Don’t expect a new Battlefield game for a couple years, as Electronic Arts noted in a conference call for its fiscal earnings today that the series is going to be taking a break.
EA said that there won’t be a new Battlefield until fiscal year 2022, which starts on March 31, 2021.
In the meantime, EA will focus on the hit free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends, which has reached over 70 million players.
The Battlefield series started in September 2002 with the launch of Battlefield 1942.
For the past several years, the franchise has produced a new entry every two years.
While that pace isn’t as intense as Call of Duty’s schedule of one new game every year, it still kept developer Dice busy.
