Battlefield V dev admits a battle royale mode would be a ‘natural fit’

Battlefield V developer DICE has admitted that having a battle royale mode in the upcoming shooter would be a 'natural fit,' though the company has nothing to announce just yet.

Rumours were fluttering around the web recently that the studio was prototyping the Fortnite-style mode for Battlefield V, but yesterday's reveal event made no mention of a battle royale option.

However, Senior Producer Andreas Morrel revealed that the chaps at DICE are 'very much fans' of gaming's latest craze, and that the studio 'definitely looking to see how Battlefield can explore the Battle Royale genre.'

'We've got the sandbox, we've got the vehicles, we've got the epic scale — it is a natural fit for us,' said Morrel.

While Battlefield V isn't apparently getting a battle royale mode, it will offer a bunch of new features, including the Combined Arms co-op mode and a new post-launch time sink called Tides of War. 

Battlefield V is due out on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 19.
