DICE Team Members Shifting Their Focus To Next Battlefield
Well, Star Wars: Battlefront is out the door and while DICE will still support it into 2016, part of the team has shifted their focus to a new project.
And that's Battlefield 5.
Development director Dan Vanderlind took to Twitter to offer a quick studio update, saying a part of the Battlefront team will remain intact to support DLC, but others - including himself - will start working on the next Battlefield entry.
Now that we've shipped Battlefront and a part of the team continues to work on it, I am moving on to another project, the next Battlefield..— Dan Vaderlind (@mrVaderdan) December 11, 2015
The last installment was Battlefield: Hardline, which shipped earlier this year. That one introduced a new theme (players assumed the role of police SWAT members) but EA has previously confirmed that the next Battlefield would return to its military roots.
Let's just hope the game is a lot cleaner than Battlefield 4, which was riddled with online issues for a very long time.
