Battlefield V could include some original maps of Battlefield 1942. This was revealed by Aleksander Grøndal, the executive producer at DICE, in response to a question from a fan on Twitter. The statement does not expose too much, but it is more than likely that, in some way, something of Battlefield 1942 will be re-proposed with the graphics engine of the new Battlefield V.
It would not be the first time that maps of Battlefield 1942 are remastered/repurposed on subsequent chapters of the franchise. Wake Island is the most famous example, available on Battlefield 2, Battlefield 3 and many other chapters. The Twitter user’s request spoke explicitly of Omaha Beach and El-Alamein, but it is clear that the plans of DICE cannot be taken for such maps.
Despite having received an average positive reception, Battlefield V did not convince the whole community of the series with its first trailer. In light of some news, such as the ability to customize your character in many ways and even to choose female characters, some fans believe that the title may lack historical loyalty.
Recall that the development of Battlefield V has almost come to an end, despite some controversy over historical accuracy. The title was officially presented just a few days ago and will be available for everyone on October 19, 2018, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
