EA takes a new entry in the FPS franchise for this year off the table.

Don't hold your breath for a new Battlefield game this year. EA has announced that the next entry in the franchise won't be included in the company's fiscal year 2025 schedule, which runs from this April 1 to March 31, 2025.

Spotted by Battlefield Bulletin, EA CFO Stuart Canfield talked about the company's future during an earnings call for the third quarter of fiscal year 2024. "Looking beyond [fiscal year] 2025, over the next couple of years, we expect our net bookings growth to accelerate, bolstered by our portfolio of industry-leading IP," said Canfield, who's also an EA executive vice president. "Compounding growth within our core sports franchises, new content and engaging experiences across our massive online communities, and iconic new releases like Battlefield, Sims, and other in-development titles, provide the inflection point that fuels net bookings growth and increases underlying profitability."

Canfield doubled down on no new Battlefield until 2025 at the earliest later while responding to a question, as well. "And we've called out also that Battlefield is not in our [fiscal year] 2025 outlook," he said. The last installment was Battlefield 2042, which was released in 2021. It's still receiving updates as Season 6: Dark Creations launched last October for the game.

Back in 2021--after Battlefield 2042 came out--EA discussed building a "connected Battlefield universe"for the future. In addition, Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella was put in charge of overseeing the FPS franchise. Last year, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said the next Battlefield would be a "reimagination" of the series. It was also revealed that Burnout developer Criterion is working on the next Battlefield, too.
