What is Battlefield 6?
Battlefield 6 (or Battlefield VI) is an unannounced first-person shooter game expected to land later this year.
The upcoming EA title will follow on from 2018’s hugely successful Battlefield 5.
It hasn’t been formally unveiled, by EA has confirmed that the game is being developed – and will soon be revealed.

E3 has confirmed that the big reveal is on June 9 – at 3pm UK time.
That puts the announcement just before the big E3 gaming convention.
Battlefield 6 release date – when is it out?
Battlefield 6 doesn’t have a public release date, so we’re still in the dark to some degree.
But EA financial documents suggest that the game is due to come out in the final three months of 2021.
That means we should expect Battlefield 6’s release date to fall at some point between October and December.
We’d suspect that October and November are more likely, to give sufficient run-up to Christmas.
For context, Battlefield 5 launched on November 20, 2018.
And Battlefield 4 was out on October 29, 2013.

Battlefield 6 supported platforms – is it on PS5, Xbox and PC?
EA has already confirmed that Battlefield will be available on a host of platforms.
For PlayStation fans, you’ll be able to play on both PS4 and PS5.
And the game is coming to Xbox One, as well as the newer Xbox Series X and Series S models.
It’s also very likely that we’ll see a PC release, given that Battlefield 5 was available on Windows.
There’s no word on a Nintendo Switch launch sadly – but that was also true for Battlefield 5.
