What's Next?

With Battlefield V receiving no new content after Chapter 7, devs will focus on whatever they're working on next as well as keeping Battlefield V going in other ways.

With a focus on anti-cheat solutions, community match types, and friendly DICE-supported play sessions, Battlefield V isn't going anywhere yet – until the inevitable sixth instalment that is.
