Battlefield 5 Leaked, Possibly Set in World War I, Multiplayer-Focussed


It appears that Battlefield 5 has been leaked. Swiss retailer World of Games has the game listed on its site. This was unearthed by Youtuber Liam Robertson on Twitter earlier today.
The listing for what seems to be the next instalment in the long-running Battlefield series indicates that it will be out on October 26 this year. Needless to say platforms would include the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Additionally, users on gaming forum NeoGAF claim it might be multiplayer-focussed.
"Battlefield 5 for PS4/XB1/PC. Lists October 26 as a release date. It includes the description 'Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter im 1. Weltkrieg' which translates to 'Multiplayer tactical shooter in WW1'", reads a post by NeoGAF member Ondore.

However, a quick check of the description at the moment has any indication of it being a World War I shooter missing. This could possibly an error on the retailers side.
Battlefield publisher Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen said during the 2014 UBS Global Technology Conference that he'd seen the next entry in the first-person shooter series in development and believed it will be a "fun, new Battlefield."
"That will be a return to a Battlefield military-style game; more to come on that," he said at the time.
Barring Battlefield: Hardline which took place in a civilian backdrop, every other game in the series focused on military settings. With the gaming community growing tired of futuristic first-person shooters, and EA covering their quota of such with Titanfall 2, a World War I setting for the next Battlefield might not be such a bad idea after all.
Though we do hope that despite it being multiplayer-focussed, developer Dice includes more single-player content than what we've seen with another EA shooter
