Senior producer Ryan McArthur said the game’s last “standalone update” will include “some new content, weapons, and game tweaks”.
DICE is targeting a June release for the update, although it could arrive later than hoped.
Following this summer’s update, Battlefield V will receive no new maps, weapons or factions, it confirmed.
“Libya is our internal codename for a map that features in this summer’s update,” DICE added.
The studio will then likely reallocate resources to the game’s sequel. EA said in October 2019 that the Battlefield 6 release date will fall between April 2021 and March 2022.
Released in November 2018, Battlefield V was the second consecutive series entry to focus on the World Wars of the early 20th century. Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 both focused on modern day military combat.
