Battlefield is hitting mobile devices in 2022, publisher EA revealed on Thursday. It'll be developed by Industrial Toys in partnership with DICE, the developer traditionally associated with the first-person shooter series.

The mobile game is "a standalone game," according to DICE general manager Oskar Gabrielson.

It's a "completely different game from the one we're making for console and PC, designed specifically for the mobile platform," Gabrielson said in a blog post. "It's being built from the ground up by iToys to make Battlefield-on-the-go a reality and you can expect a fully fledged, skill-based experience. 

It'll come out after DICE's new entry in the mainline Battlefield series, which hits consoles and PC later this year.
