I never bought Battlefield 1 myself so I'm interested to see where they take it next.

BF1 was the best I've played in 10 years. Great game. Very excited to hear more about the next one.

If it's not WW2 themed I'll be genuinely surprised.

Dunno my money is on non ww2 themed at this point. I'm going to say it's a return to 2142 type days.

I'd say that the last few COD games would make them very cautious about anything too futuristic but then again thats 2 different gaming crowds. I'd honestly welcome either a historic or future one.

I'd agree. I know I'll likely buy it anyway whatever period they release. I'm kinda half thinking that they'll put out a cheapo-quik release this time out and go big again for BF2020 instead.

Dunno.

After the success of BF1 it's going to be hard to top that.

I think that they will do WW2, a lot of the technology of BF1 could easily be re-used - the deformation of the landscape etc.

I would be tempted by it too, I have to say. I appreciate what BF1 is, but while I have enjoyed what I have played it hasn't really grabbed me - perhaps I have come to it too late or perhaps it is just that I no longer enjoy deathmatch games. Something that riffs on my enduring love of BF1942 though is something that might tempt me in on Day 1.

I can imagine that Market Garden, Tobruk, El Alamein etc would translate well into the BF1 engine. Wake Island would also be a must :)

Is BF5 the official title then I wonder? If it is then I'd expect the setting to be modern day seeing as 2,3 and 4 all have been.

Well it definitely isn't the fifth Battlefield game.

I believe it's a direct sequel to BF4, heading towards the mechs, railguns and hover tanks from the last dlc. A buildup to a new BF 2142.

*pop*

That was my interest evaporating like a morning mist on a sunny day.

How do people still support EA at this point? Is it just a case of "I know there terrible but I sincerely like the games they make once you ignore all the DLC and Micro-Transactions" or do people work off of another basis?

Sincerely asking.

Speaking personally, I don't support or boycott anyone. I just buy games that I think I will enjoy.

Don't misunderstand Tank, I will vote with my wallet whenever I feel the urge - P2W and loot crates can go swing, if a load of DLC is expected I will hold my money until it buys something complete and worthwhile. I don't have a shit-list of companies though.

Same here, I buy BF games because I enjoy them. The fact EA is the publisher isn't a factor at all.

Randy Pitchford seems to be a bit of a twat, will this stop be buying Borderlands 3? Not at all.

It's the balancing act of do you like the game enough to buy it or just skip it all together if you don't like something about either dev's/publisher or other bullshit tacked on to it.

Some things you can push aside but others I just find that they taint the games to leave that horrid after taste. Also that new game smell fades off certain publishers titles really quickly and I get buyers remorse.

But hey I don't mind the pretty good savings (£50 or whatever wankery they want for it) of not buying these games and can dip into a lot more different indie titles.
