New Battlefield 2021 game leaks have surfaced on Reddit which suggests the title could be one of the biggest Battlefield games ever.
According to the leak, posted on r/battlefield6, the game will in fact have a Battle Royale mode for players to experience in game.
Battlefield tested the waters with Battle Royale mode with Fireteam mode in Battlefield before, but the mode failed to gain much traction after being locked behind the game’s paywall and dwindling player base.
The leak claims that a Battle Royale mode is in fact returning for the 2021 Battlefield game, but as of now, it’s not confirmed how EA plans to distribute the mode – whether it will be free to play or included with the game.
This leak also claims that MP will support ‘up to 128 players’ in select game modes as DICE pushes the boundaries of next-gen consoles and PC. Leaker also reveals that favorite maps from older Battlefield games will return, like Wake Island, Metro, Locker.
However, the biggest and most interesting feature noted by the leaker is the new feature coming as part of the core gameplay experience. This is just a rumor and not confirmed, but if true, could become a significant part of the experience.
The game, which does not have an official title per this person, will be a “hub for all previous Battlefield titles.” Players will have the ability to “boot up servers” and play versions of old Battlefield games, like 1942, or let some players access the 1942 arsenal while others can use the Battlefield 3 weapons in game.
Here’s the description the leaker gave:
Essentially the game (no official title yet) is going to be a hub for most, if not all, previous Battlefield titles. You will be able to boot up servers playing exclusively 1942, or even have the option to play with settings so one team has access to 1942 weapons/vehicles and the other team has access to BF3 weapons/vehicles. An example given was teams fighting Panzers vs M1 Abrams. Additionally, these settings include core gameplay mechanics, such as not being able to sprint with 1942 settings and not being able to go prone with Bad Company settings. I’m not sure how this affects balancing issues.
This leak is not verified, but a moderator on r/Battlefield6 says that the user who posted this was able to show proof that the source of the leak is someone who is “close to the game” and project.
Battlefield 2021 is confirmed to launch in Holiday 2021. EA recently confirmed that they have seen the “first version” of the game’s reveal trailer. Recent leaks have suggested that EA is targeting a May reveal date for the title.

New leak claims Battlefield 6 may not have a campaign
Renowned leaker Tom Henderson has revealed that it’s unlikely Battlefield 6 will feature a single-player campaign.
Industry insider Tom Henderson, who has leaked a ton of Battlefield 6 details, has revealed that it’s likely 2021’s installment of the first-person shooter won’t feature a campaign.
Battlefield’s campaigns have been hit and miss for players. The Bad Company series and Battlefield 1’s “War Stories” are considered highlights, but many others are considered forgettable.
We’ve received a ton of information about the next Battlefield, including its title, setting, and the possibility of a battle royale. The one aspect of the game very little is known about is the campaign, and leaker and industry insider Tom Henderson believes the game may not feature a campaign at all.
Henderson took to Twitter to counter a recent Reddit leak that contradicted some of his reporting. He shot down the leak that, “If you were on the US team, you could choose a US, Australian, British, French, Japanese, or German soldier,” saying that “This is not correct.”
He then revealed that “You’re a group of individuals from fallen nations – You’re free to fight to fight for which ever side you want. So in theory a Japanese soldier could fight for both the USA and Russia.”
After players understood this to be the plot and mechanics for the campaign, Henderson clarified that it isn’t. He said: “I’ve not heard there’s a campaign.” He continued to say that what he “originally heard on it was actually the plot.”
Here, he refers to the leak that Battlefield 6 would have a “revolutionary campaign.” In a follow-up to this leak, Henderson said on March 30, “The information given to me was interpreted as campaign information, but is actually the backstory of the game itself. So as of yet, a campaign is not confirmed.”
We reached out to Tom Henderson and he clarified that because neither he nor anyone else has heard anything about a campaign, “it kind of leans to the fact that there isn’t a campaign this year.”
With the trailer expected to drop after EA’s investment call in May, we’re likely to know much more about the next installment of the shooter franchise soon.

Battlefield 6 may not release on PS4 & Xbox One
PS4 and Xbox One owners may be disappointed to hear rumors that the latest Battlefield 6 will potentially be exclusive to the new generation of consoles.
Battlefield fans who are yet to pick up a next-generation console may be disappointed as leaker reveals the developers are considering scrapping release on PS4 & Xbox One as a whole.
Both the PS4 and Xbox One have been difficult to purchase since their respective releases last year. This may be even more devastating for those looking to pick up Battlefield 6 on their last-gen consoles.
Battlefield 6 is set to release this year, with the reveal trailer arriving sometime this summer. Not a lot is known about EA’s latest installment in the series, with some speculating it could be set in the future.
Although there is no concrete evidence, reliable leaker, @_Tom_Henderson_, has not yet heard of Battlefield 6 coming to the now past generation of consoles.
It is possible that PS4 and Xbox One aren’t the focus of EA’s new release, but could still be arriving on the last-gen of consoles upon release.
However, the fact that there has been no news and we are getting ever closer to the reveal and release, leads Tom to believe there is a strong possibility that it won’t be coming to PS4 and Xbox One.
Further, this also leads Tom to believe Battlefield 6 will be releasing on Xbox Game Pass. The loss of players from the older generation of consoles will be a big hit to the day one player count.
However, this loss can be balanced by being introduced on the Xbox Game Pass, leading to a wave of new players on the Xbox Series X.
Whatever happens, it’s safe to say that if you are still in need of the next generation of consoles, you should try your best to get one as soon as possible, especially if you’re a fan of the Battlefield series.

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 6.
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 found 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 investor’s 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.
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.”
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.
When will the Battlefield 6 trailer release?
The good news on this front is that it appears we’re not far away from the release of the trailer. Henderson believes it is “imminent,” but wasn’t able to give an exact date.
We do know that EA has an investor call on Tuesday, May 11, so it’s possible we see it around that date. Otherwise, we’ll likely get our first glimpse at Battlefield 6 at E3 2021 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 battle royale after DICE tested the waters with Firestorm in 2019, but were unable to say whether it will be free-to-play like rival Warzone or only available to those who buy the full game.
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?
There’s no official word on whether Battlefied 6 will come to last-gen consoles like the PS4 or Xbox One, with DICE only talking about next-gen consoles so far.
A new leak from Henderson claims he is still yet to hear anything concrete that Battlefield 6 will appear on older consoles, and currently believes that it won’t. He suggests this is the reason behind another rumor that states the new title will be on Xbox Game Pass from day one, in the hopes that it will boost the amount of people playing it on release day.
In a statement to GameSpot back in May 2020, EA confirmed that they would be releasing the game’s 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 amount 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.
