This week, DICE and EA began teasing this year's Battlefield game, promising bigger battles and more destruction than ever before. Battlefield 6 isn't the only new project in the works though, EA is also planning a Battlefield mobile game to compete with the likes of Call of Duty Mobile and other mobile-based shooters.
In a blog post, DICE GM, Oskar Gabrielson, writes: “It’s always been our vision to bring Battlefield to more platforms. So, after years of prototyping, I’m super happy to be able to let you know that our friends at Industrial Toys, working closely with all of us here at DICE, are developing a completely new Battlefield game bringing all-out warfare to smartphones and tablets in 2022.”
The post goes on to explain that this will be a standalone game and will be completely separate from the PC and console versions of Battlefield. As far as gameplay goes though, the team hasn't revealed much. It could end up being a mobile-focused battle royale, or it could be something more akin to Call of Duty Mobile, which is a smaller scale version of COD's multiplayer modes.
Currently, Battlefield Mobile is in the testing phase and isn't planned to release until 2022, so it could be a while before we see it in action.

KitGuru Says: Since PUBG and Fortnite went mobile, it has become more common for larger IP to get dedicated mobile games. With that in mind, it shouldn't be much of a surprise to see Battlefield following that trend. What do you all think of the idea of a Battlefield mobile game?
