PT.
What we do know is that this will be a brand-new experience for gamers with EA Dice promising unexpected theaters of war with every fight different than what we are used to. A new setting is tipped with rumors pointing to a WWII setting. The unveil event next week will also feature some of the dev team behind the game including “DICE team members Oskar Gabrielson, the head of DICE Stockholm, Andreas Morell, senior producer, Lars Gustavsson, creative director, and Daniel Berlin, design director, as they fill you in on their Battlefield V vision.”
#ad The rumors are true (rumors that I started, but still…) I will be hosting the @Battlefield Live Reveal on Wed, May 23rd. Catch it streaming live on the #Battlefield YouTube. V EXCITING! pic.twitter.com/7B3fpTpQ6x
