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.
