Is 'Battlefield 5' Going To Be A World War I Shooter?

Battlefield 5 to Take Place During World War I

Obviously, this listing should be taken with a pinch of salt until EA officially confirms the next Battlefield game, likely during E3 in June. The interesting part is the description of the game which is listed as "Multiplayer tactical shooter in WW1".

The heyday of the FPS was deeply intertwined with the World War II setting, where Battlefield 1 and 2, as well as Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, and a plethora of shooters cut their teeth.

Now, Battlefield hasn't always been set in a modern warfare scenario, which fans of the game will probably know.

The listing conforms with previous rumours of this year's Battlefield release, which proposed the game will be the fifth entry in the core Battlefield series, set in a military environment.

History lesson aside, before anyone gets excited about a new World War I video game or Battlefield 5 in general, let's reiterate that this is just a rumor, and listings have certainly been inaccurate before.

At the same time, DICE is also working on expanding the experience offered by its more recent Star Wars Battlefront, which has recently received the free update for February, which features both new maps for certain modes and tweaks for the balance.

We expect the listing to be taken down shortly but for now the game is viewable for Playstation 4 and Xbox One, as well as the PC.

"That will be a return to a Battlefield military-style game; more to come on that", he said at the time. Battlefield 5, if it is set in World War I, could see players fighting over the Somme, Verdun, the Battle of the Frontiers, they could explore the naval battles taking place between Britain and the Ottoman Empire near the Battle of Gallipoli, recreating the Battle of Jutland and so on. What we didn't factor in was the possibility of a World War I setting.

It appears that Battlefield 5 has been leaked.
