The next Battlefield has had it’s reveal date leaked, and I mean exactly that. A door in Battlefield 1 that had been shut all year has recently been opened via a series of buttons that were patched in, and behind the door is a cell with a painting of a white horse.
There are also a set of pipes which actually drip in morse code, which can then be decoded to reveal a web address. That address is https://www.ea.com/neverbethesame which a plain page with the text “MAY 23, 2018 #battlefield”.
Do you see what they did there? Dripping pipes gave us the reveal date, it really did leak out. Excellent punning, EA.
Battlefield V, which apparently has had a numbering change recently as it was called Battlefield 2 for a long time, will be officially revealed on May 23rd. Eurogamer are reporting they have heard from sources that it’s set in WW2, and I have also heard from “people familiar with the project” that it’s WW2.
