Want to know what’s coming for the Battlefield franchise? Well, hang on a bit because developer DICE is about to tell you.
Coming up in short order, DICE will be holding a little town hall presentation, online style, to tell the world what’s what with Battlefield. The first-person shooter franchise hasn’t been seen nor heard from since last year’s Battlefield Hard Line, which was a distinct departure for the series. Instead of being set in a military campaign, it was an elaborate game of cops and robbers, set inside the US.
Thought the game was met with some praise, it wasn’t really ‘Battlefield’ in the strictest sense, and felt like more of a spinoff. It’s as yet unclear just what path the franchise will be taking as we move forward, but you will find out a lot more than you know now on May 6th.
That’s the day, and 1pm pacific time is the hour, as DICE’s Creative Director Lars Gustavsson and Lead Producer Aleksander Grondal will be talking about the series from its beginnings in WWII, up through the present era and into the next incarnation… well, I guess anyway. The press release isn’t super-specific about what new info we can expect to glean from the talk, but it is about the future, so I think it’s safe to assume we’ll see/hear something new.
And this is going to be an interactive conversation too, not just a one-way presentation. Fans will be able to get in on the event and pose questions to the team in attendance, when the floor is opened up to them. So maybe get your queries ready now, if you plan on taking part.
There’s been a lot of talk about some of the big FPS’ returning to the second great war sometime soon, could that be what DICE will be revealing? Or might they br talking about something else? Maybe something in the future, or a revisitation of the modern era of battle?
Tune in and find out.
