We know a new Battlefield game is coming.
EA Play is surely the perfect time for a big announcement, right?
EA Play Delayed
A recent tweet from EA reads that EA Play will be on 18 June 2020, which is later than originally planned.
DELAY: The event will now be on 18 June
EA Play schedule
EA Play is just around the corner, and the chance of Battlefield 6 making an appearance is possible, if yet to be confirmed.

Battlefield 6 release date
We know that Battlefield 6 is in the works.
In a statement made to IGN earlier this year, EA confirmed that DICE "is focused on the future of Battlefield that we’ll be bringing to players in 2021".
GET READY: EA will be showcasing their big titles digitally this year
A 2021 release window is a pretty big one. We can assume EA will want to avoid running into a fight with any Call of Duty release. That makes an earlier in the year more likely.
That would make EA Play 2020 a perfect time to drop an announcement.
Battlefield 6 at EA Play
EA Play is where the gaming giant showcase their most popular and exciting titles.
REALISM: Battlefield has traded as a realistic alternative to CoD
Along with the annual sporting titles like FIFA and Madden, fans get a look at the big titles EA are working on. Last year they gave gamers a look at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order along with other games.
If Battlefield 6 really is slated for an early to mid-2021 release window, then EA Play gives them the perfect opportunity to announce the game and maybe even give us a trailer and release date.
How to watch EA Play
