In an investor call earlier this week, EA CEO Andrew Wilson was asked if the company was considering releasing a Battlefield game every two years (via) VGC) “I think that’s our orientation, but more importantly, I think you should think of the battlefield as a service,” Wilson said.

“You know, what we’re doing for the launch of this game is really revolutionary and reimagining all of our epic scale combat in terms of gameplay,” Wilson told Battlefield Portal and Hazard Zone. Mode exposed as before continued. Will keep players busy for a long time. Wilson concluded, “So while launching every other year might make sense, if we think about it today, we’re really focused on 365-day engagement in the franchise at the platform level on any device.” ” .


If you’re unfamiliar with the history of EA’s shooter series, Battlefield had a more regular release schedule about a decade ago. Battlefield 3 launched in 2011, and Battlefield came out two years later in 2013. The spin-off game Battlefield Hardline will launch just a year later in 2014, followed by Battlefield 1 releasing in 2016 and Battlefield 5 launching two years later in 2018.

The obvious example is for the Battlefield series to release a game every two years, but Wilson’s comments do not point to a return to that entirely. The CEO clearly sees Battlefield Portal, a game mode where players can create their own mods and matches, something that can sustain players for a long time, extending the lifecycle of Battlefield 2042 by a year or two could.
