New Battlefield 6 leak reveals possible trailer release date & location
A new Battlefield 6 leaks claims we may see the first trailer soon, and reveals that Japan may be the location featured.
As hype continues to grow in anticipation for Battlefield 6, prominent leaker Tom Henderson has revealed the likely location that the game’s first trailer will be set in, along with a window for its release.
Battlefield remains one of the most popular FPS titles in history, with fans flocking to DICE’s sprawling masterpieces to take part in combat unlike any other game on the market. The prospect of a new Battlefield game is capturing the imaginations of players and streamers alike, with Dr Disrespect already excited at the idea of a possible battle royale.
With so much hype, it’s no surprise that people are searching for every little snippet of Battlefield 6 information they can find, and Tom Henderson has been one of the most active leakers for the game so far.
Having already suggested that part of the trailer will be set on a desert island, Henderson now claims that there will also be parts taking place in Japan, posting his theory on Twitter along with the news that the trailer is likely not far away.
In tweets posted on April 12, Henderson sketched out one of the shots from the upcoming trailer, showing the view of a pilot in a helicopter looking towards some sort of rocket launch.
He then posted another image, this time a more zoomed-out shot of the same location. Showing a coastline, the rockets are still visible; however, planes and helicopters are swarming towards the location.
A massive storm or tornado can be seen heading straight for the area, perhaps kicking off the story of Battlefield 6, although that hasn’t been confirmed.
Henderson finally posted a link to Google Earth, revealing that this portion appears to be set in Japan. The rocket launch seems to be taking place at the Tanegashima Space Center, found on a small island south of Japan.
The shoreline in the sketch looks almost identical to this location, leading many to believe this will be an exact recreation of the area.
In terms of when we’ll actually see the trailer, Henderson claims the release is “imminent,” but refrained from giving us an exact release date. EA have an investor call on Tuesday, May 11, so it’s likely we will see it before then, or possibly the day after the meeting.
Of course, as with any leaks, all this information needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, as things can change and the details may not be completely accurate. Thankfully, with Battlefield 6 scheduled for a Holiday 2021 release, we shouldn’t have long to wait for answers.

Battlefield 6 leaker reveals surprising location of first trailer
Leaker Tom Henderson has revealed the potential setting for Battlefield 6’s highly anticipated trailer, rumored to release around May.
Renowned leaker Tom Henderson has revealed new details for Battlefield 6’s highly anticipated trailer, reporting that it will take place in a single surprising location.
Typically, Battlefield trailers reveal a variety of locations in which the game will be set. Battlefield 1’s trailer is still regarded as one of the best, as it shows combat taking place across the trenches of France, the mountains of Italy, and the deserts of Egypt.
However, Battlefield V’s trailer focused on a single squad fighting in World War 2 France. According to renowned leaker Tom Henderson, Battlefield 2021’s trailer is set to follow suit with it taking place in a single location.
There have been many leaks and rumors surrounding Battlefield 6. An early rumor suggested the game will take place across multiple eras, with Tom Henderson then reporting otherwise, saying it will be set in the near future.
What most leaks have in common is that the trailer is set to release in Spring 2021, with Henderson believing it will drop “around May.” This trailer is also set to be a cinematic similar to Battlefield V’s, rather than a gameplay reveal.
After a Battlefield fan by the name of Sjofelumsk asked Henderson about rumors that Battlefield 6 will take place in Kazakhstan, Henderson said, “I’m not sure on the Kazakhstan thing. The trailer takes place on a desert island.”
The desert island location doesn’t reveal any more information on the game’s setting, as ‘desert island’ could refer to either a deserted island or an island with a desert biome. It’s interesting to see what the trailer might have in store, however.
EA and Dice like to create scripted gameplay scenarios in which a squad cinematically navigates the map. With this report that Battlefield 6’s trailer is set to take place on an island, it’s likely that Dice have taken a single location approach to show off the game’s new mechanics, weapons, and vehicles.
Henderson appears to be confident in the info he leaked, telling those who doubt his information that, “I genuinely have nothing to gain by lying. If you think I’m going to lie to then be mocked after reveal, you’re insane. I didn’t build a reputation for CoD leaks over 8 years for it then to be ripped away in 1 minute and 35 seconds.”

Dr Disrespect explains why he’s so excited for Battlefield 6’s Warzone competitor
Dr Disrespect is excited at the prospect of a Battlefield 6 battle royal, explaining the reasons why after a frustrating day on Warzone.
YouTube streamer Dr Disrespect is no stranger to battle royales, and the leader of the Champions Club has been explaining why he has high hopes for Battlefield 6 as frustrations continue to grow with Call of Duty: Warzone.
“Violence, speed, and momentum” is the iconic catchphrase of Dr Disrespect, and no game genre captures what the Doc is all about more than battle royales. From H1Z1 to PUBG, the Two-Time has spent years outlasting and dominating opponents.
Like many, the latest BR to capture the Doc’s attention is Warzone, but with the game struggling under the weight of bugs like the “no-glint” Sniper Rifle and never-ending update loops on consoles, there is a real appetite for a competitor to shake up the genre.
Rumors have been swirling about a second Battlefield BR mode, and it seems they have caught the attention of Doc, who explained why he was excited to get his hands on it, believing that DICE have learned from the mistakes of Battlefield V’s Firestorm.
After another frustrating day of Warzone on April 9, Dr Disrespect broke down why he’s looking forward to Battlefield’s next battle royale, claiming that DICE had no intentions of supporting Firestorm, and stating that the development team’s skill at making large maps could be important.
“I’m excited for Battlefield’s BR,” the Two-Time stated. “It’s a $120 billion industry and Warzone’s taken over this whole genre. [Firestorm] was like a pre-pre-alpha of it. ‘Let’s just get something out there, we won’t support it at all,’ and that’s exactly what they did.”
“I can tell you they didn’t give it any attention. I have a feeling that they’re really going to bring it for this next Battlefield. It’s going to be fast, explosive. I don’t know how much influence vehicles will have on the fights, but they do a really good job on bigger maps on how they balance some of that out.”
Clip starts at 4:05:11 for mobile users.
Neither EA nor DICE have officially confirmed that Battlefield 6 will have a battle royale mode on launch, but with the success of Warzone, alongside EA’s Apex Legends, it seems quite unlikely that they wouldn’t include one in their top FPS franchise.
Whether they learn from the disappointing release of Firestorm remains to be seen though. The mode was highly anticipated, but a lack of developer support and issues with the looting system saw fans drop it fairly quickly, with Warzone exploding in popularity just a few months later.
Despite all this, Dr Disrespect is desperate to get his hands on a Battlefield 6 battle royale, but whether it can truly compete with Call of Duty’s BR king remains to be seen.
