2018's Battlefield game will be set in World War 2, a new Venturebeat report states.

V for... Victory? Vendetta?

Eurogamer sources close to the project have heard similar.

After being referred to by the name Battlefield 2 throughout development, an update to the above report states it has recently been given the final name of Battlefield V - which works both as Battlefield 5 and as a call-out to the famous V for Victory sign.

A WW2 setting comes as little surprise - last year's Battlefield 1 was a huge success, while last year's Call of Duty WW2 was... also a huge success.

And Venturebeat states this has been EA's plan all along - test the waters of a return to historical combat with WW1, before doubling down on the more well-known setting of WW2.

In December, Eurogamer squashed a report that this year's Battlefield would be Bad Company 3. Eurogamer sources close to the project told me the idea for Battlefield Bad Company 3 had existed, but was not in development.

Battlefield-focused YouTuber Levelcap chimed in to cast doubt on the original report of BC3. (It's an open secret that several Battlefield YouTubers are kept in the loop on DICE's upcoming plans.)

Amid the confusion, I contacted AlmightyDaq and surprisingly found that he was backtracking on his BC3 video.

"There are two games," he told me. "I'm aware that DICE Sweden is WW2. That's what my next video is about. The one I leaked is DICE LA." Bad Company 3 would not be 2018, after all.

[UKSF] PrivateSmokey Updated news ...
[UKSF] Tesla_The_Great I'm completely satisfied by BF4 tbh :) BF1 is a rubbish, so I wouldn't be so happy about this new BF 2018.


A new competitive Battlefield 1 experience developed in collaboration with the community.

There’s nowhere to hide. No way to retreat. 

5-versus-5 Focused Battles

Players can register now  for the Battlefield 1 Incursions Community Environment (formerly known as Alpha) and, once selected, can begin playing immediately. The Incursions Community Environment is available on Origin for PC only.

In Battlefield 1 Incursions (available on PC), tightly-focused maps set the field for intense, tactical matches designed to test the limits of your skill and teamwork at the highest level of competition. With the inclusion of Battlefield staples like soldier classes and vehicles, this is a frontier that draws from everything that makes Battlefield special.


Built in collaboration with the community, Battlefield 1 Incursions brings the authenticity of Battlefield 1 to a contained, small-scale battle. The uniquely designed tighter matches of Battlefield 1 Incursions make it more than just another mode. 


It wouldn’t be Battlefield without vehicles. Much like the Behemoths in the main Battlefield 1 experience, vehicles can turn the tide of a Battlefield 1 Incursions match. But they aren’t unstoppable, and destroying an enemy vehicle can be just as decisive as deploying one.

Strategic Depth

Your choices in loadout and role in your squad are critical, and every destroyed piece of environment can shift the entire momentum of battle. Only the sharpest strategic teams will rise to the top of the competition.

Epic Battlefield Moments

The impact of “Only In Battlefield” moments lands even harder as every point, every move, and every bullet becomes the difference between victory and defeat. Scoring has been overhauled to create opportunities for dramatic comebacks and nail-biting upsets.

Discover Battlefield 1 Incursions for yourself as it commences a new phase with the help of the community. Invitations will be limited, so register now for your chance to help define this new chapter for Battlefield.

The Battlefield 1 Incursions Community Environment (formerly known as Alpha) is part of the ongoing journey where the Battlefield 1 Incursions development team collaborates with the global Battlefield community to craft a long-term competitive experience.

Welcome to competitive — the Battlefield way.
