DICE is preparing the final content drop for Battlefield V, the studio's latest online shooter that released in 2018 with the Games as a Service moniker. The announcement arrived today on the official Battlefield series blog. The currently running Into the Jungle chapter of updates will come to an end on April 29, and soon after, the final content update will reach the game before development winds down.
This standalone update is currently planned to arrive in June, and while DICE wasn't detailed on what it will contain, it said "new content, weapons, and game tweaks" will be included. We should be seeing the introduction of a new map if the screenshot (seen below) on the announcement post is anything to go by. That June release may be pushed back, however, as the development team is working from home and may run into challenges.
Following the update, weekly rewards of Battlefield Currency and community events will continue to be rolled out to keep active players engaged. DICE added that updates to the custom community servers as well as anti-cheat efforts will be continuing also.
Moving Battlefield V into maintenance mode like this should certainly mean the next Battlefield game is now in full production. It still could be a long wait before EA and DICE make any official announcements though, and it's anybody's guess on when will the game be set.
