It’s been announced that DICE has cancelled the plans of a 5v5 competitive mode in Battlefield 5.
The game’s senior producer Ryan McArthur was the one to reveal the cancellation of 5v5 competitive mode in Battlefield 5.
A statement by McArthur said: “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. Not creating this mode was a tough decision, but vital for us to more quickly reach our bug-crushing and content goals. However, we will still pursue building a competitive gaming experience in Battlefield.
“We know that there’s already an existing competitive scene in our community, and we’re helping build features to support these communities. We want to work more closely with our players to help improve the tools that they have available to shape their play experience. This way, we can better support the places where competitive Battlefield V play already exists.”
Other information was provided by McArthur including announcements regarding a September update with him revealing that players can expect the Operation Underground map on Conquest, Team Deathmatch, Breakthrough, and Squad Conquest.
