DICE signals end for new Battlefield 4 content

It's been a good run, soldier.

DICE has signalled the end of new content for first-person shooter Battlefield 4.

DICE LA, which has supported Battlefield 4 for a couple of years now with new maps and features, will not release any new content to the game's test environment.

Given DICE has tested new maps in the CTE before releasing them to the wider player base, the announcement suggests the end for new Battlefield 4 content.

It comes as no surprise to learn that EA has switched focus from the two-and-a-half year old Battlefield 4 with Battlefield 5 looming over the horizon.

The news has been met with acceptance from the Battlefield community, which praised EA for supporting the game for so long, and for turning it around after a disastrous launch amid the release of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Battlefield 4 still enjoys a sizeable player base across all platforms - and often pulls in bigger numbers than the more recently released Battlefield Hardline.

With E3 set for June, we expect it won't be long before EA announces Battlefield 5.
