Would make sense if it was WW1 based no?
There's already a naming convention though... Battlefield WW1 maybe, but Battlefield 1 is some XBOne stuff.

Just realized there is no actual BF1... that makes sense now.

If it is alternate history, I'm fine with that on one condition - no lock on bullshit tracking bollocks whatsoever. NONE!

Same if it's WW2. I want that 2143 they've been hinting at for ages. That or another modern shooter because, seriously, I'm sick of WW2. It's everywhere. Even if we haven't had a deluge of it in games, there's numerous documentaries and books and TV shows made about it. Go watch those for your WW2 fix. :/
You could play BF4, COD, Titanfall.

Lets wait and see what it's like, you never know, might be fun :)

Just finished watching Band of Brothers again so I would love it if it was WW2. WW1 is a close second though. :)

No thanks. I have Wolf if I want WW2.

The bigger question I have is: Will they fuck up Rush mode even more. I'm not hyped until I can play/see how badly they fucked that mode up a third time. That and/or they drop it and make Sabotage (er-"Obliteration") a main-mode this outing since those two were the only modes I played in BF4.

Where are these WW2 games? Ever since CoD 4 those games have been nowhere to be found. You want another modern shooter? There are PLENTY of those.

That's too bad. I think its pretty obvious by this thread that most of us are dying for something else. Another future or even modern setting would be an instant turn off for me.

I honestly think it will bomb if it's set in WW1.
I don't see the mainstream audience wanting it and defaulting to BF4

There hasn't been a AAA WW2 game in 8 years...

WW1 or WW2, I do not give a shit and will be buying this day one. I am just fed up off the yearly futuristic FPS games that have become regular now.

DICE/EA just won my respect by not playing the safe game and making a modern shooter again.

I'm guessing it's going to be a WW1/sci fi mashup. Think Harry Turtledove.

Actually that would suck.

Problem I have with WW1 is the lack of any interesting weapons or vehicles. I might be wrong but I'd rather see WW2 instead. I know I'll enjoy it regardless though :)

My point is, there's various media out there about WW2. Some of which are still being made. I'm sick of remembering a 80+ year old war. I'd rather focus on modern and/or future.

If they make it alternate history, great. But it's WW1/2 again, no thanks. I have no interest when there's 100+ other movies/TV shows/books about the war. Plus I could go play 1942 right now if I wanted a WW2 Battlefield.

I kind of want it to be based on WW1 purely out of curiosity. How would DICE apply World War I and it's combat tactics to their most popular mainstream first-person shooter? Right now that era is limited almost (entirely?) exclusively to less know, indie developed titles.

Alternate history, I suppose?

We all want back to the roots was games not that super sci to futuristic games halo Destiny new COD thats a turn off right there
Are you trying to tell me what I should want?

I don't feel the need for a game with the same mechanics but with skins of old weapons. Oh it's a biplane instead of a F22. A Zeppelin instead of helicopter.
If you're not on a horse with a swird, which would be huge departure of what we are used to but a nightmare to Balance, i honestly don't care.
