It looks like EA is preparing to bring us the next Battlefield game at some point within the next year or so! Transcripts of the EA Earnings Call have revealed that the publisher and developer expects to deliver the Next Battlefield game and their upcoming game Anthem in at some point in fiscal 2019.
According to the US Federal Government, fiscal 2019 runs between October 1, 2018 and September 30, 2019, which suggests we will be seeing the next Battlefield around the same time we always see a Battlefield game, towards the end of the year.
"The core of our fiscal 2019 is a full slate of sports titles and their associated live services, plus new live services from Star Wars Battlefront II. We will add the next Battlefield game, and move into the action genre with Anthem."
Battlefield 1, the most recent game in the franchise, released in October 2016. Now, all we have to do is discover what this Battlefield's theme will be.
