2018's Battlefield game will be set in World War 2, a new Venturebeat report states.
Eurogamer sources close to the project have heard similar.
After being referred to by the name Battlefield 2 throughout development, an update to the above report states it has recently been given the final name of Battlefield V - which works both as Battlefield 5 and as a call-out to the famous V for Victory sign.
A WW2 setting comes as little surprise - last year's Battlefield 1 was a huge success, while last year's Call of Duty WW2 was... also a huge success.
And Venturebeat states this has been EA's plan all along - test the waters of a return to historical combat with WW1, before doubling down on the more well-known setting of WW2.
In December, Eurogamer squashed a report that this year's Battlefield would be Bad Company 3. Eurogamer sources close to the project told me the idea for Battlefield Bad Company 3 had existed, but was not in development.
