There are new rumors on the internet that EA’s first-person shooter Battlefield 6 will land on Xbox Game Pass on launch day.
Now that even Sony is offering a game directly for publication in the Xbox Game Pass subscription with MLB The Show 21, everything seems to be possible! Now there are rumors that Battlefield 6 will be playable on Xbox Game Pass subscription for Xbox and PC right away at launch day.
Speaking to the XboxEra podcast, the insider Shpeshal Ed revealed a rumor stating the following: “There’s a certain third-party, AAA first-person shooter that is highly likely to be launching in Game Pass this fall.”
It was also explained that with the term “Triple-A, Third-Party, First-Person-Shooter” there are only two franchises to choose from, which will be released in 2021: Call of Duty and Battlefield.
While Call of Duty will continue to celebrate its anniversary with PlayStation, it is almost obvious that this is the new Battlefield 6. Additionally, the collaboration and partnership between Microsoft and Electronic Arts is better than ever.
Since EA Play is already included for all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, it is very likely that Battlefield 6 will end up being included in the Xbox Game Pass subscription. Nevertheless, like every rumor, you should also take this news as what it is – a mere rumor.
Xbox and EA are in great sync right now, especially when it comes to the Xbox Game Pass, which EA’s service, EA Play, is inserted at no additional cost to its users. So, a day one launch of the new Battlefield on the Xbox Game Pass wouldn’t surprise anyone. As for the Xbox, the platform has already shown its interest in bringing great titles, and third-party games, like Outriders which is the latest example.
