A new Battlefield 6 leak on Reddit has claimed that a free-to-play battle royale game is set to release in 2022, and has disputed other previous leaks.
We’re now nearing the official reveal of Battlefield 2021, and a ton of information about the game has been reportedly leaked. We’ve heard rumors that the game will launch on Game Pass, might not feature a campaign, and DICE themselves revealed a Battlefield mobile game is in development.
In a new Battlefield 6 leak on Reddit, a user claims they have a contact at DICE LA who has revealed new information about Battlefield 2021. The leaker themself has warned readers to take everything they say “with a pinch of salt,” as their source has “not seen or played the game.”
Many fans, including Dr Disrespect, are excited at the prospect of Battlefield 2021 taking on the battle royale genre. This new leak claims that DICE LA is developing a free-to-play battle royale game that’s set to release in March 2022.
The leak also describes how it’s “tied to the main game like Warzone,” and Dr Disrespect has already explained how this could help it emulate Warzone’s success.
Popular leaker and industry insider Tom Henderson said that he finds the battle royale leak hard to believe. After the leak directly disputed some of his previous leaks, he responded, “I also think there’s a few things wrong in the “leak” itself including DICE LA working on BR…Really?”
This new leak also gave us some multiplayer gameplay details, reporting that there are 13 maps at launch, all set in Eurasia. Vehicles deploy on the map and you physically have to enter them, and Conquest is set for a major overhaul. Battlefield V’s attrition and squad revive systems have also reportedly been scrapped.
Tom Henderson has already gone into great detail explaining how your character in-game will be able to fight for either side of the conflict, and there are no set allegiances. The leaker said that their source insisted Henderson is wrong about this.
In the Reddit post, they explained how “Each fallen country is allied to either US or Russia. For example, Japan, South Korea, and Israel are allied with the US. China and Iran are allied with Russia.”
In response, Henderson reiterated what he had been told: “In the game, you have no pre-established allegiances. You’re free to fight for either side of the conflict.” However, he can’t outright dispute the new leaks, saying, “I’m just reporting on what I’m personally been told and may/may not have seen.”
Battlefield 6 is believed to be revealed in May, so we’re likely to know more about 2021’s game very soon.

Battlefield 6: Release date, leaks, rumors & battle royale
Battlefield 6 is set to release in 2021, and here’s everything we know about the FPS title including setting, launch date, and leaks.
The latest installment in EA and DICE’s legendary FPS is set to release this year, and with rumors and leaks building excitement, here’s everything we know about Battlefield 2021.
The franchise has remained pretty quiet since the release of Battlefield V back in 2018, but it remains one of the most popular FPS titles on the market. The series acts as the perfect alternative to the close-quarters combat of Call of Duty, bringing massive battles fought across vast locations throughout history.
After the disappointing reception to the Firestorm battle royale mode, EA and DICE didn’t release a new game in 2020, but with confirmation at EA Play that Battlefield 6 was in the works for 2021, anticipation immediately started to build.
Unsurprisingly, leaks and rumors are flooding the internet, with fans desperate to find any information they can about the upcoming release. From the game’s setting to the timeframe it’s set in, and even a potential release date, here’s everything we know about Battlefield 6.
Battlefield 6 release date
Unfortunately, we don’t have an exact release date for Battlefield 6 just yet, but in an investors call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson did confirm that they planned to reveal the game “in the spring,” and then “deliver the defining Battlefield experience in the 2021 holiday season.”
Most Battlefield games release in either October or November, but considering that many game developers are currently working from home, it’s possible this may push that timeline back a little. In their earnings call on May 11, EA confirmed that Battlefield 6 is on track to release in 2021.
According to DICE in April, the game was in the “daily playtesting mode,” focusing on “polishing and balancing as they attempt to make the best Battlefield they can.
When will Battlefield 6 be set?
There have been plenty of rumors about the timeline in which Battlefield 6 will be set, but most agree that we’re likely to find ourselves in an alternate reality of the modern-day.
According to well-known leaker Tom Henderson, the game will take place “around 10 years from now”, so that developers are able to “implement weapons and vehicles that are currently in military development today.”
One of these futuristic weapons is the combat robot dog that Henderson drew a picture of. These are in use by the military today, but will perhaps be even more powerful in the near future setting of Battlefield 6.
Where will Battlefield 6 be set?
As for where we’re going, that also remains a keenly guarded secret. Henderson has started to leak alleged information from the game’s first teaser, sharing drawings of what it will look like. One of the most detailed drawings is taken from the viewpoint of a pilot, flying towards a space station surrounded by trees.
Another drawing showed a zoomed-out look at this location, with the leaker then sharing a link to Google Earth, revealing that the space station appears to be Tanegashima Space Center in Japan.
Since this photo was posted by Henderson, screenshots believed to be from the reveal trailer surfaced online. It appears to be the same image Henderson drew from, but he said it’s likely to be from an early build of the trailer.
When will the Battlefield 6 trailer release?
DICE put Battlefield fans in a frenzy by saying, in April, that the reveal is coming “soon.” All leaks and rumors pointed towards the trailer releasing in May, but after a tongue-in-cheek tweet from DICE and EA chief Blake Jorgensen confirming in May that the reveal will be “next month,” we now understand the Battlefield 6 trailer will release in June.
Will Battlefield 6 have a battle royale?
All signs point to yes. In a leak posted to the Battlefield 6 subreddit, it was claimed that the game will have a free-to-play battle royale in March 2022 after DICE tested the waters with Firestorm in 2019.
Tom Henderson has also discussed a Battlefield battle royale in his livestreams, where he said he believes that DICE will release a battle royale midway through 2022, which will compete with CoD’s audience.
The appetite for a battle royale is certainly there, with popular streamer Dr Disrespect clearly excited by the prospect, but we’re still awaiting official confirmation from the developers.
Will Battlefield 6 be on PS4 and Xbox One?
Yes! In an investor earnings call on May 11, EA boss Andrew Wilson said that “Battlefield will be available for both current-gen and next-gen.”
After DICE said the game will be “brought to life” with the “power” of next-gen consoles, many presumed that the game would only release on the Xbox Series X|S and PS5, but we now know this is no longer the case.
Bear in mind that the game has been built for next-gen consoles, so expect Battlefield 6 for PS4 and Xbox One to be a stripped-back version, similar to Battlefield 4’s release on PS3 and PS4.
In a statement to GameSpot back in May 2020, EA confirmed that they would be releasing the game on the new consoles in an attempt to target “new innovation that will be enabled by next-gen platforms.”
This was the main reason EA and DICE decided not to release a Battlefield game in 2020, as the number of people who would have had either a PS5 or Xbox Series X would still be small compared to what it will be a year on.
That’s everything we know about Battlefield 2021! Once the official reveal happens in June, we’ll be bound to know more about the next installment of the shooter franchise.

Battlefield 6 will release on last-gen consoles, but is designed for PS5 and Xbox Series X
Battlefield 6 has been developed with next-gen consoles in mind, but EA has confirmed that the game will still release on Xbox One and PS4.
Although being designed as a “next-gen” experience for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, Battlefield 2021 is also confirmed to release on the PS4 and Xbox One.
Since EA and DICE confirmed that Battlefield 6 will be “brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs,” many believed that the game would only arrive on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. However, in their most recent investors call, EA clarified the situation.
In their investor earnings call of May 11, EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson said, “So yes, Battlefield will be available for both current-gen and next-gen as will our sports titles.”
EA further clarified what the game being built for next-gen will entail. “The reference specifically from our prepared remarks was around the nature of gameplay,” explained Wilson. “What we can do with fidelity of the game, what we can do with physics, artificial intelligence and the immersive nature of the game, and in the case of Battlefield, what we can do with respect to the amount of players that we can have in the game.
“The nature of destruction in those Only In Battlefield moments that are truly next-gen opportunities that we’re able to do in the context of our next-gen franchises because of the increased processing power and memory and output of the new consoles.”
So those unable to get their hands on these rare new consoles can still play Battlefield 6, although since the game is designed for next-gen, it may be a stripped-back version similar to Battlefield 4’s release on both the PS3 and PS4.
The game is also slated to arrive on Xbox Game Pass, so perhaps those playing Battlefield on an Xbox One will get a free upgrade when they move onto the next generation of console.
