Is Battlefield 5 getting a Battle Royale mode?

Though EA hasn't official confirmed the name of the next instalment in the Battlefield series, it's rumored that full details are about to drop very soon. As well as a rumored Conquest mode, the latest news suggests that DICE is testing the waters with Battle Royale.

The Battle Royale mode has become incredibly popular in recent years with games like PUBG and Fortnite attracting millions of players. The mode involves players trying to survive to be the last man standing.

The rumor is unconfirmed, but with its rising popularity and EA rivals Activision allegedly getting in on the act for Black Ops 4, it makes perfect sense. Battlefield 5 is set to be shown off at the EA Play event ahead of E3 2018, where we’re expecting Sony to make some big announcements.
