It appears the Battlefield franchise may not be the only well-established FPS series to potentially feature a battle royale mode. EA Games likely hopes to cash in on the success of the genre like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite already have.
DICE is preparing Battlefield V, which I reported on in March, for launch later this year, but that isn't stopping the studio from putting together a prototype that could compete with PUBG and Fortnite. A full-blown and polished battle royale would be a nice adrenaline shot to the fanbase months beyond launch, but consider it just a rumor for now. It's only in the prototype phase right now, and if it does work, the team won't be able to get it finished before release.

A battle royale mode is being prototyped and tested within "Battlefield V", the latest entry in Electronic Arts' air, land and sea combat game, according to a VentureBeat report. Word is that Battlefield developer DICE is now testing a battle royale mode for Battlefield V.
The question is, whether this trend represents a seismic shift in the kinds of games people want to play, or if like a number of other half-genres over the past two decades, whether we'll see players return to the mainstays before long. The last one to remain standing is the victor. The reports add that this year's Call of Duty may be the first game in franchise to leave out campaign for a battle royale mode. What do you think about a battle royale for Call of Duty and Battlefield? Fortnite Battle Royale's development path may be what DICE seeks to emulate with Battlefield 5. We know that. But ads help us pay the bills.
