DICE’s next big project continues to be the talk of the town. Indeed, while we haven’t seen anything of the game yet, Battlefield VI has been coming up in the rumours we’ve been hearing lately. While we know that the game is currently in development and that its release has been confirmed for the end of 2021, the rumour of the day is that it will be exclusive to next-gen consoles.
Battlefield 6 would not be released on Xbox One and PS4
In other news, I still have yet to hear anything concrete that #BATTLEFIELD will come to past gen consoles. Theory - It indicates to me that it probably won't and the biggest reason #BATTLEFIELD will come to the Xbox Game Pass on day 1 is to boost up player numbers.— Tom Henderson (@_Tom_Henderson_) April 15, 2021
According to the generally well-informed Tom Henderson, the game may not be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The man said on Twitter that he had not yet heard anything about Battlefield 6 coming to the previous generation consoles.
This follows on from another rumor that has been circulating online for the past few weeks, which states that the game could be released directly through Xbox Game Pass.
Vers une sortie day one dans le Xbox Game Pass ?
If these rumours are obviously to be taken with a pinch of salt, seeing Battlefiled 6 arrive directly in the Xbox Game Pass is becoming less and less far-fetched. Microsoft and Electronic Arts are already partners since the EA Play service is included in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The recent success of the release of Outriders day one in the service could certainly give ideas to the Redmond firm and its aggressive strategy concerning the Xbox Game Pass.
It is moreover by relying on this rumor that Tom Henderson evokes the fact that the game could not be released on Xbox One and PS4. In addition, last May, Electronic Arts indicated that it was “targeting innovations made possible by next-generation consoles” for the next Battlefield. Recalling also DICE’s desire to increase the capacity of its servers as well as the rumours concerning a larger scale destruction, we have every reason to believe that Battlefield 6 will be released exclusively on Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC.
In any case, we can’t wait to discover the first images of the game and especially to know if it will really arrive in the Xbox Game Pass on its release day.
