Battlefield 6, as we think it will be called, is due to be officially revealed later today. While we know the new Battlefield will land on consoles and PC later this year, a release date outside the “Holiday 2021” window hasn’t been confirmed. Hopefully, we see that window narrowed today and get some more juicy details on the next entry in the veteran first-person shooter series.

Battlefield 6 Trailer
ea play 2020
While EA DICE hasn’t released any Battlefield 6 trailer yet, the upcoming Battlefield was shown off in a tech trailer during EA Play 2020. We only caught a glimpse of some “work in progress” footage, which featured facial animations and a large number of soldiers running into battle.
From the brief glimpse we’ve seen, it looks like the facial animations will be more realistic than ever and we’re going to see the battlefields get even bigger this time around – potentially with more players (as rumours).
“We’re creating epic battles on scale and fidelity unlike anything you’ve experienced before,” EA Chief Studio Officer Laura Milley said during the video. That may not be much to go on going forward, but it does suggest that Dice plans to make the most of the new console’s power. See it for yourself below, at the 44-minute mark:
Battlefield 6 News and Rumors
We’ve rounded up all the latest news and rumors around Battlefield 6 below:
Gameplay images leak ahead of June
Screenshots reported to be from Battlefield 6 have been leaked online just ahead of the game’s planned June 9 reveal.
There are four images in total, all posted by the Twitter account. battlefield news And also uploaded to Imgur. The images showed a city view, a ground-based view of a helicopter, and a player-view of the tanks and aircraft in use. They also take a look at the game’s UI, with mini-maps, party lists, and equipment lists appearing in three of the four screenshots.
According to Battlefield News (via Gamerdar), the images were taken from a recent “game test” and one of the images is marked as “pre-alpha footage.” Although there is no confirmed source for the images and it is always best to take these things with a pinch of salt, established Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson said. tweeted To claim “they are real”.
EA recruits Call of Duty executives
EA has recruited a former Call of Duty exec to help develop the Battlefield series. The company recently announced that it has hired former Call of Duty general manager, Byron Bead, on the battlefield (via IGN) as general manager and senior vice president. With EA saying that the hire “indicates a strategic, long-term commitment to the growth of the franchise”.
But it is the experience of Beed that is most interesting. Bead has previously been general manager of both the Call of Duty and Destiny franchises, notably working on the launch of Call of Duty’s live service offerings, Call of Duty Mobile and Call of Duty: Warzone.
While Bead is set to focus primarily on the future of the Battlefield franchise, his knowledge of live service games will likely be a huge boon to Battlefield 6.
Battlefield 6 trailer made using leaked screenshots?
A user posted an album on Imgur that features a ton of new screengrabs that show the trailer for Battlefield 6 in action.
While it’s hard to see what’s being shown due to the black bars accompanying each photo, possibly covering up watermarks, it still gives us a good indication of what the game might look like.
Leaked screenshots point to modern warfare
Battlefield 6 screenshots that could potentially be from the upcoming reveal trailer have surfaced online via leaker Tom Henderson’s Discord channel. As reported by VideoCardz, the images show several contemporary inventions such as the giant rocket, the dog-like four-legged robot and the cockpit of a high-tech jet fighter.
While the images have been completed by machine learning algorithms (the original has big black bars that cover a substantial portion of the image), they give us a good idea of what we can expect from the Battlefield 6 reveal trailer.
Battlefield 6 may be more than a “live serve” game
EA CEO Andrew Wilson says the company already has a plan in place for Battlefield 6, and it will launch as an “AAA premium experience” but will get bigger over time with live service elements so that it will be able to play the game. Make sure the game gets “long term engagement”. .
Speaking on EA’s full-year earnings call, Wilson said: “We have a blueprint, which is how we start with our AAA Premium experience that is truly innovative in its category, we’re looking for long-term engagement. How do we build a live service for that and then how do we think about modalities in play and the business model to increase our reach and penetration of that game across platforms, across geographies, across business models on a global basis. “
It will come as no surprise to see Battlefield 6 receive regular content updates. Battle Pass and Seasons have kept players hooked to games like Call of Duty: Warzone and Fortnite, so we’d be surprised if EA didn’t implement something similar for the next Battlefield game.
ea dev Asks fans to understand when they are impatient
EA’s director of communications for the shooter game, Andy McNamara, has asked Battlefield fans to be patient, as many have apparently called for him to be sacked over the game’s drawn-out disclosure.
McNamara said: “If I read my tweets, I believe that many Battlefield fans are calling that I have already been fired. I understand your frustration, but I can tell you that I am somewhat Killing myself for giving something that I think you’ll love when the time comes. That’s right. Please be patient.”
McNamara said the entire team is working hard, and just because the game will also release on last-gen consoles doesn’t mean it won’t make an impact on the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Battlefield 6 will release on PS4 and Xbox One
After much speculation, EA has confirmed that Battlefield 6 will release on last-gen consoles, leading some to believe the game will be exclusive to PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
During the company’s full-year earnings call (thanks, VGC), EA CEO Andrew Wilson revealed that the game will also affect the PS4 and Xbox One, which may disappoint those who were expecting Battlefield. The 2017 will be a true next-gen showcase.
“Battlefield will be available to both the current and next generation as will our game titles,” Wilson said.
‘Wacky cosmetics’ and a customizable robot dog
In response to someone on Twitter whether Battlefield 6 will have “stupid cosmetic items” like Battlefield 5, Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson confirmed that – as far as he knows – the new Battlefield will have “wacky cosmetics”. , “Due to Nature” of the setting.
However, according to Henderson, the incorporation of these cosmetics “is not necessarily a bad thing and is actually very good”. Henderson then attached a link to a video about the ballistic helmet, suggesting it may be the type of cosmetics he’s referring to.
These types of cosmetics make sense given that Henderson previously claimed that the new Battlefield would take place in a modern to near-future setting—about 10 years from now.
In a follow-up reply, Henderson also said that players will have a robot dog, which will be customizable – although he did not share to what extent players can customize the robot or what those cosmetics will look like.
Due to the nature of the setting – I guess expectations should be set that there will be some wacky cosmetics – which is not necessarily a bad thing and is actually very good. https://t.co/LEnOZLUAj0 https://t .co/BNXamyYR5HApril 18, 2021
extreme weather conditions?
Leaker Tom Henderson claims that Battlefield 6 will feature extreme weather conditions and that the game’s first reveal trailer will revolve around a desert island.
Henderson shared a rough sketch of what the game’s new map will look like on Twitter. Previous leakers have suggested that one of the new Battlefield 6 maps will be in Kazakhstan, however, this map appears to be different.
The game’s trailer will also reportedly showcase Battlefield 6’s new extreme weather conditions,…
