"Fortnite: Battle Royale" public relations manager Nick Chester debunked the rumors, taking to Twitter to write that it is "the silliest thing I've ever read".

Following in the footsteps of battle royale sensations like Fortnite, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and now potentially Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, EA DICE is reportedly prototyping a battle royale mode for the upcoming Battlefield V, according to a report by VentureBeat citing an anonymous source with insider knowledge of the studio.

If everything goes well, Battlefield 5 could also be getting the Battle Royale mode as a free update post launch.

In fact Sensor Tower estimates that Fortnite Battle Royale could very well be on its way to earn as much as $500 million this year, which combines both iOS and Android earnings. Catering to the needs of players and upping their game in every way possible with each challenge and #Battle #Pass, "Fortnite" continues to prove that is it indeed, the modern gamers wet dream.

Another major franchise is now rumored to be considering adding a battle royale mode, just a day after news that Call of Duty's 2018 iteration will join in on this year's most popular gaming trend.

A report has surfaced stating DICE is now investigating how a battle royale mode would work in Battlefield 5.

Whatever the specifics, DICE's approach to online shooters, with massive maps and huge player counts, would present a natural opportunity to build a battle royale. We expect more information to be announced on May 17 with the game's official reveal, along with a spot within E3 2018 in June. This is said to be a prototype, so there is a possibility that the game developer decides to not bring it to Battlefield.

The fact that is now one of the most popular games at the moment just makes it all the more unlikely that "Fortnite: Battle Royale" shutting down in less than a month.

That's not all the has happened with the game's weekly update, Epic Games has also adjusted weapon peeking "In v3.4, we identified an unintended behavior with shooting that affected a small number of players", the patch notes say.

We'll know what these meteors mean for sure in the coming days.
