Battlefield 5 Delayed
Battlefield is one of the most popular video game franchises known to the world. Their visuals and constant persistence towards making a realistic game has allowed for Battlefield to grow to become one of the most popular shooters in History. Unfortunately it was revealed today that Battlefield 5, the sequel to Battlefield 5 won’t be released until May of 2017. This is more than two years away which has already got fans of the series complaining about their decision.
The reason that Battlefield 5 has been delayed until 2017 is because Battlefield: Hardline, the next installment in the franchise which is essentially cops and robbers is being released in May of 2015. The year after that the highly sought out Star Wars Battlefront title will be released in May of 2016. This is the first battlefront game to be made for consoles in more than seven years and it’ll boost the best visuals in the franchise yet.
Electronic Arts said that if they had split the Battlefield team in two, one part of the team developing Hardline and the other part of the team developing Battlefield 5 then both of those titles wouldn’t compare to previous additions in the franchise. In order to make sure that this franchise avoids fatigue they have decided that the two games they currently have in development are more important than the fifth installment of the core Battlefield franchise.
We will update you on if the Battlefield 5 release date changes in the future.
