Exploding in popularity since the March 2017 release of "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds", battle royale games tend to drop 100 players into an enclosed but expansive environment, constricting the available play space over the length of a match and thus forcing players into contact with each other until one player or team remains.
As of right now, nothing has been decided and with DICE currently testing out the mode to see if it can get it into action, it is entirely possible it may never see the light of day.
With the ongoing craze of Battle Royale games, it seems even AAA titles are going to dip themselves and bask in the recent boom of this genre.
It's possible that the mode might not make it into the final product, or that it could make it into another of DICE's games, such as the Star Wars: Battlefront franchise.
If the mode does get the green light, Battlefield: Battle Royale could end up as a new part of Battlefield V as a free update. Black Ops 4 is reportedly due for the mode, it's been a strong component of The Division 2 rumours, and a new report suggests the next Battlefield will soon follow suit. Grubb reached out to EA for any comments on this report but they declined. If there's money to be made or a trend to be followed, EA won't be far behind. The game, which is rumored to launch later this year, is still being developed, but that seemingly hasn't stopped the studio from trying to put together a prototype of a battle royale mode.
