EA doesn't plan on releasing a new Battlefield game for a "couple of years"

 
EA doesn't plan on releasing a new Battlefield game for a "couple of years", instead focusing on other game series' like Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield 1's DLC. 
 
This announcement was made by EA's chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen, stating that "won't have another Battlefield back for a couple of years. Next year we'll have Battlefront, the Star Wars game." At this time EA has not announced any future plans for the Battlefield series apart from Battlefield 1's four expansion packs. 
 
EA now plans on releasing a new Star Wars: Battlefront game in 2017, which plans on including much more content than the first game in the series, likely including some meaningful singleplayer content as well as include content that is related to the latest movies.   
 
 

We were very excited about how Star Wars [Battlefront] came out last year,

It's a beautiful game, people loved it. I think if there was criticism they just wanted more. And so we're taking that criticism to heart as we build the next game and trying to address any of the issues that they had. 

The other thing is, we were really working with the old canvas of Star Wars, the old trilogy, we weren't using any of the new materials that came out of [Episode 7] because our game actually came out slightly before the movie. Next year we'll have the opportunity to leverage more of that content from the new movies and we think that'll make the opportunity much larger.

Right now EA has not confirmed any release plans for Star Wars Battlefront 2, though it is expected to be released in late 2017.
