Henderson notes that DICE’s plans are subject to change. Games from the series often undergo big changes during production, but this information about the next installment of the series was received last week and he thinks that the general concept of the project will most likely be kept.

As she emphasizes, this direction of the series development makes sense. Battlefield 2042 introduced specialists, instead of general character classes. According to Henderson, such a solution was to prepare the ground for the brand’s transition to the hero shooter category, and the next edition will strongly develop this concept.

Let us recall that Battlefield 2042 debuted on November 19. The production was launched simultaneously on PC (both on Steam and Origin) and PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S consoles. People who purchased the Gold or Ultimate, they could have started the game a week earlier.
