As anticipation rises for the next installment in the Battlefield series, fans have been eagerly awaiting an official reveal after multiple leaks and rumors pointed towards a near-future setting. Previous reports suggested the trailer was supposed to come out last week, but now it looks like we’ll have to wait until next month.
There are three constants in life: death, taxes, and a new Battlefield game every couple years. Anticipation for the next official Battlefield game has been slowly ramping up after EA has teased the next installment for a while now, but everyone has been wondering whether it will return to the modern day setting, or stick to the historical WW1/WW2/Vietnam era. Well, a new leak suggests it could be something entirely different…
The next entry in the Battlefield series is supposed to be releasing later this year, but up until now we haven’t seen much of it yet. So in a surprise announcement, EA and Dice said that they will be revealing the next Battlefield game very soon, and dropped some exciting info for the next installment, plus revealed a mobile Battlefield game is coming as well.
Electronic Arts have just revealed that the next Need for Speed has been delayed by at least a year as they pull Criterion to help DICE on developing Battlefield 6, which has apparently been slowed down by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The next NFS game is now expected sometime in 2022.
It’s been a long wait since the last Battlefield game came out, or at least long by normal standards of Battlefield releases that is. Though good news for anyone who has been anticipating the next entry in the series as EA has just confirmed that Battlefield 6 will be officially revealed this Spring, and promises the biggest Battlefield game yet.
In a recent earnings call for EA, the company reaffirmed that the next title in the Battlefield series will be launching in Holiday 2021, with more information coming in the next few months. Additionally, it will apparently be of a “never-before-seen scale,” taking full advantage of the next-gen console platforms.
EA Play Live took place yesterday, and there was some pretty big news  to come out of it. Not only did we get to see some actual gameplay for Star Wars: Squadrons, but the bombshell of Skate 4’s announcement was also a highlight. However, EA tried to play coy and give us a little tease as to what’s coming with a next-gen tech teaser that showed off a bit of Battlefield 6.
