Battlefield’s latest installment hasn’t done all that well online. It’s been a bit of a controversial release with fans. Regardless, the IP is quite iconic, and with each new installment, there is plenty of anticipation. While we just recently received the latest game, news and rumors are pouring out online about what the future holds. One of those rumors popping up right now suggests that we might see Battlefield turn into a hero shooter.
That might seem like a stretch to some fans. However, the rumor does come from a rather credible source. Tom Henderson is an industry insider who has a proven track record. When Tom posts anything on Twitter, quite a few players usually engage with the latest claims. Recently, the focus has been on Battlefield, and it looks like the next installment might become a hero shooter.
Tom tweeted out that the next installment will be a hero shooter of sorts. This will apparently dive a bit deeper into the roles of specialists. Those roles are present in Battlefield 2042, and that might be a sign that the developers were initially going towards a hero shooter route, to begin with. Of course, the direction might have changed, but these specialists are still present might be a small stepping stone towards where the IP is heading.
Again, this is just a rumor right now. While Tom Henderson is quite credible online, there are no official statements regarding the next Battlefield game at the moment. That’s likely to stay that way for a good long while since Battlefield 2042 just launched into the marketplace.
