The Battlefield VI announcement date is unofficial, but new information has arrived. According to the assumptions, EA and DICE are preparing to announce the game to players in May. You know, we’ve said in a previous report that the announcement could come in the spring.
May marks Battlefield VI announcement date
According to Jeff Grubof GamesBeat, Electronic Arts aims to announce the game before the E3 2021 digital event. “May,” he said when asked by his audience when the game would be announced. “Everything is still uncertain. They haven’t announced anything yet. But as far as I can tell, they’re probably waiting for May.”
Electronic Arts said in January that DICE was well ahead of schedule in the game’s development process and that the game could appear in the spring. This means that what we hear about the Battlefield VI announcement date will come soon. At the same time, the company’s CEO, Andrew Wilson, said in the company’s third-quarter earnings interview, “Our next Battlefield experience will be a return to all military battles.”
However, some promising statements about the game were also shared:
“With more players than ever before, the game is taking full advantage of the power of next-generation platforms to bring massive, immersive battles to life.”
“The next version of Battlefield, featuring maps on an unprecedented scale, takes all known destruction, vehicle and gun battles of the series to another level.”
Battlefield V, the last game in the series, included a battle royale mode called Firestorm. Despite this, the BF5 has been overshadowed by Call of Duty: Warzone, which has absorbed 85 million players since its release. Just as years ago they led to the release of Battlefield 1 and COD: WWII, Activision caused BF5 battle royale mode with Warzone. But things didn’t go as expected for EA and DICE. That’s why the beloved Battlefield 1 texture is now expected to be preserved in the upcoming game.
As the Battlefield VI announcement date approaches, it’s a question of whether the game will have an F2P mode. Earlier, during an earnings interview, an analyst – presumably referring to Warzone – asked if they were considering “FPS games that use free-to-play modes to expand the top funnel.” EA boss Wilson then did not give a clear answer. Speaking of which, have you seen the player who plays Warzone with bread?
