EA's CFO, Blake Jorgensen, confirmed that there will be a new Battlefield game in 2016. This news came during a recent investor call after he was questioned on future titles from the company.
"What we've said is that our intention over the next couple of years is to have a first-person shooter as one of the core titles. This year it's Star Wars: Battlefront. Next year, it's another Battlefield title."

There is no saying just what the new Battlefield game will be or when it will take place. The obvious rumor is that it will serve as a sequel to Battlefield 2142. Others have suggested that the new game will be some odd combination of WWI and WWII era fighting. This year will be Star Wars: Battlefront, in case you had somehow forgotten about that.
