Battlefield 5 Reveal Event Confirmed, Here's When It's Happening

"The future of Battlefield is coming up."

108 Comments

[Update] An official event page for the Battlefield 5 world premiere has appeared, confirming it will be revealed on "May 6 at 4 PM ET/9 PM BST. EA will provide "a first look at the future of Battlefield" on its Twitch page.

"Get insight into the minds of the developers as you hear from the creative director Lars Gustavsson and lead producer Aleksander Grondal on the past, present and the future of Battlefield," reads a press release sent to GameSpot.

[Original story] EA will reveal Battlefield 5 on May 6, according to a report from German website Play3.de, which claims to have confirmed the information from official sources.

The site goes on to say it will be unveiled at 8 PM CET to press, with a livestream of the event to follow at 10 PM CET. It has also published an excerpt from the invitation, which has been translated from German below.

No Caption Provided

"The future of Battlefield is coming up and you are invited to the world premiere," it reads. "On May 6, we will reveal the next milestone in the Battlefield franchise. Come and meet our creative team at DICE."

In October 2014, publisher EA confirmed a new entry in the Battlefield series will ship in 2016. Chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen said it planned to have a new shooter yearly, and would followup Star Wars Battlefront with a Battlefield.

"What we've said is that our intention over the next couple of years is to have a first-person shooter as one of the core titles," he replied. "This year it's Star Wars: Battlefront. Next year, it's another Battlefield title."

It was previously teased that the Battlefield series will return to "military-style game" and is already shaping up to be a "fun, new Battlefield."

EA also previously said Mass Effect Andromeda Titanfall 2, and Battlefield 5 would be out during fiscal year 2017, which runs from April 1, 2016 through March 31, 2017. A teaser for TitanFall 2 has been released and EA plans to fully reveal it on June 12.

2015's Star Wars: Battlefront was also developed by DICE, which is responsible for the core entries in the Battlefield series. DICE has laid out plans to release free and paid expansions for Battlefront in the future.

If it is actually Battlefield 5, they've done something wrong. It's time for them to return to one of the other directions for the series (Bad Company or 2142), or go in an entirely new direction.

It'll be nice playing Battlefield 5 on my PlayStation 4.5 or Xbox One and a half, with upgraded graphics.

@Tanares: I'm really hoping its NOT WWI. That will be really boring and get there really fast. Trench fighting? No thank you. With tanks that go like 10-15mph. No thanks. All it will be is static and proxy warfare. I would like it if they went to Vietnam with todays hardware it could really look amazing if you have a rig that can handle it.

@Tanares: LOL valid point. I'm just not a fan of camping or staying in a trench to fight. I enjoy moving around, destroying a building or blowing a hole in one etc. But from what I understand from the fairly little research that I've done on WWI compared to WWII most of it was static with death charges across moderate flat land that was scorched earth with your craters here and there from artillery barrages.

@Kisalon: Yes. The last Call of Duty set in WWII were the final days of the PTO. Second Call of Duty was set in the Battle of Lenningrad, just months before Germany fell (or was it Stalingrad?)

@MoreThot: There's another one... but its not a shooter. Valiant Hearts actually shows some of the horror and drama that war was known for, be it a ficticious story or not.

And for the record I'm pulling for the WWI angle for two reasons: 1) it's not an overdone war like WWII. 2) The unconventional weapons designed and actually deployed would make for some interesting gameplay. If it's NOT WWI then please for the love of all that's unholy bring out the sequel to 2143.

Would still like a cold war battlefield. Its not an overused era (yet) with plenty of material that's yet to be explored. I also love the combination of old style warfare against the backdrop of new technologies and cold war intrigue.

@juiceair: Rumors indicate they're doing a World War I setting, which could still be interesting and stand out from all the other modern/futuristic military shooters

@Spartan_418: If its WWI it won't last very long. All the game will consist of is static and proxy warfare. I hope they go to vietnam with todays hardware. I'd even be happy with 1944 or bc3. Anything will be better than WWI setting.

I would take another WW2-era game, futuristic (a.k.a. Battlefield 2142) game, or Bad Company 3. But seeing as how EA makes poor decisions, then I'm guessing it will be another soulless current-day shooter that throws in a few futuristic aspects to look edgy.

My brain tells me it's WW2. My heart tells me it's WW1, but my gut, given Developers never giving anyone what they want, tells me it's going to be another played out, stale Modern or Science Fiction shooter, for which i will be officially done with the BF series. Absolutely bored to death of this stuff. Bring on WW1.

@xxbioghostxx:

Well, my heart tells me WW1 because that's what everything is pointing too (leaks and the like), and what i would want. Though WW2 may be more practical.

But with Battlefront out, they would be absolutely crazy for their whole series to go Science Fiction (2142).

Probably near future, but given the inundation of that, i'll never play it. The Division was the last game i'll play of that.
