It looks like Battlefield 5 will be set in the World War I time period and will be released this October! A German retailer has an listing on their site for Battlefield 5 in which its description was “Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter im 1. Weltkrieg” which is translated to English is “Multiplayer tactical shooter in WW1”. The listing also reveals that the game will be released on October 26th.
We knew that DICE was working on a new format for the Battlefield series and it would once again take place in a military setting. This setting would make a great fit for the Battlefield series as the Hardline release did not impress many people.
The listing also lets us know that the game will be released for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. You can see a screenshot of the listing (provided by twitter user Doctor_Cupcakes) below. The listing has since been removed from the retailers website.
