During its recent conference call, Electronic Arts has confirmed that the next-gen Battlefield game will release in holiday 2021. According to the publisher, DICE is working on it and we can safely assume that it will be using the Frostbite Engine.
As EA has stated:
“The next Battlefield is set to launch in holiday 2021, and we are excited to share a lot more about the game in the spring.”
EA claimed that this new Battlefield game will be of a “never-before-seen scale”. As said, this BF game will be only coming to next-gen platforms (including the PC). There are no plans to release this BF game on old-gen consoles (at least for now).
EA has also stated that it has hands-on play testing underway internally. Moreover, DICE has been getting “very positive feedback on the game” as it has “begun to engage its community”.
