Electronic Arts is working on Battlefield 6. The unveiling of the shooter is planned for spring 2021. But already today some rough information was shared.
In the latest quarterly report from Electronic Arts, the publisher talked about the shooter Battlefield 6. There was no extensive presentation of the title. But the company gave some general key data.
At first, Electronic Arts emphasized that development is progressing well. With Battlefield 6 DICE is even well ahead of schedule. The shooter will be presented in the course of spring.
“The team is focused and the game is ahead of our internal milestones,” said EA CEO Andrew Wilson. “We will reveal the game in the spring and deliver a defining Battlefield experience for our players in holiday 2021.” EA CFO Blake Jorgensen added that DICE is “way ahead of where we were in prior product cycles” in terms of development.
The setting was narrowed down in the further course of the quarterly report. And the new platforms were also discussed. “Our next Battlefield experience will mark a return to all out military warfare,” said the EA CEO. “The game takes full advantage of the power of next-generation platforms to bring massive immersive battles to life with more players than ever before.”
According to Wilson’s further statement, the new Battlefield will offer maps with “an unprecedented scale.” In addition, the developers are pursuing the goal of lifting the destruction, the players’ options for action as well as vehicle and weapon battles to a new level.
As early as last year it was rumored that the multiplayer maps of Battlefield 6 would be designed in such a way that they support higher numbers of players. Tom Henderson, a well-known Call of Duty leaker, previously pointed out that DICE’s upcoming shooter will focus on modern military combat – a claim that was later confirmed by VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb.
Battlefield 6 is expected to be released this year for PC and the new-generation consoles of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Last-gen versions for the PS4 and Xbox One consoles also seem to be in preparation.
