EA Confirms Battlefield Title for 2016
GameInformer reported on EA confirming a new Battlefield title with a 2016 release window. Chief financial officer, Blake Jorgensen, commented on EA’s release strategy: “What we have said is that our intention over the next couple of years is to have a first-person shooter as one of the core titles,” he explained. “This year, obviously, it’s Star Wars Battlefront. Next year, it’s another Battlefield title.”
EA also reconfirmed Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, due out during the company’s final quarter in the fiscal year.
This news does not come as a surprise as Battlefield has been a numbered title for quite some time. Surprise or not, though, I am excited. I happened to love the fourth iteration and will be glad to immerse myself in a fifth.
