5v5 Competitive Mode no Longer Coming to Battlefield V

Originally announced as part of the Battlefield V roadmap, the 5v5 competitive mode which would have two teams of five going up against each other was revealed to no longer be coming to Battlefield V today on Battlefield V’s official website. Ryan McArthur, Senior Producer for Battlefield V put out the following about the now-canceled 5v5 competitive mode;

The added focus on improving the quality of the experience and adding more of the content you want has led us to step back from our original plans to offer a competitive 5v5 mode. Not creating this mode was a tough decision, but vital for us to more quickly reach our bug-crushing and content goals. However, we will still pursue building a competitive gaming experience in Battlefield. We know that there’s already an existing competitive scene in our community, and we’re helping build features to support these communities. We want to work more closely with our players to help improve the tools that they have available to shape their play experience. This way, we can better support the places where competitive Battlefield V play already exists.

Ryan MacArthur, Senior Producer
