In the latest Battlefield V community broadcast it was detailed that the team at Dice would be bringing private games to Battlefield V.
The update containing private games will be coming after this summer, and will re-brand what is now called RSP into Private Games.
When you create a server you’ll be able to manage options using a basic set of tools provided by Dice, and your server will remain online while any players are playing on it. This means that despite being the server owner you’ll be able to come and go from your server as you please given that others remain on it.
The first phase of custom games contains what Dice calls “must-haves” when it comes to administration tools.
- Create private game from main menu
- Set custom name for the server
- Set description for the server
- Password protect the server
- Control what maps are used within the map rotation
- Control what game modes are available
- Control the number of players needed to break pre-round
- Kick players from the current game

- Save your server settings as a custom preset so you can reapply at will

According to the community post, Dice plans to continue support for private games with more features such as creating and managing a list of moderators, VIPs, banned players, and more coming soon.
Dice says that the base version of private games will be completely free, but this does indicate that there will be a paid version with more features on the way as well.
