Battlefield V Cancels Competitive 5v5 Mode Which Was Initially Promised

EA and DICE have been working hard towards making Battlefield a more competitive based game and a serious contender for e-sports to no avail, recently they confirmed that the 5v5 mode which was promised earlier will not be delivered.

Battlefield series works great on its own but has struggled to be a part of a more competitive world with other games dominating the scene as they are much more suited for them.


Battlefield V Senior Producer Ryan McArthur apologized for canceling the 5v5 mode which would have players battle it out in a deathmatch scenario. Instead, the developers are working towards making Battlefield better without issues and bugs which have troubled the progress of the game.

Ryan McArthur said, “The focus on improving the quality of the Battlefield V experience and adding more of the content you want has led us to step back from our original plans to offer a competitive 5v5 mode. Not creating this mode was a tough decision, but vital for us to more quickly reach our bug-crushing and content goals. However, we will still pursue building a competitive gaming experience in Battlefield. We know that there’s already an existing competitive scene in our community, and we’re helping build features to support these communities. We want to work more closely with our players to help improve the tools that they have available to shape their play experience. This way, we can better support the places where competitive Battlefield V play already exists”.

Battlefield V is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
