Battlefield 6 Will Be Launched in Holiday 2021, EA Confirmed
Battlefield 6 and the new entry of the Need For Speed series both will be released in the fiscal year 2022.
Andrew Wilson, CEO of Electronic Arts, confirmed in the latest financial report of the company that Battlefield 6 will be available in Holiday 2021.
Usually, Electronic Arts tend to launch a new entry from the Battlefield series once every two years, however, this time around with the new generation of consoles arriving, the publisher has provided one more year for the development team at DICE to deliver the next mainline entry of the franchise later in 2021.
In the latest online meeting of EA’s earnings call session, Andrew Wilson, CEO of the company, revealed that they have eight separate titles to launch in the fiscal year 2021, including the new iterations of Battlefield and Need For Speed franchises. He confirmed that Battlefield 6 is set to be launched in Holiday 2021 and will have a “never-before-seen scale.”
As you may know, the next Need For Speed game will be developed by Criterion Games, the former developer of the series that brought Need For Speed Most Wanted 2012 and Need For Speed Hot Pursuit to life. Wilson went on teasing the game a little bit by mentioning that the new NFS is set to bring some “astounding visual leaps.”
It’s yet to be seen whether these two upcoming games will be next-gen only titles, but Wilson praised the power of the next-gen consoles and how their teams will be able to deliver a true next-gen vision, thanks to the new hardware sets.
Battlefield V is currently the latest iteration of the series that couldn’t repeat the successful performance of Battlefield 1 neither in sales nor fan-reception. The game is now available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It will be added to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate library through EA Play as of November 10th and will be available for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S players as well.
