The next Battlefield game is slated to launch in holiday 2021 and will boast “never-before-seen scale”. That’s according to EA CEO Andrew Wilson, who recently shared a good deal of tasty info on the publisher’s upcoming releases.
“The technical advancements of the new consoles are allowing the team to deliver on a true next-gen vision for the franchise”, shared Wilson in prepared remarks for the company’s latest earnings call. “We have hands-on play testing underway internally, and the team’s been getting very positive feedback on the game as we’ve begun to engage our community.” More info won’t arrive until the spring, but it’s still nice to hear that the Battlefield 6 release date isn’t too far off.

Hopefully its not released for the last consoles as that pandering with BF4 really limited the game on the newer consoles.

pushing BF4 so it was practically a launch title for the xbox one and ps4 crippled bf4 at launch.
It's a good thing they've given it a year at least this time. So either yeah it wont go to the old consoles or at the very least more time with the new consoles mean its better optimized.
I cant think of many things the new consoles are offering outside of a visual upgrade that will hamper this title hitting the prior generation?
Unless we actually believe EA on it being something genuinely groundbreaking?

Apart from faster SSD technology, faster cpu , major graphics update?
BF6 shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the last gen.

I could be very wrong here, but was it not already confirmed somewhere that it was only getting released on next gen consoles? Please tell me it was.

All we've officially seen of BF6 is some animation tests that used BFV models as the base at an EA show 2 years ago at this point?
Everything else has been rumored or incredibly vague statements from EA at investors calls or interviews. Only the most recent offering us something as concrete as there will be multiple new modes. But that's from EA, not DICE and I'd like to think we've all learnt to not trust what EA says.
Everybody has convinced themselves that it's going to be the first 128 player Battlefield and it could be, but until I see it from DICE I'll be cautious (mostly because most attempts at doing 128 player games have not really worked in the past, a few titles hold on but nothing outstanding, the sweet spot atm for milsims like SQUAD and Hell Let Loose is 95 - 100). So it could in the end turn out there is no 128 player mode and instead it's still the standard 64 player but a bunch of new modes.
Or it could be a 100 other things from DICE being forced to chase after Warzone to them being allowed to their own thing, we don't know anything at the moment and until we get details we dont know if being on last gen as well will hold it back or not.

Can't wait for this new Battlefield.The last 2 were good but didn't have a patch on BF4 so hoping the fact that they're going back to the modern era we will see some interesting new developments.
I've been playing some BF1 as of late. Getting very salty with Warzone these days and it's a nice change of pace.
