Gabrielson explained that the team is in "daily playtesting mode right now", and assures fans that the next entry in the storied franchise will be 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," suggesting reports of the game skipping last generation hardware could be proven correct.
The game is in development at DICE, alongside Criterion and DICE LA. While we've known for some time that a new Battlefield title is coming, this is the first official announcement about the new title.
Alongside the promise of a reveal "soon", a new Battlefield mobile game was announced for 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," Gabrielson explained.
The post promises a standalone game, specifically designed for mobile and being built from the ground up by Industrial Toys.
