EA and Dice have confirmed in a blog post that they will cease monthly updates for Battlefield 1 in June 2018. While DICE make clear they will update the game up until then - including adding a new mode called Shock Operations - support for the game will finally cease 20 months after its launch in October 2016.

The new mode, Shock Operations, is similar to the existing Operations in that it features up to 40 players fighting to control sectors. The difference is that battles will be confined to a single map, and so will be much more fast-paced. It will be available on five maps: Giant’s Shadow, Prise de Tahure, Lupkow Pass, Zeebrugge, and River Somme. Even though most of these are DLC maps, DICE says players of Shock Operations will still be able to access them.
