Following up on 2016's Battlefield 1, EA now says it is working on the next entry in the franchise for a 2018 release. As reported by Battlefield Bulletin, EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed the news in the company's first quarter fiscal year 2018 earnings call.
The latest entry in the series, Battlefield 1, launched last year as brutal venture into the carnage of World War I. The game was generally well received and has gained quite a bit of new content since release.
The theme and setting of 2018's Battlefield are still a mystery, and it'll likely remain that way for some time. Battlefield 1 still has a few expansions left, and EA likely won't want to take the spotlight off of it so soon.
Update 2/1/18: In a recent earnings call, EA confirmed that a new Battlefield game would launch in October 2018.
