The subject of this article, Battlefield Mobile, has been cut from the final version of a Battlefield game.

Battlefield Mobile is a cancelled installment in the Battlefield series that was planned to release sometime in 2022[1], but announced to be cancelled on 31 January 2023.[2] Developed from the ground up by Industrial Toys in association with DICE, it was planned to be available for Android and iOS platforms.[3]


Battlefield Mobile more faithfully replicated Battlefield gameplay on mobile devices compared to the Deathmatch-like multiplayer seen in Battlefield 3: Aftershock and BC2 iOS, featuring combined arms gameplay on larger maps. Gameplay was heavily based off of Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4, with a focus on infantry and ground vehicle gameplay in destructible environments. Soldiers had regenerating health, and could sprint, crouch, prone, and mantle over objects. Spotting functioned similarly to Battlefield: Bad Company, requiring players to zoom in on an enemy for a short period of time to Spot them.


Mobile used the four kit system seen in Battlefield V. Kits were not restricted to a specific weapon type, only gadgets were locked to individual kits. Weapons, equipment, and soldier specializations were unlocked from the player's overall career progression as opposed to the kit progression seen in most games.


Grand Bazaar returned from Battlefield 3, unchanged in layout but with a slightly different design. Destruction interactions seen in the original map remained, including the ability to cause environmental kills with falling debris.


Weapons had individual progression similar to Battlefield V, unlocking optics and weapon specializations as they were leveled up. Specializations cost Specialization Points to equip, which were also unlocked through weapon progression. Each weapon had an optic slot and a total of ten specialization points at max rank.

Weapons dropped by killed players could be picked up by living players and would also supply a small amount of ammo for weapons of the same type. Players passively regenerated ammunition for their equipment over time but could also resupply from the Support's Ammo Crate.

Developers image released alongside Mobile's announcement

Mobile was first announced on April 22, 2021 in a news post by DICE General Manager Oskar Gabrielson on the official Battlefield website. It was stated to be a standalone experience that DICE and Industrial Toys had been prototyping for "years".[3] The unnamed game was projected for a 2022 release window. FarBridge was also revealed to be assisting in the development of Mobile in July 2021. [4]

Early play tests in Indonesia and the Philippines were announced for Autumn 2021. The play test would feature the map Grand Bazaar and the Conquest gamemode, and only be available on devices running Android 7.0 or newer.[5] The game's Google Play store page was also made public with the announcement to allow eligible players to pre-register for the play tests. The first play test was released for pre-registered users in Thailand on September 25, 2021.[6]

On 31 January 2023, Electronic Arts announced a "strategic decision" to cancel development on Battlefield Mobile, which defuncts Industrial Toys completely.[2]
