Battlefield 6 finally has a PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC release window as Electronic Arts just revealed that DICE’s new Battlefield game will be released next year, during the holiday season.
Speculation has already started on whether it will be a true next-gen experience or a cross-gen game that will also hit PS4 and Xbox One. During the earnings call, EA mentioned that DICE has a “true next-gen vision for the franchise”.
EA also highlighted how they have received “very positive” feedback from their internal testing, and are therefore very confident in the product.
They promise that the instalment will have a “never-before-seen scale” in terms of technical achievements that would only be possible because of the next-gen tech.
“The technical advancements of the new consoles will allow the team to deliver on a true next-gen vision for the franchise. We have hands-on play testing underway internally, and the team’s been getting very positive feedback on the game as we’ve begun to engage our community.”
This news has fans excited, and with developer support for Battlefield V, it’s thrilling to know how close we are getting to the release.
I’m really interested to see if it will be able to compete with Call of Duty (My bias is showing, I know). So here’s what you need to know so far:
During the EA Play 2020, DICE showcased a teaser image of the progress made on Battlefield 6. The image did not give fans much to go on, but it did ensure fans that the game was definitely in the development phase.
EA had announced the game back in October 2019, and the game was scheduled to release between April 2021 and March 2022 and as of January 2020, the time window was still the same.
Developers and publishers had to push back the release due to the pandemic, but it does seem that it didn’t really affect the release window of the game.
EA narrowed the window for the new game setting the release for between April and December 2021.
