From the Electronic Arts Q3 2018 Earnings Conference Call today comes news about the new Battlefield game which was confirmed earlier.
EA CEO Andrew House briefly spoken about the next iteration in its popular multiplayer shooter series saying that players can expect “astonishing visuals and gameplay”.
So far, all we know about the next Battlefield game is that the release date is pinned down for 2018 and has pushed out the planned release of the developer’s new IP, Anthem which will now launch in 2019, presumably for PS4, Xbox One and PS4.
Further details of the next iteration in the Battlefield series will be revealed later this year.
A press release was sent out during the call regarding other EA activity.
“Players enjoyed hundreds of millions of hours in our games across console, mobile and PC during the holiday quarter, and we're thrilled to see our titles driving excitement for more fans around the world, We're expanding the reach of our top franchises across more geographies, our competitions are growing in participation and viewership, and we're continuing to grow our network with more amazing games and content coming this quarter and beyond.”
