EA Games may be adding a Battle Royale mode to its next Battlefield game, various other outlets are reporting. The mode is supposedly still being prototyped.


The introduction of a Battle Royale mode in the next Battlefield game is not surprising given the popularity of the mode. EA Games likely hopes to cash in on the success of the genre like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite already have.

According to the rumors, the mode will not be available in time for the game's scheduled October 2018 release and may be released separately via a title update.

It is unlikely that Battlefield's Battle Royale mode will bring innovation to the genre as rumors indicate the studio is investigating bringing a near identical copy to the game.
