It might as well not have one based on how awful the campaigns for BF3/BF4/BF1 were.

Is it crazy to think that the drop off could be partially due to the fact that people still like and are satisfied with BF1 and aren't looking for anything new from them right now?

 

I'm being honest here.  Sometimes, even gamers can live within their own economy and say, "yeah, I can keep going with the underwear I have.  It works.  No need to spend on anything new."

Yeah really BF was a special franchise that didn't need to have a yearly iteration.

There...right there, Keyser.  Thank you.  The word "special" is very appropriate.  I was honestly a little surprised when I heard BFV was even coming out, or rather, coming out so soon.

 

...also as of the last few years, more than any other genre, I think shooters have to be careful with fatigue with respect to their customers.

 

I am ridiculously  fired up for the next Halo game.  Sure, because it appears as though they are going to be doing something different, but more so because it is time.

Wonder if they'll delay it until March. I mean it's EA and they're stupid, so probably not, but maybe they should.

Man I should have played more BF1. I liked that game. Not as much as 4, but it was still good. 

 

Nowadays all the devs are chasing their Fortnite / Overwatch / DOTA style forever game. It’s interesting to see that contrasted with companies essentially doing the opposite with the yearly franchise thing.

Not crazy at all. People are still plenty happy with BF4, especially after BF1 came out with its weird  vehicle spawns, horses and bayonets instead of Abrams and advanced rifles, and don't forget the Dice tradition of six months of buggy, janky gameplay. BFV looks to continue that trend.

The name alone will keep it from Titanfall sales status.

 

For the record, we are all in agreement, though, that Titan Fall 2 got needlessly and shamelessly f***ed by EA, right?

Yes.  Titanfall 2 might be the best game from an EA team this generation.

Loved it, AD...loved it.

 

What a freaking crime by EA, committed in the broad day light of the holiday season.

Yup... I remember playing that and Doom back to back within a week of each other. Two of the best FPS Campaigns I've played in a long time.

All the DLC these games have usually kill my excitement for the next game. If I stick with the game all year I'm not exactly excited and jumping at the heels to go preorder the next game.

I hope this doesn't hurt the Battlefield franchise. To be honest I still play BF4 cause the community is still alive. I bought BF1 due to how fun BF4 was but to be honest, I don't think I've played BF1 for more than 3 hours because BF4 is just that much a good game. I think when the BF4 community dies off whether naturally or EA forces us out, then I will play the game I bought in BF1 that I haven't really played. 

 

Like it was said above, it would be wise for EA to push the date of release but putting wise and EA in the same sentence is not logical.

First, Hurdy, I love that you stick to Batman.

 

Second,...man...I don't think I have ever played BF4.  If it is on EA Access I will give it a try.

Say what you want about the COD franchise but Activison has that online multiplayer running p’ damn good on day one.

The funny thing is that I was never a fan of first person shooters that used real people or I should say humans cause it kind of made light or war to me. I've always appreciated fps like Halo or Doom. When I wanted to get the PS4 day one, I had to get a bundle and the one that came with BF4 seemed to be the most attractive. The game has been noted for the issues it had during launch but Dice fixed it and I couldn't put the game down. The visuals, the gunplay, and environmental  destruction makes it a winner.  Do give it a try.

BF1 sucked balls compared to BF4, which sucked balls compared to BF3, which sucked balls compared to BF2. 

 

BF5 does look a lot better than BF1, but I'm not surprised that people are hesitant. I am going to buy it, but I'm not pre-ordering unless I get some really sweet incentives.

If you have a PC, get Origin Acess Premiere. 100 bucks for all EA games for a year and you get the best versions of all games. More than enough value there to get your fix of BF, sports games, Anthem, and everything in the vault.

Removing the lock on Doritos and Supression is the only thing BF5 has going for it. Everything else is terrible.

 

Even if they hadnt messed with some core BF principles I still dont preorder shit.

 

 

 

 

Also wouldnt preorder cause I dont need no Dames or Skirts cloggin up my war zone with the hormones !

I never pre-order BF games cause the following:

1) I need to see if it sucks or not.  I disliked BF3 but liked BF4.

2) Why get it day one when you know their servers are gonna be hosed
