Just a few months ago, VentureBeat reported that DICE’s 2018 Battlefield game would be titled Battlefield V and will take place during World War II. Today, EA has officially confirmed this report.
On the official Battlefield website, EA and DICE put out this statement:
“The next chapter of EA DICE’s groundbreaking all-out war saga is Battlefield V. Tune in on May 23 for a first look into how your epic journey with Battlefield V will be. On the Battlefield V Live Reveal, the team developing the game will share their vision.”
Our first look at the next installment of the hit first-person shooter will be coming May 23rd at 4 PM EST.
Trevor Noah, the host of The Daily Show, has confirmed via Twitter that he will be hosting the reveal event.

It is important to note that neither EA or DICE have revealed the time period Battlefield V will take place in. Although we don’t know anything yet about its setting, it has been confirmed from EA that Battlefield V will feature a single-player campaign. That statement is surely a shot at Treyarch’s upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which has reportedly thrown out their planned single-player campaign for more focus on multiplayer, zombies, and a brand-new battle-royale mode.
In the VentureBeat report, which is turning out to be accurate barring a shocking announcement next week, Jeff Grubb (author of the article) claimed that the Battlefield V single-player would be strikingly similar to Battlefield 1.
Not only will we be receiving our first look at Battlefield V May 23rd but the game will also be at E3 2018. For all of the conference times and games confirmed to be at this year’s E3, click here.
