Battlefield publisher, Electronic Arts, has remained tight on details ahead of the reveal for its next title. "The technical advancements of the new consoles are allowing the teams to deliver a true next-gen vision for the franchise," CEO Andrew Wilson previously told investors in November. The latest from the company suggests the title remains on track for a fall 2021 release date, with past Battlefield unveilings also falling in May.

Battlefield 6 is expected to embrace a near-future setting, melding modern-day armaments with drones, robots, and other upcoming military technologies. That's coupled with what many expect to be the largest game to date, supporting up to 128-player matches, open multiplayer maps, and upgraded environmental destruction.

Last Friday saw the alleged audio track for the next Battlefield trailer surface online, aligning from previously leaked gameplay details from reputable sources. It appears preparations remain ongoing behind the scenes, with more information on Battlefield 6 expected over the coming days. The title is confirmed to launch on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC, with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions yet to be discussed ahead of the reveal.
