World War games seem to be coming back in fashion this year. First we saw the immensely successful Kickstarter campaign for Battalion 1944 and now we’ve some news that might be huge for World War gaming enthusiasts.
According to a Swiss retail listing (as spotted by Liam Robertson), Battlefield 5 is real and is set in World War 1 setting. Not only that it is releasing on October 26, 2016.
The listing described the game as being a “Mehrspieler Taktik Shooter im 1. Weltkrieg” – a multiplayer tactical shooter set in World War 1. However, the retailer removed the World War 1 part later on.
If this listing turns out to be true, this is going to be a complete 360 degree turn for the franchise.
