Battlefield 5 Police-Themed, Due In 2014
Battlefield 5 is allegedly codenamed Havana and will be released by EA in 2014.
After EA laid off staff at Ghost Games, the staff were reported to have been offered compensation or the opportunity to join Visceral to work on Battlefield 5, which is being released in 2014, sources told Polygon.
Battlefield 5 will allegedly have a police theme, making it something of a departure from the military fare we’ve come to expect from Battlefield. It is not clear if the codename ‘Havana’ has any relation to the game’s setting.
EA has confirmed that they have “entered a consultation period for some positions in our Ghost Games U.K. studio”, but did not offer any comment on the Battlefield 5 rumours.
