After a year and a half, it looks like Battlefield V will be receiving its final major update this summer, with its latest Chapter Into the Jungle wrapping up April 29.
There will be one last Chapter update, Chapter 7, that will bring "... some new content, weapons, and game tweaks" to the game, with June as its targeted release date.
There's not much to go by on the update itself. Just that it's coming, that there will be some weekly rewards to unlock some gear, and some events and activities such as the reintroduction of #FridayNightBattlefield servers where players "... can play Battlefield V in a friendly atmosphere."
EA DICE is still working on anti-cheat for the game, with their anti-cheat team working "daily" to try and make the game as fair as possible. EA won't go into detail about the anti-cheat in order to prevent cheating from becoming worse, which is good, I guess. They also ask players to report cheaters wherever they seem them, and to enable additional account security in order to protect their own accounts.
Battlefield V has been such a trainwreck since it was announced that it's a miracle that it's lasted this long. The fact that people are playing it still and that it's been receiving updates for nearly two years is a miracle, especially when considering how bland and mediocre the game turned out to be. Hopefully, the next Battlefield will be something special, but considering how long its been since a good Battlefield game came out (7 years) I'm not too hopeful. At best the next game is going to be like Battlefield V: a momentary diversion until people realize how bland Battlefield has become while trying to chase (and become) Call of Duty.
