I don't understand how EA/DICE doesn't see the answer to this. All they have to do is look at the COD rotation. Have 2 teams, and have one team create unrealistic war games that are based on real wars or completely fabricated, and have another continue on with the more realistic immersive games they've been making as of lately. Rotate every so often. Call both Battlefield if you want, but make it clear with a subtitle that one series is fairy tale land and the other is history at it's finest, no messing around.
If EA doesn't want to do this, and expects their audience to change, or hopes do draw in a new audience, then good luck. Why not put in a little more effort so you can easily have your cake and eat it too? If your so sure your new direction of Battlefield will sell well enough to make it worth it that is.

XB - Did you know that the XB1 was designed to be a perfect multimedia device? Where none shared, where everyone would use Kinect. It was a disaster. No one would accept the program. Entire 360 catalogue was lost. Some believed we lacked the console gamer logic to describe the perfect system, but we believed that, as a community, console gamers define their reality through waiting and micro-transactions. The imperfect hardware was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the XB1 was redesigned to this: the XB1S and XB1X, the peak of console 4k capability.
PS - You're more attractive than I thought. I can see why they like you. - Who? - Not too bright though… You know why Cerny was hired to design the PS4? – Yes. – So, what do you think? Do you think you’re the One? – Honestly, we don’t know. - Do you know what that phrase means? It’s gamer lingo for know thyself. I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Being the One is a lot like being the PS3. No one needs tell you that you screwed up, you just know it, through and through, hardware to exclusives.
Nin - Ok, now I'm supposed to say, hmm, that's interesting, but...then you say...- But what? - But...you already know what I'm going to tell you. - I'm not the Wii. - Sorry tablet. You got the gimmick, but it looks like you're waiting for something. - What? - Your next life maybe, who knows? That's the way these things go... / Unfortunately no one can be told what the Wii U is. You have to experience it for yourself.
