EA has said that Battlefield 6 "takes full advantage of the power of next-generation platforms", and that the game is on track for an early 2021 reveal and holiday release (between September-December 2021).

EA CEO Andrew Wilson shared more details about Battlefield 6 in an earnings call with investors. Wilson said that Battlefield 6 will tap into the horsepower of both the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which should “bring massive and immersive battles to life with more players than ever”.

Wilson also added that Battlefield 6 will feature maps “with unprecedented scale” and that “the next vision of Battlefield takes all the destruction, player agency, and vehicle and weapon combat that the franchise is known for and elevates it to another level.”

Battlefield 6 has been tipped for a holiday 2021 release date, and it appears that will be the case. Battlefield tends to release between September and November of each year, and Wilson confirmed the game will arrive in the holiday season.

"We will reveal the game in the spring and deliver the defining Battlefield experience for our players in the 2021 holiday season," Wilson said.

While Battlefield is still one of the biggest games of the year, it’s fair to say that the latest iteration, Battlefield 5, didn’t quite resonate as strongly with the game’s player base as previous titles.

Much like Call of Duty, there’s always a back and forth over the direction and setting of each title, with some players preferring a more military-focused game, while others would like to see a more modern, futuristic depiction.

For those in the more traditional camp, Wilson has said the next Battlefield game will "mark a return to all-out military warfare”, which should please the purists.

One of the earliest revelations the developer made at the event was confirming that Battlefield 2042 will not have a traditional single-player campaign. The game is instead going to infuse narrative into its various multiplayer modes.
Strange move, all right. There was some beautiful missions with epic moment like the Jet mission, Shanghai and basically all of BF1. Would have thought that a short singleplayer campaign wouldn't be too resource intensive compared to multi-player.

A look at Battlefield 2042 gameplay was shown during the Xbox + Betsheda E3 2021 showcase, as promised.



As promised, DICE brought the first-ever look at Battlefield 2042 multiplayer gameplay to the Microsoft stage, as part of the Xbox Bethesda Games E3 2021 Showcase.

The video features a look at 128-player multiplayer on the new Conquest, captured from a variety of the game’s massive maps (but mostly Hourglass). This isn’t some stylised selection of scenes, either, we’re looking at direct gameplay capture for the most part, with the HUD and the rest of the UI visible.

The perspective changes all throughout to demonstrate Battlefield 2042’s different gameplay mechanics. There’s a look at a couple of the No-Pat Specialists, including Webster Mackay’s grappling hook, the wingsuits, and a glimpse of Maria Falck’s Syrette Pistol.

A few seconds of vehicle gameplay are there, too, offering a look at the helicopter, tank, and transport vehicles. The impressive new weather effects are on full display. Hourglass’ sandstorm, in particular, slowly rolls in and covers the map in dust, not to mention tear apart infantry and vehicles as it tosses them around.

Cautiously optimistic after the gameplay trailer now also.

Looks like some really interesting things going on with the dynamic weather (which will knock snipers the most and planes/helicopters).

Loving that they do seem to be trying to find a balance between vehicles and infantry.

Honestly, I can't wait to see more, lets hope they deliver and live up to the hype.
