Electronic Arts announced today that a Battlefield will launch on mobile devices as a standalone game in 2022.
It’s always been our vision to bring Battlefield to more platforms. So, after years of prototyping, I’m super happy to be able to let you know that our friends at Industrial Toys, working closely with all of us here at DICE, are developing a completely new Battlefield game bringing all-out warfare to smartphones and tablets in 2022.
Make no mistake, this is a standalone game. A completely different game from the one we’re making for console and PC, designed specifically for the mobile platform. It’s being built from the ground up by iToys to make Battlefield-on-the-go a reality and you can expect a fully-fledged, skill-based experience. This mobile game is now entering a testing period ahead of launching next year, so expect more details to come.
Electronic Arts also teased the release of the next-gen Battlefield game scheduled for 2021, the game is being developed by the largest team ever on a Battlefield game for console and PC. Criterion and DICE LA are helping the original team to fulfills the developers’ vision for the game, the team in Gothenburg is taking technology in the game to the next level.
We’re in daily playtesting mode right now: polishing, balancing, and making the best possible Battlefield game we can. I can tell you it is a bold step. It has everything we love about Battlefield – and takes all of it to the next level. Epic scale. All-out military warfare. Crazy, unexpected moments. Game-changing destruction. Massive battles, packed with more players and mayhem than ever before. All brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs.
Battlefield VI rumors claim that up to 128 multiplayer gameplay can be supported on next-gen consoles, old-gen hardware is expected to support up to 32 players with other next-gen features reduced. The game is also rumored to support destructible cities on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
