    Doubt it, they'll just likely rely on their report system again which takes weeks if not months for anything to happen.

    all the original battlefield creators have left. The studio is in terminal decline at the moment. From what I’ve read there’s no clear command structure, every manager believes in their vision and everything else jus put gets dropped while they work on stupid pet projects and updates while a atmosphere of fear and lack of guidance is rife throughout the company. No amount of feedback or data can sway them from what they believe is the right direction. There’s something rotten inside DICE at the moment, and I suspect it won’t be rooted out and those necessary pushed out the door before the next BF game. Which will also be a disaster.

    BFV is approaching 2 years old right? Surely we should be getting a rumour of what comes next?

    Next Battlefield game isn’t due until the end of 2021 so I doubt we’ll see or he anything until next year.

    Wonder what the big selling point will be in the next game? Transgender characters as an option? (interestingly that word is blocked in their chat filter). After all it's about making a statement and being on the "right side of history" rather than making a game. :rolleyes:

    I hope they go really crazy with the next one now that it's gonna be next-gen only and they have so much more hardware grunt to play with. Let's see some proper destruction physics!!

    Start of this vid, infantry combat at its finest.


    Meh, after this train-wreck i doubt many are eagerly anticipating the next game, remember when BF4 was released early filled with bugs and dice went on record saying it was something that would never happen again? They have a good release with BF1, then the very next game is a half finished early access title that was too early for even early access. Not all down to dice obviously, their supreme overlords at EA have the say when it gets released regardless of the devs opinions.

    I'm fully expecting the next game to be another rush release in time for the "holiday season", complete with 58 gender options and the inclusion of Furries.

    It's amusing the words that get censored in games. In The Division 2 if you try to name a load-out "Glass Cannon" it's listed as inappropriate.

    In bf v the words "but" and "sniper" are also censored. And of you have an in game name they consider offensive you cant make use of the chat system, you can type a message and hit enter but it wont appear. That's their recent update that introduced this level of stupidity.

    All this in a game where the players can audibly be heard cursing by default....:rolleyes:

    I don't get it. I really don't. Next it'll be games with rocket launchers that had hearts as rockets. Oh wait, Quake Champions does that.

    Do we really agree with him tho? I've recently started playing BFV again. And well yea it isn't perfect but is it fun for a few hours of messing about sure.

    What else does he want?

    A game that isn't littered with hackers would be a start.

    I knew when DICE released that first BFV trailer with the woman flying out of a building with purple makeup on her face and a robot arm that the game would be epic fail.

    I have zero interest in the next BF. The studio/developers are worlds apart now from the glory days of BFBC2 and BF3. The downward spiral really started with the horrible BF4 launch.. then BF1 was "OK".. and BFV a disaster.

    Not to mention dice do **** all about hackers, just out of a game where a tiger tank was 1 shotting every tank it was coming up against, even a single shot on my Churchill tank which isn't possible. The next game needs some form of anticheat, this reporting system is a farce, still running into people that were reported weeks back.

    At least with well run community servers, you didn't need dice to do much. EA took control of all servers from 3rd partys and then messed the whole thing up.
    Battlefield will struggle to recover from the last few releases, their ace card is of course still a BC3 game.
