UPDATE: Discord Listing is fixed

What's going on with Battlefield V?

These are desperate times... we got COVID-19 roaming around, we're all stuck at home, and to make it all worse... EA is stopping all development on BFV?!

It came as a surprise to most of us. Let's have a look at what the Ryan McArthur, Senior Producer at EA announced.

 

"As we look into the future, we will release one more standalone update this summer that brings with it some new content, weapons, and game tweaks."

Again, this came as a shock for most of us, but why is this happening? Why did BFV fail so hard?

 

Battlefield™ V for PC | Origin

 

Well, the initial release trailers didn't really help with the hype too much. The official reveal trailer's like/dislike ratio is horrible. 351K likes and 546K dislikes...

Have a look for yourself! 

 

 

At first it wasn't bad, but it could've done a lot better. Especially the campaign and a few of the multiplayer maps. But when EA released War in the Pacific, it got a lot better. The game improved, and saw a larger influx of players. These maps were a success and helped BFV hold on for just a bit longer, but EA is still a business, in it for the money. So if a game like this fell through so hard, what's the point of putting more money into it just so you can lose it again?

 

Anyways, that's an extremely brief recap of the game's life. So what's next for battlefield? Well we got some new content, as Mr McArthur said and we got a screenshot of a map here: 

 

Battlefield V will receive its final new content update this ...

There has been a bit of speculation around where this map is located. It's clearly in the desert, probably Libya or somewhere similar.

Here's some more information of what's to come in the next month or so:

So if you're a casual player in BFV, you'll know this stuff has started already, excluding the #FridayNightBattlefield or Throwback Thursdays. 

 

So it looks like this is the end of BFV. Now we gotta look forward to BF6, looking to be released in 2021... what will that be like?

... i'll add that our Battlefield Division has our plan in place, taking us on past the summer, thru the new consoles coming out and prepping for a smooth transition to BF6.

 

Despite the lack of new development to BFV after summer, this is a great time to be in Battlefield. The leadership opportunities are substantial, as we will fill-out two new brigades this fall, in addition to retaining our legacy console brigades.

It is very sad to see what has happened to this game. BFV had a lot of potential especially since it takes place in WW2, but unfortunately they had to cut the game short. Luckily BF6 is being worked on and I hope that it is very good 👍

I feel Battlefield 5 failed mainly due to the lack of a clear vision and the ability to execute that vision. We were promised things on release like Firestorm that we didnt get until later, we were told the game would progress with the timeline of the war, which it didnt, and half of their weapons on relese were guns from BF1. Add to that the fact that the community has yearned and pleaded for good private servers like in BF4, and we barely got them in BF1 in the second half of the game, and then in BFV we were told we wouldnt get them, and then when we did they werent that great either. The team balancing, squad sizes, TTK, poor handling of issues, and the constant focus on weekly weapons and skin unlocks and micro transactions, rather than focusing on large DLC's... all further contributed to the game being a lump of disappointment for many, not because its a bad game, but because it had so much potential that never came to frutrition. It had the potential to be the best BF game yet, but it constantly fell short, the Pacific DLC was a huge step in the right direction but then we got slapped with the news that after June, were not getting anything again.
