Battlefield 6 will make its world debut on June 9, according to the official Twitter account.
We are just over a week away from the official reveal of Battlefield 6, or what EA has simply titled “Battlefield.” The game will be revealed on June 9 according to the Battlefield Twitter account, which featured that information with a 10-second sound bite.
Based on the sounds of cyber-techno, the new battlefield will take place in the near future, confirming previous leaks.
As with many previous versions of the franchise, Battlefield 2021 is the worst kept secret in video games right now. Images leaked months ago showing Battlefield 6 as a return to the modern battlefield, showing soldiers in MV-22 Ospreys storming a beach where a very modern-style rocket waits to take off. Internal cutscenes that were leaked last week confirmed those footage and provided further confirmation of an earlier sound file that also managed to escape EA’s offices.
According to a source, we have seen 80% of what EA will reveal on June 9. Of course, we won’t know for sure until we see what EA and developer DICE have to offer.

Battlefield 6 is expected to launch in the last quarter of 2021, which means it will be just before Christmas or maybe early next year. It will be available on next-gen and current-gen consoles, although Andrew CEO Andrew Wilson promised a “truly next-gen experience” despite straddling both generations.
Tom Henderson, another Battlefield insider, recently tweeted that EA plans to run an alpha technical test for Battlefield in July. The announcement will be made through EA Play and will likely be limited to EA Play subscribers at least initially.
The Battlefield announcement comes just one day before the start of Summer Games Fest and just a few days before the start of E3. EA won’t be participating in this year’s E3 digital unveiling, but the company will be a part of the Summer Games Fest, which means we’ll likely see more of Battlefield as the summer progresses.
