During EA’s quarterly earnings call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that Battlefield 2021/Battlefield 6 will be coming on both current-gen and old-gen platforms. Not only that, but the game – like its predecessor – will have lots of “live service” features. So yeah, expect micro-transactions.
In case you’re wondering, some insiders were tricked by EA’s marketing PR for Battlefield 2021. EA describes the new Battlefield as a “true next-generation game.” This led most to believe that the game would be only coming on current-gen platforms. Hell, even the General Manager at DICE was only mentioning current-gen platforms back in April. However, it appears that EA does not plan to skip the huge fan base of both PS4 and Xbox One.
Andrew Wilson claims that Battlefield 2021 will offer epic scale, all-out warfare, unexpected moments, and game-changing destruction. This is basically everything that the insiders have already leaked.
Regarding the game’s live service features, Wilson had this to say:
“We’re really excited about Battlefield, it’s going to lead up to an incredible live service for the future.”
Lastly, Wilson re-confirmed that EA will officially reveal this new Battlefield game in June 2021. Additionally, the company plans to show a lot more about the game throughout the Summer.
