During Electronic Arts Q3 FY 2021 earnings call with analysts, CEO Andrew Wilson shared some details on the next Battlefield game, and revealed the new game is coming this Holiday 2021.
EA said the new battlefield game will offer an “all-out military warfare” and will support more players than ever before. This likely means that the game will have more than 64 players limit.
Wilson said, “We’re looking forward to sharing a lot more about our [fiscal year 2022] plans in the months ahead, including our next Battlefield experience, which will mark a return to all-out military warfare.”
“The game takes full advantage of the power of next-generation platforms to bring massive, immersive battles to life with more players than ever before. Featuring maps with unprecedented scale, the next edition of Battlefield takes all the destruction, player agency, vehicle and weapon combat that the franchise is known for and elevates it to another level.
The team is focused and the game is ahead of our internal milestones. We’ll reveal the game in the spring, and deliver a defining Battlefield experience for our players in the 2021 holiday season.”
The game will take full advantage of the power of next-generation platforms like PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S to bring massive and immersive battles to life, not just with better graphics and performance, but also new features.
EA CFO Blake Jorgensen further reiterated the fact that DICE is way ahead of where they were in prior product cycles, when it comes to the game’s development. Jorgensen said that the new title is scheduled to reach “feature complete” status faster than any other Battlefield game in the franchise.
“Formal guidance will follow on our Q4 call, but I can tell you now that the Battlefield team is doing an incredible job. They’re way ahead of where they were in prior product cycles, on track for their earliest feature complete in franchise history.” –Jorgensen said.
So just to reiterate, Battlefield 6 is set to release this holiday season, on next-gen systems and PC. A full reveal is also coming sometime in spring.
According to EA, Battlefield 6 or whichever name the company decides will be bigger and larger than ever before. EA teased huge maps, more players than ever before, and next-gen console upgrades.
Moreover, the Battlefield official Twitter account mentioned BF6 in a recent tweet.
