EA is set to finally reveal Battlefield V this week, and until then the publisher is staying quiet. So quiet, in fact, that it issued a new teaser with four seconds of footage just to tell you to keep quiet. And even then, the only visual moment we get is a brief close-up of a face shushing the viewer.
It’s certainly not much to go on, but it’s more of an official glimpse than we’d had previously. The brevity certainly hasn’t stopped fans from speculating based on the sights and sounds.

Battlefield V will have its official reveal on Wednesday, May 23 at 1 PM PT / 4PM ET / 9 PM BST (2 PM AET). The stream will be hosted by comedian Trevor Noah, and it will feature the development team outlining its vision for the game. These will be the first official details we see, other than confirmation that a Battlefield game was coming this fall.
Unofficially, though, we’ve heard quite a bit about Battlefield V. Leaked reports confirmed the title before EA announced it, and those same leaks indicted this one would take place in World War 2. That would be the first time the series returned to that war since Battlefield 1943, and a notable similarity to last year’s Call of Duty: WW2. Whatever it is, it will be featured at the EA Play event in June.
