Battlefield V Cancels Upcoming Competitive 5v5 Mode

DICE cancels Battlefield V’s upcoming 5v5 mode; says it was a “tough decision”.

Battlefield V has changed in many ways since it was launched, with updates having introduced many new gameplay modes. However, developer DICE has announced that one much-anticipated upcoming gameplay mode has been cancelled. Battlefield V had a 5v5 mode in the works but players should now no longer look forward to it.

In their latest Letters from the Front update, Battlefield V’s Senior Producer Ryan McArthur gave a statement on the current state of game, it’s new upcoming features and the reason for the cancellation of the mode. McArthur stated, “The added focus on improving the quality of the experience and adding more of the content you want has led us to step back from our original plans to offer a competitive 5v5 mode.”

McArthur continued “Not creating this mode was a tough decision, but vital for us to more quickly reach our bug-crushing and content goals.” It seems that they came to conclusion of cancelling the mode as they continued to work on the future of the game and realised they couldn’t fit it in their time frame.

This isn’t a good news for the competitive scene of Battlefield V, which has already seen quite a few setbacks in regards to content. However, it seems that DICE is still committed to the title despite the overall competitive environment for Battlefield V being relatively small in comparison to other games in the market.

Although this is some sad news (as the mode could have added new life into the game), it isn’t all bad. DICE seems to working on making the game better and will continue to add more modes to the title in future.

Are you upset about the cancellation of the new mode?
