Battlefield 6 is getting an announcement soon: Everything we know so far
Battlefield fans, rejoice! The next installment in the popular first-person shooter franchise is coming soon, and EA has confirmed that it will reveal the game on June 9, 2023. But what can we expect from Battlefield 6? Here’s everything we know so far about the game, based on official announcements, leaks, rumors, and speculation.
What is Battlefield 6?
The next installment in the popular FPS franchise
Battlefield 6 is the upcoming sequel to Battlefield 5, which was released in 2018. Battlefield is a series of FPS games that focus on large-scale battles, realistic weapons and vehicles, and team-based gameplay. The series has been developed by DICE, a Swedish studio owned by EA, since its inception in 2002.
A cross-generation game with next-gen enhancements
Battlefield 6 will be a cross-generation game, meaning that it will be available on both current-gen and next-gen consoles, as well as PC. However, DICE has stressed that the game will take full advantage of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S systems, offering better graphics, performance, and features. DICE has said that Battlefield 6 will be a “true next-gen experience” regardless of its cross-generation ambitions.
A modern-day or near-future setting with robot dogs and 128-player matches
Battlefield 6 will reportedly be set in a modern-day or near-future setting, unlike the previous two games that were set in World War I and World War II. This means that the game will feature contemporary or futuristic weapons, vehicles, and gadgets. For example, one of the leaked screenshots shows a robot dog that can be used as a companion or a weapon. Another leaked screenshot shows a rocket launch site that could be part of a space-themed map or mode.
Another major feature of Battlefield 6 will be the increased player count for multiplayer matches. According to various sources, the game will support up to 128 players per match on next-gen consoles and PC, doubling the previous maximum of 64 players. This means that the maps will be bigger and more diverse, offering more opportunities for epic battles and chaos.
