Battlefield 6 Officially Confirmed

EA and Dice have officially announced that the next core Battlefield game is being made by the biggest team yet and that it'll release in 2021.

Dice said: "we’re really excited to have the biggest Battlefield development team ever working on our console and PC game for this Holiday season."

Hopefully we'll hear more about the game at EA Play later in the year.

Larger than life maps

Firstly, the maps are shaping up, still, to be suitable for 128 player matches. These would be immense games with teams of 64 people in a true all-out war setting.

The size of these battles limits the scope of the release of the game somewhat, however.

It is unlikely for last-gen hardware to cope well with battles of such a size. As such, it is likely that these 128 player maps will be aimed at owners of next-gen hardware.

Last-gen release

Despite this lack of expanded content on last-gen, Tom Henderson (the leaker behind this information), says players shouldn't be worried.

Battlefield 6 will still target 64 player maps on last-gen, and has the entirety of its own team working on a last-gen version.

As such, players who are looking to buy the game on PS4 or Xbox One should not be worried, as the game will still be an absolute treat to play.

Battlefield battle royale

The next major reveal from these leaks is the possibility of a battle royale game mode in Battlefield 6.

Whilst Henderson's sources are no longer certain as to whether or not this mode is still in the works, the success of Warzone may push EA to move forward with it.

This, coupled with the possible scope of 128 player maps, leads us to think that we will likely see one in Battlefield 6!

EA have penciled in Battlefield 6 as a "true next-gen vision for the franchise", so no doubt this will be a title that truly blows us away.
