    Today, a German retailer by the name of World of Games has released some interesting information in regards to Dice's upcoming Battlefield 5. They described it as "Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter im 1. Weltkrieg" which when translated into English means, "Multiplayer Tactical Shooter in WW1". They also have alluded to the possible release date of October 26 of this year. World of Games has since removed those key details and the listing now stands as "Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter" which means "Multiplayer Tactical Shooter". Interestingly enough, that alleged release date is still present on the retailer's site.

    Back in December through a post on Twitter, the Development Director of Dice confirmed their next project would be another entry in the Battlefield series. Andrew Wilson, the CEO of EA, has also mentioned its release date being in the holiday season of this year. This new information is all very far from being legitimate confirmation, but it could be the first information we've heard about Battlefield 5.

    The possible setting of World War I can be very relieving and exciting to many people, including many gamers who have grown tired of the constant futuristic setting in first-person shooters over these recent years. It will certainly be interesting to see how Dice and EA can make a Battlefield game in that setting in this day and age. It would bring a stark contrast between things such as jet-packs and wall-riding to the infamous trenchwarfare of World War One.

    This sounds very interesting I would definitely be up for a WW1 aspect. It would be a nice change of pace from the battlefield that we have now.

      Hardline wasn't bad.

      Hardline wasn't a great game, but it wasn't awful. I'd give it a solid 6 out of 10.

    I'm definitely ok with this if it's true. That way if I get too tired of using WW1 guns I can always go back to BF4 for more modern warfare. As long as EA continues to listen to the community they'll eventually go back to being the great company they used to be.

    I really hope this is true. I know battlefield hasn't done futuristic but I am really sick of all the future shooters.
