Battlefield: Bad Company 3 is reportedly released in 2018. The scenery would be set in a ‘mid and post’ Vietnam war. It’s mentioned that the game isn’t trying to be ‘historically accurate’ though.
YouTuber user AlmightyDaq is reporting that DICE’s 2018 Battlefield installment is actually Bad Company 3. The long-awaited sequel is rumored to be set in mid-to-post-Vietnam War, with some Cold War settings as well, though those connections may not be historically accurate. Conquest, Rush, Operations, Domination, and Team Deathmatch all will return for Bad Company 3.A 5v5-centric mode similar to Squad Obliteration will also be present in the game. The game modes confirmed so far are said to be Operations, Conquest, Rush, Domination, and Team Deathmatch. There will also be a mode similar to Squad Obliteration, pitting two teams of five against each other.
While this leak seems credible, nothing official has been announced just yet, ergo a grain of salt should be issued for now. A new Battlefield title is planned for 2018, but whether or not it will be Bad Company 3 remains to be seen.
