The Next ‘Battlefield’ Will Be Set In Alternate History WW1

Thanks to a leak on Xbox Live this morning, we now know that the next title in EA’s Battlefield will likely be set in an alternate history version of World War I.

Additionally, thanks to a retail leak discovered by the Reddit community (where else?), there’s now confirmation that the game will be confusingly titled Battlefield 1. The leaked image features a giant zeppelin and a WW1-era trench club, among other details that seem to confirm the game’s WWI setting.

UPDATE: It looks like the game will be out October 18, 2016 and contrary to previous reports, it won’t be set in an alternate timeline (although the game isn’t exactly shooting for a realistic recreation of WWI either based on the trailer).
