One of EA’s most successful products is the Battlefield series which offers large maps, tactical gameplay and astounding sound effects. It’s often perceived as a more authentic military reproduction compared to Call of Duty and continues to attract a large following. Sadly, Battlefield 4 suffered from horrendous launch bugs on PC, and EA’s Battlefield Premium service incurs a hefty cost if you want to access the game’s full map package. Nevertheless, Battlefield 4 is still a visually stunning title with great gunplay.

The franchise was temporarily put on hold to give DICE to time to create Star Wars: Battlefront. Now that the game has been released, DICE can move onto their next project which according to Development Director, Dan Vaderlind is the next Battlefield:

It’s unclear if this refers to Battlefield 5, or a new Bad Company game. Whatever the case, it’s not surprising to see another Battlefield game being made and I hope it’s not as shallow as Star Wars: Battlefront. Honestly, Star Wars: Battlefront feels rushed and isn’t up to the usual standard I expect from DICE. Hopefully, the next Battlefield game can help restore their reputation and showcase their mastery in the first-person-shooter genre.

Do you think the Battlefield series has been spoilt by EA’s premium service?
