Rumors from earlier this year suggested that DICE’s sixth installment of its popular military FPS franchise, Battlefield, would be a cross-gen title that would see release not only on the PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S, but last generation’s PS4 and Xbox One consoles as well. Industry insider Tom Henderson has alluded to the contrary, however, noting that he hasn’t heard anything concrete from his sources about a previous-gen version of Battlefield. While this is bad news for Battlefield fans who are still stuck on older hardware, Henderson did confirm that Microsoft would be bringing the game to Xbox Game Pass on day one to improve its opening numbers. Battlefield’s next-gen exclusivity would also suggest that the six installment should take full advantage of all of the bells and whistles granted by modern hardware, resulting in one of the best-looking entries in the franchise yet.

This year’s Battlefield title will simply be called BATTLEFIELD. Per sources, I can confirm that the next Battlefield instalment will simply be called BATTLEFIELD and takes place around 10 years from now. The title is set in a modern/very near future, which gives the developers a chance to be able to implement weapons and vehicles that are currently in military development today.
