The next Battlefield, currently on track to launch on consoles and PC later in 2021, aims to deliver a "next-gen vision" for the military shooter, according to publisher Electronic Arts. Past reports suggested a "soft reboot," dropping the subtitle from past Battlefield entries.

The low-quality images provide alleged blurred stills from the upcoming Battlefield reveal trailer, aligning with previously shared themes and visuals. A Boston Dynamics-style robot dog and rocket launch feature, both previously reported, adding further credibility to a near-future setting. One accompanying image seen also displays Battlefield 6's formal title — backing previous reports of a reboot simply branded "BATTLEFIELD."
The latest images add further credibility to past leaks, with Battlefield 6 set to deliver a sizeable shakeup for the franchise. Sizeable additions have been teased, with 128-player multiplayer matches, larger maps, and increased destruction all on the docket for June.
