It appears that the next Battlefield game will come out in 2021. As DICE has stated, with the release of the latest update for both Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Battlefield 5, it can now focus on the future of Battlefield.
DICE stated that this new Battlefield game will be coming to next-gen platforms. According to the team, Battlefield 2021 will target new innovation that will be enabled by next-gen platforms. Therefore, we may see more Ray Tracing effects in this new Battlefield game.
EA also added:
“Bringing out Battlefield [in 2020], where the new console base is fairly small, doesn’t really give justice to the potential of the title, and so that’s part of our driver in moving the title into fiscal 22.”
By the sound of it, this new Battlefield game will come out only on next-gen platforms. In other words, this will be a fully fledged next-generation Battlefield game. Naturally, the game will be using the Frostbite Engine. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how this next-gen game will look like.
Let’s also not forget that the latest Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield games looked amazing on the PC. So yeah, we are really looking forward to Battlefield 2021.
