As hype continues to grow in anticipation for Battlefield 6, prominent leaker Tom Henderson has revealed the likely location that the game’s first trailer will be set in, along with a window for its release.
Battlefield remains one of the most popular FPS titles in history, with fans flocking to DICE’s sprawling masterpieces to take part in combat unlike any other game on the market. The prospect of a new Battlefield game is capturing the imaginations of players and streamers alike. So much so that rumours of a reveal trailer release within days flooded the gamersphere.
Last month Henderson revealed sketches that he claimed were made from the soon to be shown reveal trailer for the new installment of the franchise. He then confirmed that two low-res images leaked via Twitter were genuine:
And then the rumours started flying. Thick and fast.
Sadly, EA-DICE have just put those rumours to rest, with a Tweet via the official Battlefield twitter account:
Other leaks have hinted at the games’ slightly futuristic setting and even the inclusion of a new battle royale mode.
Battlefield 6 is due to release later this year and it’s a pretty safe bet it’ll come to PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC. Another rumor has suggested that the game won’t be coming to last-gen systems, which will mean gamers still playing on PS4 and Xbox One would be left out of the fun.
Other than the Tweet, the only other official news on Battlefield 6 came from a blog post by Oskar Gabrielson, DICE’s General Manager
