We’re not getting the Battlefield sequel we deserve

It’s been fifteen years since Battlefield last had mechs, which means it’s been about fifteen years since I last cared about Battlefield. With EA preparing to lift the lid on the next entry in DICE’s mass warfare shooter, my one question is the same as it ever was—will we see anything quite as special as Battlefield 2142?

The next Battlefield game is dipping its toes into the near future warzones of 2042, a very contemporary form of warfare that gestures into the future with robot dogs and climate catastrophe. But as chaotic as it all looks, I reckon Dice isn’t looking nearly far forwards enough. Let us go beyond 2042’s familiar skirmishes, and into the speculative ice age conflicts of the 22nd century.
