We all know Battlefield 5 is in the works. EA said as much, but has failed to provide details. One Swiss retailer, however, claims to know the setting.


According to a placeholder over on the World of Games website, Battlefield 5 is listed as a “multiplayer tactical shooter” set during World War 1. The listing has it slated for an October 26 release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

You can see the listing for yourself through here before it’s pulled. A couple images are posted below. Note the interesting placeholder box art which seems to be used for everything.

EA said during a financial call in January of this year Battlefield 5 was slated for a holiday 2016 release.

As far back as 2014, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said the shooter would be “a return to a Battlefield military-style game.”

Anyway, file this away as a rumor until the game is official announced.
