According to what was reported by Battlefield Russia, the game in question would be Bad Company 3, Battlefield 2018 would instead be a codename to avoid immediately revealing the true origin of the project. Abbas Alrubaie (a DICE developer) wrote on his Twitter profile, Battlefield V and Battlefield: Bad Company 3 are actually the same title!
The rumor was spread by an alleged employee of DICE, apparently also followed by the official account of Battlefield, however, the message has been removed and the membership of the insider to the development team appears in doubt.
