A recent listing by an online retailer might suggest that the new Battlefield 5 could be set in World War 1.
The listing on a German retailer originally lists the upcoming shooter as “Multiplayer tactical shooter in WW1” when translated from German. It also reveals that the game might be releasing in October 2016
It has been known for a while that DICE has been working on an new entry in the Battlefield series, but beyond that we haven’t heard much about it.
WW1 would make a great setting and a welcome change from the slew of modern shooters that is flooding the market.
