Two months ago, talking about the future of Battlefield V, some representatives of DICE and Electronic Arts have admitted to have learned lhard lesson emerged from the scandal of microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront II, and promised to do not repeat the error during the development of the new title of Battlefield. It seems that the return to a more traditional approach is not limited only to this, however: Battlefield V in fact it will keep a single player campaign, unlike what the rival will do Call of Duty with Black Ops 4, which will focus fully on multiplayer and will introduce a battle royale mode.

To say it is Andrew Wilson, the EA CEO, in a investor speech. Wilson declares that Battlefield V will have "engaging single-player stories," even if multiplayer will retain a fundamental role. The use of the plural could suggest a structure similar to that of Battlefield 1, in which the player immersed himself in the first world war from the point of view of multiple characters. It seems likely that Battlefield V chose instead the Second World War as a setting.
