EA has stated in the past that it had no plans for annual Battlefield releases, but they certainly seem to be released with increasing frequency. In the past four years, three new Battlefield titles have been released with the most recent earlier in 2015. While no set date for this newest installment to the franchise has been given, EA did say earlier this year that it was looking for a 2016 holiday release.
In the meantime be sure to check out Battlefield 4 which has still been seeing fairly frequent DLC. The most recently released has been the “Night Operations” and “Community Operations.” The newest entry in the Battlefield franchise will also be returning to it’s military theme which it departed from in Hardline with the cops and robbers theme and DICE promises “More features. More extras. More Destruction.”
