Battlefield 5 is currently penciled in to release towards the end of 2016 but we are already starting to hear some details about the game. For example, it turns out that the upcoming title will bring the series back to its military roots, taking a step away from Battlefield Hardline’s approach, which features cops VS robbers.
Speaking at the UBS Global Technology Conference this week, EA CFO, Blake Jorgensen, said that Battlefield 5 is shaping up to be a “fun, new Battlefield”, we will also see a “return to a Battlefield, military style game; more to come on that”.
Battlefield Hardline will come out at the beginning of next year, EA has previously stated that Battlefield 5 has been pushed back until holiday 2016 in order to give players more time to play Visceral Game’s upcoming take on the series as well as the recently fixed Battlefield 4, which had a very troubled launch last year.
In addition, Star Wars Battlefront III is due to launch during the holiday season next year and EA likely doesn’t want to take too many resources away from that game’s development.

KitGuru Says: While it’s good to see EA not rushing out another Battlefield, particularly after what happened last year, I don’t really care much for the standard military shooter style. However, I’m sure many of our readers do enjoy the military setting. What do you guys think about this? Would you rather see DICE do something different with the Franchise in 2016?
