EA and Visceral Games have confirmed that Battlefield Hardline will come with nine new maps and seven game modes at launch early next year. However, five of those game modes will be brand new to the Battlefield franchise, although this will come at the expense of some other notable game modes, including Rush.
Steve Papoutsis, one of the developers at Visceral, made the confirmation during a video with YouTuber, JackFrags. Confirmed game modes include: Hotwire, Rescue, Blood Money, Heist, Conquest and Team Deathmatch, so there is still one more to be revealed.
Battlefield Hardline was originally due out this month but it has been pushed back to 2015 in order to incorporate beta feedback. Lead multiplayer designer, Thad Sasser, noted on the Battlefield blog that there would be another beta in the future to gather more feedback ahead of launch.
Additionally, Visceral Games has been making an effort to sidestep criticism of the Battlefield franchise after the launch of Battlefield 4. The developer has stated that the game “will work” at launch.
