This is probably total bollocks but I've had a thought.
I watched a video by Mr Frags after he got back from a jaunt to Stockholm in which he posed the question of what if instead of releasing a new game in two years, Dice instead continually worked on added content to and improved BFV over the next 6 years, following the wars progression in content year by year.
When I watched it I thought no chance, but a couple of things are making me wonder if Dice asked Jack to test the water on this idea by floating it in one of his vids.
1) People are saying that after the road maps release that we'll only be in 1941 by the years end. Dice aren't thinking of flying through 4 years of history and battles in the space of 1 are they?
2) The introduction of BR. I'm not the most knowledgable on this subject but I don't think traditional BR games change their entire format every 2 years. They add things to it and change parts of the map to keep it interesting but I imagine that part of the reason why BR games are so financially successful is that the main work goes into maintaining and adding improvements to an existing model, rather than building a new BR mode from the ground up every two years.
3) They're really taking their time with Boins. I figured EA would want to be hoovering up that dress up cash off the more fashion forward members right off the mark, instead they're really taking their time about it. Is it because their viewing BFV in terms of greater longevity?
I'm not sure how I'd feel about 6 more years, I like BFV but until the NetCode is sorted it's difficult to tell if it's a great game yet. But part of me loves the idea of following the course of the war over the years, it would be like an odyssey.
As well as having a game that is made great then perfected for years of true enjoyment. Following with a release of Battlefield 6 that launches in great shape as it's had the time to be fully developed, instead of going through this all over again in 2020.
Just wondering how the community would feel about a longer life cycle between games.
