Battlefield 5's Last Content Update Arrives In June
Battlefield V has a 7.0 update on the way, which will be the last drop of new content--but the game is not being dropped, the developer insists.
In April, Battlefield V developers DICE promised that the game would receive one last big update, which will arrive in June as Update 7.0. The latest "This Week in Battlefield V" update on Reddit confirms that the June content update is coming, and will be the last big one for the game--but a comment made by one developer also clears up some potential misconceptions around the game's path forward.
A comment from Braddock512--the game's community manager--clarifies that while there will not be new content coming to the game, this is not the "final" update. "It's the last content update--but we plan on dropping fixes and there will be the Community Games Update to add more tools to the feature," he writes. "There will be new/returning playlists when Update 7.0/June Update drops."
While major updates are ending, and players should perhaps not expect anything too major after Update 7.0, it sounds like the game won't become static and unchanging after the update.
Battlefield V released in November 2018, and has received content updates for over a year and a half. All players were recently granted some bonus currency to make up for in-game issues. The 200BFC is available to all players.
It's not the only DICE game to have its final content release in 2020--Star Wars Battlefront II recently received its final major update, and is far more feature rich than it was at launch. Both games are being scaled down as DICE sets its sights on a new Battlefield game for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, which is planned for 2021.
