Cops and robbers maybe what Battlefield: Hardline is going for but 2016's major Battlefield release will be all 'Tango Down' as it returns to military service. That's what EA CFO Blake Jorgensen had to say.
Why not next year? EA says they want to give players "more time to enjoy" Battlefield 4 and crime stomping before a new title invades. Also it helps to distance from Battlefield 4's disastrous launch.
The 2016 release is well underway and it's a "fun, new Battlefield," CFO Blake Jorgensen said at the 2014 UBS Global Technology Conference. "That will be a return to a Battlefield military-style game; more to come on that," he added.
"We want to give Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline players more time to enjoy these games and immerse themselves in a game, the live service, and the community," said new CEO Andrew Wilson last month to explain why they aren't annualising the series.
Let's hope for both the sake of the Battlefield series and fans that it's ready come launch day. The last of the DLC for Battlefield 4 released to Premium members this week.
