More speculation that the next Battlefield will be set in the World War era.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, game producer Joe Brammer posted that he’s seen “BF5 things”, and was “beyond excited.”

Unsurprisingly, this opened the floodgates for a torrent of eager fans asking questions, so he deleted the tweet, saying, “My phone, apple watch, and desktop notifications were all going crazy, and you ask too many questions! Tweet gone ha…clearly a mistake on my part! A massive oversight on the desperation for squeezing information!”

Aside from the mention of having seen something to do with Battlefield 5, his comments have lent further credence to the rumours of a World War era setting for the game to some, as Brammer is the executive producer of World War 2 shooter, Battalion 1944. The period is his specialty.

Last month, Battlefield 5 was listed by a Swiss retailer as a “multiplayer tactical shooter” set during World War 1, with an October 26 release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and back in 2014, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said the game would be “a return to a Battlefield military-style game.”
