Battlefield 2042 had its ups and downs but eventually didn't get to be what many players wanted from the shooter. Hopefully, the next title will meet expectations, and some people will be happy to learn that the game might return to older practices.

According to Insider Gaming, the next Battlefield brings back 64-player matches together with its 4-class system and overhauls the destruction systems. It takes place around 2025-2030 and focuses on modern military technology.

It seems like we'll see the game in October 2025, although the new Battlefield release date is by no means set yet.

Apart from this, we should expect another experience in the franchise. It's said Ripple Effect is working on a free-to-play battle royale title. There are 2 game modes at the moment: the battle royale as we know it and Gauntlet, where teams complete objectives, and whoever scores the lowest leaves after every mission. Rumor has it that Byron Beede, who used to work on live service for Call of Duty and is now the general manager of the Battlefield series, is the creator of the idea.

The next release in the franchise was supposed to be directed by Marcus Lehto, the co-creator of Halo, but he has left EA and Ridgeline Games.

It's interesting to see what lessons Battlefield developers have learned. Meanwhile, read the original article here and join our 80 Level Talent platform and our Telegram channel, follow us on InstagramTwitter, and LinkedIn, where we share breakdowns, the latest news, awesome artworks, and more.
