In May, Activision and Infinity Ward confirmed the next installment in the long-running Call of Duty franchise. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare follows in the footsteps of Black Ops 3 and takes gamers to a new setting this fall.
A few days later, EA DICE took the stage and announced a new entry into its well-known Battlefield series. Battlefield 1, like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, will be released in countries around the world later this year.
These games are official but the developers remain mum about many of the specifics. That said, we still have enough to make an early comparison between the two games that will almost certainly be two of 2016’s best-selling titles.
It outlines what you need to know about the release dates, some key dates that you should have circled on the calendar, gameplay differences, betas, and some of the other basics you should know ahead of their release.
We’ll continue to update this with new information as EA DICE and Activision/Infinity Ward make them available to us.
Battlefield 1 vs. Infinite Warfare Release Date
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare currently has one official release date while Battlefield 1 currently has two buyers should be aware of.
Assuming it's not delayed, Battlefield 1 will arrive a few weeks before Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare arrives..
The global Battlefield 1 release date is October 21st, a Friday. EA is also offering an early Battlefield 1 release date to EA Access/EA Origin members and those that pre-order the Early Enlister Edition. Early Enlisters will get the game three days early on October 18th.
The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release date lands on November 4th, another Friday that lands just ahead of the holidays.
We expect these dates to stick.
