It’s interesting how gaming trends come and go. World War games went out of vogue for a long time, and now it looks like they are coming back into demand. Battalion 1944 did really well on Kickstarter, and now it is looking like that was just the start. World War games are back.
Twitter user Liam Robertson captured a screenshot of a Swiss retail listing which revealed some information about Battlefield 5.
As you can see, a release date of October 26th, 2016 is listed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Look at the description, and you will see the words, “Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter im 1. Weltkrieg.” This translates to “A Multiplayer Tactical Shooter Set in World War 1.”
Shortly after the screenshot leaked, the store removed the reference to World War One. This may be an admission of truth, or it could mean that it was an error and needed to come out. Either way, at this point we are still guessing as to what we can expect with Battlefield 5.
