This year a new part of the Battlefield 6 will be launched. While Electronic Arts and DICE have not yet passed on to reveal more details about this shooter, the well-known leaker Tom Henderson would like us to know some things that await you with the latest part of the series.
Henderson has received information from people familiar with DICE’s plans that Battlefield 6 will return to a modern setting inspired by Battlefield 3.
The insider also reiterated his claim from last year that the shooter will contain some maps designed with 128-player battles in mind. What is new, however, are his statements that Battlefield 6 will also release on PS4 and Xbox One.
The publisher Electronic Arts had described the new Battlefield as “a real next-gen vision”. However, with the release only a year after the November launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if Electronic Arts and DICE were eager to take full advantage of the existing installation base.
According to Henderson, Battlefield 6 will probably not allow 128-player battles on the last-gen consoles. Instead, combats with up to 64 players are planned. Additionally, the title on the old consoles could offer limited destruction when compared to the new-gen and PC versions.
In addition, the leaker emphasized that gamers shouldn’t be concerned that the last-gen consoles restrict the next-gen version. The question of the Battle Royale game mode is still open. According to Henderson, it was in the works. However, its sources do not know whether the plans still exist.
With the success of Call of Duty Warzone and plans for 128-player maps, however, Henderson speculates that DICE might decide to implement the mode.
There is no exact release date for Battlefield 6 so far. But in November of last year, EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that the new shooter was planned for the Christmas season 2021.
