Electronic Arts has confirmed it will reveal the next Battlefield game on Wednesday, June 9.
The next instalment in developer DICE‘s first-person shooter series will be shown publicly for the first time at 7am PDT / 4pm CEST, the publisher announced on Tuesday.
EA previously confirmed that Battlefield 6’s reveal trailer would be released in June, and that the game will be a cross-gen title when it hits consoles and PC this holiday season.
A senior EA communications director also sympathised with fans frustrated by the extended wait for Battlefield 6’s reveal, but pleaded for a bit more patience.
Last month, EA CEO Andrew Wilson announced plans to release the game for PS4 and Xbox One as well as PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC during the company’s full-year earnings call.
“Battlefield will be available for both current-gen and next-gen as will our sports titles,” he said.
Later in the call, it was put to Wilson that cross-gen releases haven’t always fared so well in the past.
“With respect to current generation versus next generation titles, or maybe we should say current generation versus past generation platform titles, this has been done exceptionally well for decades,” he responded.
“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.
“When you think about new platform generations, again, with the advances that we make in Frostbite, with the advances that we make in our digital ecosystem, and with the advances that we’re making at a feature design level with the new unlocks that come from power, the games on next generation consoles are going to be extraordinary.”
EA’s chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen also said the game will be “great” on both console generations but “even more spectacular” on the newer systems.
A low-quality version of what is claimed to be a Battlefield 6 trailer intended for internal use seemingly leaked in full last week.
