Phase 3 now active

It's About section just had the sentence "Only the elite will step into the future first." along with both the EA website and Twitch channel being linked.

Phase 3 now active doesn't have much content on it, only four videos, but they are all focused around Battlefield 6.

Its first video is a countdown with a remix of a piece of music from Battlefield.

The countdown is leading to a date approximate 21 years in the future in 2042.

This is 100 years before Battlefield 2142 is set, could the next entry in the series be called Battlefield 2042?

Thee other videos on the channel seem to use assets from older Battlefield titles, along with communications in Russian.

The video ends with the date March 23rd and the Twitch logo.

This could mean that the official reveal trailer for Battlefield 6 could be revealed via the official Battlefield Twitch channel on March 23rd.

Is It Real?

While it is difficult to point to the videos and channel being real or fake without confirmation from EA, all signs point to it potentially being fake.

The videos are all fairly low quality and use old Battlefield assets along with real Russian communications, rather than dialogue recorded specifically for the games or trailers.

There is a possibility that the low-quality videos are a design choice, perhaps it plays into the story, potentially a small rogue group with no budget to create high-quality propaganda videos.

Or, it is fan-made and entirely fake, which we believe so, we will just have to wait until March 23rd and see if Battlefield 6 is officially revealed.
