[Tweaktown] New Battlefield to release by 2022 on PS5, Project Scarlett
"Today EA confirmed the next Battlefield game will release in its FY2022 timeline, which is from April 1, 2021 through March 31, 2022, firmly in the second year of next-gen consoles. No official details were announced, but EA did tout its investment in new development technologies so expect DICE's Frostbite engine to push next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Project Scarlett to its limits, complete with native ray tracing, 4K gaming, and high frame rate action."
I am actually quite happy EA/dice arent going to be releasing a new battlefield next year. it has become quite clear i think to a few developers that developing a AAA game in about 2 years is becoming harder and harder.
Im really trying to be hopeful that having an extra year means a more polished game. also, it being a year later will hopefully mean that it is developed solely for the ps5/xbox scarlett and not the ps4/xbox 1 which should simplify development.
I also hope its built in a modern/near future setting and actually can release content on more frequent basis. i know im a dreamer
