And, if you speak "DICE" you'll know that "re-evaluate" is how they describe things that are being canned before they officially announce it. A bit like how 5 v 5 was being "re-evaluated".
Honestly, I'm so disappointed in DICE, I thought Firestorm could be the saving grace of Battlefield V but they don't have the talent to update Firestorm like other Battle Royales are able to do. What annoys me the most is the lack of communication, why wait until the very end up chapter 4 to announce that something that was advertised to be in chapter isn't arriving (respawn/new looting). Now they don't even have the balls to tell us Firestorm is canned, they will only hint at it.
So there you have it, the most poorly managed AAA game studio puts out the most poorly managed Battle Royale, and then they wonder why BFV hasn't been a booming success.
