Battlefield 2 in Development, Goes Back To WW2

More sources say Battlefield 2 is set in WWII and is coming this year

More sources say Battlefield 2 is set in WWII and is coming this year

Though EA has referred to Battlefield V as Battlefield 2 internally. That would mean that Battlefield V is a logical title for the next installment...

This is an entirely new Battlefield game and not a remaster of the 2005 Battlefield 2.

While EA is going with World War II, some fans may remember a recent rumor from December that DICE is working on Battlefield: Bad Company 3 that takes place around the Vietnam War.

In fact, according to the report, EA and DICE decided long ago that the futuristic setting wasn't where they wanted to keep the franchise. Or does the move feel a little "me too" after the success of Call of Duty: WWII?

As GamesBeat is reporting, the next Battlefield game will use World War II as its setting. Now it seems like old settings are getting a comeback thanks to the releases of both Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: WWII. Of course, Battlefield 1 did very well so now EA's looking to maintain that momentum while transitioning to WWII. Now is the flawless time for DICE to make this move and bring the series back, though the optics will be that they are following Call of Duty this time where the narrative was flipped in 2016. But GamesBeat backs up what TheAlmightyDaq revealed past year by also reporting that DICE is holding onto a potential Bad Company sequel in case they need to make another strategic shift in the future, just as they did with Battlefield 1 and are doing with Battlefield V.

We have reached out to Electronic Arts for comment and will update this article if we receive an official statement regarding these reports.
