EA Teases A New Battlefield Game Every Two Years

Battlefield and Call of Duty have been at odds for some time. It makes sense, really - both semi-regular war-based shooters with a big focus on multiplayer experiences with AAA budgets - it’d be more of a shock if they weren’t pitted against each other. But, as can be expected, in many ways Call of Duty came out on top due to its yearly production cycle. Its frequency kept players engaged, and it squeezed Battlefield out of the conversation a bit.

Now that Battlefield 2042 is on its way, there’s a chance for the series to make an unprecedented comeback - and it looks like the team or toying with the idea of keeping up with the CoDs of the world.

EA Says A New Battlefield Every Two years “Makes Sense”

During an EA investors call earlier this week, the company’s CEO Andrew Wilson responded to a question, wondering if the series could ever return to its one game every two years schedule.

I think that is our orientation but more importantly, I think you should think about Battlefield as a service”, he said. “You know, what we’re doing for the launch of this game is really revolutionising and reinventing what all our epic scale warfare is in the context of gameplay. In addition to that, we’ve announced Battlefield Portal, which really starts to lean into user-generated content and will drive deep, long-term engagement in the game.”

A bit of a long answer to a short question, but it gives a little insight into the team’s attitude to moving back to a shorter production time.

This statement from the EA CEO seems to imply that the company are more willing to give Battlefield 2042 time to breathe. It’s unlikely that we’ll see another Battlefield so soon as 2 years after the launch of this new title, as they expect that Portal’s community focus will keep players coming back to the game for years to come, a bit like Super Mario Maker, only with more murder.

Either way, it’s not such a bad thing if they take their time. At least we can be assured that these games are getting all of the love and time they need, and we’d much rather a game that took longer than lose quality in production. Finger crossed that’s what we can expect of the next Battlefield title, too.
