It's been three years since the last entry in the coveted Battlefield franchise released, though that's all slated to change soon. The next game in the franchise, presumably called Battlefield 6, has now confirmed its reveal for next month, with more information releasing about the game throughout the summer.
The official Battlefield 6 Twitter started hinting at a June reveal just yesterday, posting a not-so-subtle tweet about the situation. Initially, a new trailer for the game was expected sometime this week, with fans of the franchise posting their own theories about why the trailer may have been delayed, if it was really delayed in the first place. Theories have ranged from a coronavirus-fueled problem to China's Long March 5B rocket crashing back into Earth, as the trailer supposedly features an exploding rocket.
Now, however, EA has confirmed that Battlefield 6 information will be released next month. EA CEO Andrew Wilson stated that the game is planned as a true next-gen experience, which does imply that the game will be skipping the PS4 and Xbox One console generation. The game will supposedly offer an epic scale, all-out battles for players to take part in, which does make the idea of leveraging the new generation of consoles all the more appealing.
No specific date has been announced for the reveal, however, June does see E3 2021 take place, and while EA won't be directly involved with the show, it seems like the most obvious time for the next Battlefield to debut. It's possible that the game will appear as part of Xbox's or PlayStation's conference, as competition between the two companies has started to heat up in recent weeks.
Past rumors have hinted that Battlefield 6 will be available on Game Pass on launch day, which doesn't seem too far out of the question considering Xbox's emphasis on the service. Plus, Xbox has fostered a relationship with EA by including EA Access in Game Pass, which gives subscribers access to certain EA titles. That makes a reveal on-stage with Xbox seem possible, but nothing has been confirmed just yet.
Notably, an EA Play showcase was confirmed for July 2021, which will likely bring more Battlefield 6 information along with it. That would line up with the promise for information over the summer, and let Battlefield take center-stage during a month with few game releases to distract from it. Battlefield 6 would be one of the first games made specifically for next-gen consoles if it fully commits to the new tech, which could help it carve out a competitive space over the likes of Call of Duty.
Battlefield 6 fans have been relying on leaks for all of 2021, as official info on the game has been scarce. Outside of an increased player count and holiday release window, leakers have been giving fans other information about the game. While this has ranged from Battlefield 6 reveal trailer details to information on its fresh destruction mechanics, some of the rumors have been truly out there — and the hub game is one of the most outlandish.
