Now that we finally got a real, official update today from DICE (though not much) and the next couple months should bring a teaser and a full trailer and more solid announcements, I think we could use a dedicated Battlefield thread for those here, who like me, love the franchise. It’s the one game in 2021 I’m (slightly) more excited for than Halo Infinite
Oh and by the way, I didn’t call the thread BF6, because I’m pretty sure that will not be it’s official name. Known BF leaker Tom Henderson said the new title will just be titled Battlefield and DICE seems to confirm that in this dev post I’m linking below. Unless it’s just a general refrence of the franchise name, but I think it will probably be just “Battlefield” as in a sort of rebooting of the franchise after BFV’s tepid reception and a new generation of consoles
And they screwed the damn number system up a long time ago anyway. If someone who had no idea about this franchise ever looked at a chronological list of full BF release titles, they would be scratching their head like they had a rash up there
4/22 update from Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager at dice…
Hey BattlefieldTM community!
I know everyone is wanting more detail about what’s to come for Battlefield this year, and I promise we have A LOT to show you in the coming months. We’re putting some things together for when we reveal the next generation of Battlefield , and we can’t wait to show that to you all…but for now, we have a couple of things we wanted to tell you about.
First, we’re really excited to have the biggest Battlefield development team ever working on our console and PC game for this Holiday season, and second…we have something very exciting to talk about on mobile!
The Return of All-Out Warfare
2021 is an exciting time for us here at DICE. Working with more world-class development studios within Electronic Arts, we have our biggest team ever on a Battlefield game for console and PC. Our friends at Criterion and DICE LA are working with us on our shared vision for the game, while the team in Gothenburg is taking technology in the game to the next level. Together, we are creating a jaw-dropping experience for you to enjoy later in 2021.
We’re in daily playtesting mode right now: polishing, balancing, and making the best possible Battlefield game we can. I can tell you it is a bold step. It has everything we love about Battlefield – and takes all of it to the next level. Epic scale. All-out military warfare. Crazy, unexpected moments. Game-changing destruction. Massive battles, packed with more players and mayhem than ever before. All brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs.
Get ready for our reveal “soon™”
