The Next Battlefield Isn't Bad Company 3, Despite Rumors

The Next Battlefield Isn't Bad Company 3, Despite Rumors

Another report addresses this week's rumors.

Earlier this week, YouTuber AlmightyDaq posted a video in which he claimed that the next Battlefield title would be Battlefield Bad Company 3. The YouTuber in question correctly reported details of Battlefield 1 ahead of time, so their information was treated as potentially correct. The video details a game based on the war in Vietnam, stretching to a period after the war. More importantly for fans, AlmightyDaq said that the game wouldn't have the same microtransactions as Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

In its own sourced report, Eurogamer contends that while Battlefield Bad Company 3 was an idea EA's studios were batting around, the game is not actively in development. Since the video, AlmightyDaq has slowly backtracked on his rumors. The video's title was changed to "Dice LA's Battlefield Leaked Insider Information", moving away from the 2018 claims.

"There are two games. I'm aware that DICE Sweden is WW2. That's what my next video is about. The one I leaked is DICE LA," AlmightyDaq told Eurogamer.

DICE LA is the former studio behind the Medal of Honor titles. It hasn't led on the development of a game since the launch of Medal of Honor: Warfighter in 2012. The Battlefield support studio taking the lead on an entry in the franchise would be abnormal.

In a new video, AlmightyDaq is now saying that Bad Company 3 is DICE LA's game and the next game from DICE proper in Sweden will be set in World War 2, like this year's Call of Duty. That is also just a rumor, so while it makes sense, I wouldn't expect too much right now. Take it with a grain of salt, like any rumor or report.
