Battlefield V 5v5 Game Mode Cancelled
The Battlefield franchise has evolved to be able to provide players with massive warzones instead of the traditional small scale deathmatch type game modes. Unfortunately, this model doesn’t necessarily make it easy for players to play in a competitive environment quite as well. While DICE EA had planned on bringing an awesome Battlefield V 5v5 game mod to the game, sadly, it seems as though these plans have since been canceled.
The newest “Letters From the Front” update from DICE reveals details concerning the current state of the game as well as where the developers are planning to go from here. Senior Producer Ryan McArthur explains that the team felt it necessary to take a step back and halt progress on the upcoming competitive 5v5 mode in order to maintain their focus in other directions such as improving the overall experience that the game can provide.
The added focus on improving the quality of the experience and adding more of the content you want has led us to step back from our original plans to offer a competitive 5v5 mode. Not creating this mode was a tough decision, but vital for us to more quickly reach our bug-crushing and content goals.”
There was no mention of whether or not the developers would be looking at working on a smaller, more competitive game mode in the future but it’s safe to say that for the time being fans won’t be seeing anything of the sort. The state of the game update also revealed that fans will soon be able to take the fight into some new infantry only maps, as well as a reimagined classic: Operation Underground. New maps aside, a majority of the developers’ attention will be aimed at fixing various bugs and issues in the hopes of making the overall gameplay experience better.
