I believe it is pretty safe to say what the theme for E3 2018 is going to be.

Although the mode is said to be only in the prototyping stage at the moment, VentureBeat has it that the game mode will likely be a part of the next Battlefield game.

Tentatively titled Battlefield V, the first person shooter is expected to arrive on Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year, with a reported World War II setting.

She died of blunt impact trauma to her head, neck and torso, according to the Philadelphia Department of Public Health. Air whooshed through the cabin, and snow-like debris floated down the aisle as oxygen masks dropped from the ceiling.

It's possible that the mode might not make it into the final product, or that it could make it into another of DICE's games, such as the Star Wars: Battlefront franchise. There also other options such as playing in squads or duos. A modern-day Battlefield title with a battle royale mode might suffer somewhat from the presence of advanced weaponry. It comes as little surprise that the two most widely known and successful FPS franchises would want to jump on the battle royale trend.

Due to Battlefield 5's battle royale mode only being a prototype, the report speculates that should DICE decide to release it, it could become available as a post-launch update.
