As insider Tom Henderson said in a new YouTube video , Battlefield 6 is heavily influenced by Battlefield 3. He believes the game will be called either Battlefield 6 or simply Battlefield, adding that the new title could be considered a “soft restart.”
Henderson has stated in the past that Battlefield 6 will return to a modern setting, with the release taking place on both PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well as legacy consoles. Regarding a potential “restart”, Tom noted that despite rumors of a Battlefield 3 remaster, there is no information on this topic.
Previously, information appeared on the network that Battlefield 6 will have cards for 128 people. According to Henderson, the locations are not just scalable for so many players, but are created specifically with 128 players in mind. But on the same cards there may be other modes, for example, the standard 32 by 32.
Until now, there is no official information about the new Battlefield. EA only announced that the game will be released on a new generation of consoles in 2021. According to Henderson, the release will take place in October or November, while the previous generation consoles will receive limited modes, designed for a maximum of 64 people. Also on pastgen there will be degraded graphics and destructibility.
Taking all this at face value is not worth it, however, according to our information, with Battlefield 6, the developers from DICE will try to repeat the success of Battlefield 3. Then they switched to a new engine, presenting a demo of one of the levels that impressed with their elaboration. And a similar story in terms of filing may await us in the next 2-3 months. Given that DICE has had a lot of time since Battlefield V, as well as new consoles and constant improvements to Frostbite, at least you can expect some cool graphics.
True, Activision is also awake, and if the coronavirus does not lead to delays, then we can expect a hot confrontation between Call of Duty and Battlefield. Like good old times.
