Report: Battlefield 5 to Release in 2016

A report from brokerage firm Stern Agee has been released today that predicts EA will push back the release of Battlefield 5 to 2016. Stern Agee predicts the 2016 release mainly because they think EA may want to avoid franchise fatigue with Hardline due out for release in March. More still, the publisher may not want to take emphasis away from their Star Wars Battlefront reboot and finally, EA wants to put more emphasis on the development of 5 after the chronic technical issues with 5 and lukewarm early reception of Hardline.
