DICE Testing Battle Royale Prototype in Battlefield V

However, the caveat is that it won't be ready for release if and when it does debut, so it will likely launch as a DLC or free game pack further down the line.

It appears the Battlefield franchise may not be the only well-established FPS series to potentially feature a battle royale mode. Well, let's be real for a moment, who isn't trying to ideal the battle royale formula that led to global success for games like Fortnite and PUBG?

In fact, the source claims that EA could still cancel the prototype, keep it for the following Battlefield or next Star Wars: Battlefront sequel, or spin it off into its own game.

Having a single mode in an already-established franchise is certainly less of a risk than a standalone game, but let's hope that DICE brings something new to the table with its take on the battle royale genre. According to the rumor, DICE is prototyping a battle royale mode for the forthcoming Battlefield 5 release later this year but the feature remains in testing and may or may not be included in Battlefield 5. The mode involves players trying to survive to be the last man standing. Are you excited for the series to invest a popular mode like the battle royale, or would you rather DICE exclusively invest in making Battlefield V the best it can be without it? A modern-day Battlefield title with a battle royale mode might suffer somewhat from the presence of advanced weaponry. Black Ops 4 is reportedly due for the mode, it's been a strong component of The Division 2 rumours, and a new report suggests the next Battlefield will soon follow suit. What do you think about a battle royale for Call of Duty and Battlefield? Let us know in the comments.
