While it may not be officially unveiled until next month, it appears Battlefield's next instalment will launch across PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series consoles, as well as PC.
As part of EA's latest financial results, a slideshow presentation noted that the game will launch in Q3 of FY2022, placing it somewhere between October and December of this year.
Battlefield 6 Will Be A Cross-Gen Title After All
In an earnings call, the publisher's CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed the following:
“Battlefield will be available for both current-gen and next-gen as will our sports titles"
That's pretty clear cut, but Wilson also discussed whether the game's potential would be diminished by being released on multiple generations.
“I had the great fortune of growing up in this company and building games on multiple generations, and I think when you think about our infrastructure around our Frostbite team, our digital services teams, and our game teams, you have unbelievable experience getting the very best out of the past generation consoles to ensure that even as we move to the next generation, we’re getting more and more out of the old generation platforms, and so those games are going to look great," he explained.
In a blog post last month, developer DICE confirmed that the game is in development in tandem with Criterion and DICE Los Angeles - the "biggest Battlefield development team ever".
