EA DICE has decided to finish up its work on Battlefield 5, as mentioned on their official website. A new update will be released this summer with some new content, but no chapter expansions will be added. Battlefield’s twitter handle confirmed this in a reply to a twitter user @T4rvos:
Correct, and we'll have more details about what's included in the summer update closer to that time.

Fans of the game can expect more details about what’s to come in the planned June update soon. Meanwhile, DICE has said that the new update will be a standalone update which will include some new weapons, content and game tweaks. The current Chapter of Battlefield V, Into the Jungle, will be ending on April 29, 2020.
In the post written by senior producer Ryan McArthur, he said that players will receive Battlefield Currency or Company Coin as Weekly Rewards. This will give players the opportunity to unlock the gear that they have missed, so that’s some good news.
There will also be weekly events and activities for the community such as Throwback Thursdays and #FridayNightBattlefield server reintroduction. The team is also working on Community Games Updates but the it is not known when it will be live. Apart from these, EA DICE has confirmed that its current chapter will be, unfortunately, its final chapter.
Battlefield’s twitter has shared one more sneak peek into what’s coming in the next update.
It’s a map which has the internal codename of Libya. More details about this map is expected during the announcement about the next update.
A new Battlefield game is coming between April 2021 and March 2022 to next-gen consoles, so it’s highly likely that they are wrapping up Battlefield V to work on the next game.
