EA’s Battlefield 1 has been one of the most successful first-person shooters of the year. Selling millions of copies worldwide, and has thousands of fans playing the game daily.
With all the success the game has had this year, fans were expecting a new Battlefield in 2017. However, EA’s chief financial officer, Blake Jorgensen, confirmed that the developers have no plans of releasing a new Battlefield game any time soon.
Jorgensen confirmed that EA will not be releasing a new Battlefield game in 2017. In an interview with Digital Trends, Jorgensen said that DICE will continue to focus on Battlefield 1 and iron out all the issues and bugs before taking the next step.
EA is also currently working on the new Star Wars game which is set to come out next year. Star Wars Battlefront II will be EA’s main focus going into 2017. Regardless of it being an old game, EA is also working on Battlefield 4 which came out in 2013. They are working on fixing all the bugs and issues that the fans have been complaining about.
2016 has been a very good year for EA, as both of their games, Battlefield 1 and Titanfall II, saw great success. Regardless of the disappointment that was the original Titanfall, Titanfall II was one of the best first-person shooters of 2017. The fast-paced action packed shooter gave fans something different from the usual first-person shooters.
