Battlefield 6’s multiplayer maps are reportedly being designed to support increased player counts.
That’s according to Tom Henderson, a reputable Call of Duty leaker who previously said DICE’s upcoming shooter would centre on modern day military combat – a claim later backed up by VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb.
Henderson, who is the CEO of production company and social media agency Viral Junkie, recently claimed the new Battlefield game’s “maps have been designed with 128+ players in mind”.
“It doesn’t necessarily mean 64vs64 is coming,” he later added. “The core game is still 32vs32.”
“For every console generation, DICE sets the bar for excellence in audio and visual presentation,” said EA chief studios officer Laura Miele. “We are creating epic battles at a scale and fidelity unlike anything you’ve experienced before.”
EA has confirmed that the Battlefield 6 release date will fall in calendar year 2021.
Battlefield V included a battle royale mode called Firestorm, and Henderson has also claimed the series could return to the genre following the success of Call of Duty: Warzone, which has attracted over 75 million players since its release in March 2020.
It was previously claimed that a remastered version of Battlefield 3 will be released alongside the next mainline entry in DICE’s FPS series.
