Battlefield 5 Chapter 7 Release Date –
Talking about the release date of Battlefield 5 chapter 7. The details of arrival were mentioned in the official Battlefield forum by @PartWelsh (Freeman). According to Freeman, the developers were planning to roll out the new update at the starting of April, but things delayed.
It definitely happened because of the Coronavirus pandemic, where, the governments have restricted gatherings to contain the spread of the virus.
Later in the blog, Freeman added that April’s update will roll out later in the month of May. He also mentioned that the developers were planning two updates, one in April and another one in May, but there won’t be any delay in the May update, as both of the updates will be released in May.
He also mentioned a reason for this step, check out the official statement from the blog.
Official statement –
The alternative option was to deliver April’s update much later than we had planned, and subsequently cause a delay to May’s update. This way, we get a better quality update out to you, in an overall shorter timeframe vs. attempting to publish two updates and needing to delay both of them.
Battlefield 5 Chapter 7 details –
Talking about the update details, Freeman mentioned only a few details about the upcoming DLC. According to him, both Steve Fisher, and Akira Sakamoto will now debut with BF5 May update, alongside the addition of Outpost to Twisted Steel, and more Vehicle Customization options that were originally planned to release during this next month.
The new update will bring changes in colors used on some default soldier uniforms and Transport Vehicle Skins used across all maps. And the update will be bringing several improvements, “swathe of fixes”, and other game changes.

[Update – April 23]
Earlier in this post, we mentioned the details shared by @PartWelsh (Freeman) related to the release of the new update in Battlefield 5. We mentioned that the developers will be rolling out April’s update in the month of May.
Well, today, Ryan McArthur, Senior Producer shared some more information on the upcoming updates in Battlefield V.
First of all, he mentioned that the next update in the game will roll out in June, there will be a delay in the arrival. Earlier, in this post, we mentioned that the update will arrive in May. But it looks, developers are finding it hard to roll out updates on schedule because of lockdown situations.
Ryan mentioned, “we will release one more standalone update this summer that brings with it some new content, weapons, and game tweaks.”
Does that mean Chapter 7 will be the last update in Battlefield 5?
The answer is yes!
Well, we have one more news to share with you all. It’s a bad one, may hit hard!
In the comments section of the official Twitter post, a user asked if chapter 7 would be the last major update in BF5. To this, the official Twitter handle of Battlefield 5 replied, “There will be no new chapter.”
Chapter 7, which was expected to bring new content, isn’t coming!
So, what does that mean? Can we expect new weapons/content with the update?
Well, the official statement said, “there will be a standalone update this summer with new content, weapons, and game tweaks,” which confirms that the update would bring new content but not under the chapter 7 title.
In the same thread, one user continued the conversation and asked if there would be further content updates during the winter.”
To this, the officials replied, “We’re continuing with new Weekly Missions and new rewards, and our update this summer will deliver new content to support that. We otherwise have no further content planned beyond our updates to Community Games and ensuring healthy game performance.”
The reply pretty much confirmed that this is the end of Battlefield 5. The game will receive its last update of the year in June.
