Rumour Mill: Visceral’s New Battlefield Is “Police Themed”

id-05-visceral

The EA Ghost team responsible for the excellent Need For Speed: Rivals have fallen on pretty hard times as of late. A lot of the staff are being let go due to financial troubles. However, some new information has come to light from this unpleasant news. Rumours have come from some pretty reputable sources within the company that Battlefield 5 is being developed by Visceral Games, the team behind the Dead Space franchise.

What this means is that the future of Need For Speed is up in the air. But light at the end of the tunnel as the so-called Battlefield 5, codenamed ‘Havana’ could be getting an entirely new makeover as a police themed shooter. There is not much else to fuel the fire that are these rumours, but the sources are reputable enough that this cannot be overlooked.

It should also be noted that listings for job roles such as UI Artist, VFX Artist, and Senior Environment Texture Artists for an ‘exciting new IP’ have appeared on the EA Careers page. Take from that what you will. A new Battlefield? Or something so much more?
