Due to poor sales for Battlefield 5, EA may be ditching a number for the next entry in the long-running franchise. There are rumors that they are working on a remaster of Battlefield 3 as well.
Compared to most of the games in the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield 5 grossly underperformed selling just over 7 million copies. It fared even worse when the numbers stacked up to the series’ previous entry Battlefield 1 – which sold well over 15 million copies.
According to reliable sources, it seems like EA may be considering releasing the newest game without a number at the end of it.
There’s also a possibility that EA has some of their team working on one of the most popular Battlefield games too in Battlefield 3.
Battlefield 6 rebranding
The leak comes from Viral Junkie CEO – Tom Henderson. He has been right on many occasions using his sources within the industry to deliver accurate leaks.
In his latest YouTube video, he discusses several rumored aspects of the new Battlefield game. He also discusses how the game may be getting a title change.
Henderson says: “I believe it’s either going to be called Battlefield 6, or simply Battlefield.”
Reasons for this are that Call of Duty has recently gone down this road with 2019’s Modern Warfare reboot. He also points out that he doesn’t believe Bad Company 3 will be the name of this game either.
The thinking behind ditching the “6” in favor of just Battlefield is the general feeling that it would be a continuation of the poorly-received Battlefield 5. Meaning EA wants this to feel new and distant from the previous entry in the series.
7 months ago a YouTuber by the name of Daqarie posted a video showing apparent footage or information about a Battlefield 3 remaster.
Daqarie has previously leaked BF1 and BF5 information that turned out to be accurate. But the BF3 remaster video on their YouTube channel has since been removed. It’s unclear if this was their own choice or because they were asked to take it down.
Henderson says that the YouTuber got their information from a QA Tester at EA, who no longer works there. So at this juncture, it’s a bit hard to be invested in the prospect of a remaster.
He also goes on to say that it makes no sense to do a remaster. Henderson explains: “It splits the player base and the community and overall I think that Call of Duty releasing two titles at the same time, with a remaster, made sense because you had Infinite Warfare, which was a futuristic title, then you had Modern Warfare which was a modern title.”
- Skip to 1:55 for Battlefield rebranding
- Skip to 4:54 for Battlefield 3 Remastered
Unless the remaster is only going to be the campaign, like Modern Warfare 2 did, it would make very little sense for EA to have two online communities of similar style games running simultaneously.
As for both stories, we are primarily going off of the leaks reported by Tom Henderson so there is nothing official yet regarding Battlefield 6.
Once EA do begin to roll out factual information for us, we’ll report it here.

Dr Disrespect explains why Battlefield 2042 needs to release a battle royale
Dr Disrespect went on a tangent during a recent stream explaining why a Battle Royale mode is a must for Battlefield 2042.
With the news that Battlefield 2042 won’t have a dedicated battle royale at launch, or possibly ever, Dr Disrespect has weighed in on the matter, shutting down people who don’t believe it needs one to compete with Warzone.
Make no mistake that even a few years after it hit the mainstream, battle royale continues to be as popular as it ever has been. Fortnite was the obvious breakout star when it came to the revolutionary concept, and it’s now into Season 7 and is arguably hotter than ever.
Call of Duty launched its own competition with Black Ops IIII’s Blackout mode and then went all-in with their free-to-play Warzone game. The game has been embraced by millions of players worldwide and is a big hit on streaming platforms with big names such as NICKMERCS and Aydan.
The Battlefield 2042 trailer recently launched to great fanfare, but it was learned that the game will launch with no campaign or battle royale mode. Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV AKA Dr Disrespect has given his say on why he feels Battlefield needs a battle royale mode.
On the Battlefield 2042 trailer, many fans made it known that they were disinterested in a battle royale mode and believe that the franchise excels in its purely focused multiplayer component.
“Are you guys idiots? BR is just getting started, so much you can do, so many different engines, so many different fictions, and games and designs. The hell are you guys talking about? These are the same people that are trapped in a box,” Dr Disrespect said.
The notion of battle royale being burnt out is probably a common misconception as Fortnite and Warzone are still regularly pumping big numbers for live streams and tournaments.
Doc also went on to say, “I want the multiplayer but I also want BR too, especially on that engine – woo.”
Given how unfavorably Battlefield V’s battle royale, Firestorm, fared, it’s fair to assume that EA is just being a bit cautious about going down that road again.
It does make sense for the company to deliver its bread and butter – high-quality, action-packed, large-scale warfare over a ginormous map. We’ll have to wait and see if battle royale is added in the future.

Dr Disrespect explains how Battlefield 2042 could reignite CoD rivalry
After loving Battlefield 2042’s reveal trailer, Dr Disrespect explained how this year’s title could reignite the franchise’s rivalry with CoD.
Dr Disrespect has long been fed up with Warzone and the current state of gaming but believes Battlefield 2042 could bring back the rivalry with Call of Duty.
Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV, who streams under the alias “Dr Disrespect,” has been having a bad time with Warzone recently, saying that he’s “over” the game and might take a break from streaming if another game doesn’t come out soon. Lamenting the game’s audio, visibility, and the state of solos, Doc has said that Battlefield 2042 will be the competition Warzone needs.
In the mid-2010s, Call of Duty and Battlefield were the shooter franchises to buy, with both franchises putting out action-packed, cinematic trailers to rival the other game. After watching Battlefield 2042’s epic reveal trailer, streamer Dr Disrespect believes that the two franchises’ once-great rivalry could reignite.
Throughout Battlefield 2042’s official reveal trailer Dr Disrespect looked impressed throughout and said afterward, “They’re bringing showtime.”
“I’ve gotta be honest, that was a fantastic trailer man. Action-packed. Kind of reminds me of the old days to a certain degree. Remember when Call of Duty was putting out these big trailers and then it was back and forth between Battlefield…I feel like we lost some of that competition the past couple of years, I don’t know why…but I’m liking this.”
Although Doc enjoyed the cinematic trailer, he was quite disappointed that no gameplay was shown. He explained how he’s especially excited for the gameplay reveal on June 13, and here’s how to watch it.
Dr Disrespect has previously said he’s especially excited for a Battlefield battle royale, which he believes could emulate Warzone’s success and be the rival it needs.
While Battlefield 2042 won’t have a battle royale at launch, a recent report claims that 2021’s Call of Duty Vanguard will launch with a brand new WW2-themed map. The competition is set to be fierce at the end of the year, which can only improve both franchises.
