Rumors that a Triple-A first-person shooter game is highly likely to launch on Xbox Game Pass in Fall have led to speculation that this is Battlefield 6.
The Battlefield 6 rumor mill has been continuously turning, with details of the game supposedly being leaked. The content and settings of the game are still unconfirmed, but we know for definite that Battlefield’s 2021 title will launch in the Holiday season.
Talking on The XboxEra Podcast, Shpeshal Ed revealed a rumor that, “There is a third party, Triple-A, first-person shooter that is very highly likely to be launching in Game Pass this fall.”
Also talking on the podcast, Jon Clarke, the co-founder and Editor in Chief of XboxEra, explains that when you say “triple-A, third party, first-person shooter,” there are two franchises releasing games in 2021 that come to mind: Call of Duty and Battlefield.
It’s highly unlikely that Call of Duty 2021 will launch as part of Xbox Games Pass, as Activision already have an exclusivity deal with PlayStation. Therefore, Battlefield 6 is the most likely candidate.
“My other bet would be Battlefield 6 because the EA Play relationship already exists,” Clarke explained. “And I’m sure Microsoft are sharing lots and lots of lovely numbers on what it does for a player base when you’ve got 20 million people immediately available to play your game.”

EA Play, EA’s subscription service, has now joined Game Pass, offering almost the entire backlog of Battlefield games to Game Pass owners, as well as free trials for the latest titles. This deal makes it very possible that Battlefield 6 will be available on the Game Pass.
Shpeshal Ed rebutted saying that Back4Blood is also releasing in Fall, but those on the podcast weren’t sure it would qualify as a Triple-A game. That leaves only Battlefield 6.
With Xbox acquiring Bethesda and having some of their games launch exclusively on the Xbox and PC, it’s clear that Microsoft is making moves to acquire the biggest franchises for Game Pass.
We reiterate that this is only a rumor for now, and all signs point towards Battlefield 6 being on Game Pass, but whether it’s a launch title remains to be seen.

DICE confirms Battlefield 6 next-gen consoles only, teaser coming soon
DICE have revealed new details about Battlefield 2021, confirming it will only be on the new consoles, a reveal is coming “soon,” and more.
Electronic Arts and Dice have revealed some new details about Battlefield 2021, including confirmation of which consoles the shooter will arrive on, and that a reveal will be coming “soon.”
As we near the reveal for Battlefield 6, fans are desperate for any information on the latest Battlefield title. While leaks and rumors have been circulating, EA and DICE have kept their cards close to their chest.
However, DICE have provided an update on the future of Battlefield, which has revealed some exciting new details on 2021’s installment.
They have said that this year, they have “the biggest Battlefield development team ever working on our console and PC game for this Holiday season” as they work with “more world-class development studios within Electronic Arts.”
In this reveal, we finally have confirmation if Battlefield 2021 will be on next-gen consoles only. DICE said that all of these new features will be “brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs.” So from this announcement, we understand that this year’s Battlefield title will be on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles only, as well as PC.
While Battlefield 2021 may not arrive on Xbox One and PS4s, it’s rumored that it will launch on Xbox Game Pass on day one. There is also no word if Battlefield 6 will feature crossplay, but as this has become industry standard, it’s highly likely.
DICE revealed that Battlefield 6 is now in the “daily playtesting mode” where they’re “polishing, balancing,” and making the best possible Battlefield game they can.
They promised that Battlefield 2021 has “everything we love about Battlefield,” including “Epic scale,” “Crazy, unexpected moments,” and “Massive battles, packed with more players and mayhem than ever before.”
While there is no confirmation of when Battlefield 6 will be revealed, DICE said that we should get ready for their reveal “soon™” with a cheeky wink.

Battlefield Mobile: Release date, details, gameplay, setting
EA is bringing an epic, new Battlefield experience to mobile and tablet, here are all the big details such as its release date and gameplay.
EA is finally bringing an exclusive Battlefield game to mobile and tablets, so get all the latest information on DICE’s Battlefield Mobile: including its release date, and crucial details such as setting and gameplay features.
For years Battlefield has reigned on consoles and PCs, delivering one rich, compelling war experience after another. From the acclaimed Bad Company series to the epic Battlefield 2142, EA’s premiere first-person shooter franchise has been the king of large-scale gunplay.
But now, as well as a next-gen-only Battlefield game, players will be able to enjoy the same authentic feeling in the palms of their hands thanks to Battlefield Mobile.
Here’s everything we know about Battlefield Mobile on tablet and phones.
Battlefield Mobile release date
The game’s official press release indicated that DICE is “developing a completely new Battlefield game bringing all-out warfare to smartphones and tablets in 2022.”
So unless the game’s development is disrupted in some way, we can expect to be hands-on with Battlefield Mobile in 2022.
Battlefield Mobile setting
The much-lauded franchise has explored different reaches of human history with games set in different World Wars, the present day, and even way into the future.
DICE has indicated that Battlefield Mobile will be “A completely different game from the one we’re making for console and PC, designed specifically for the mobile platform.”
So whereas the new console version of Battlefield is rumored to be set during an alternate modern-day, it seems likely that Battlefield Mobile will venture off in a different direction.
Battlefield Mobile gameplay
Harnessing the power of state-of-the-art consoles and PCs, Battlefield has always been capable of housing huge skirmishes in war-torn maps with up to 64-players.
With Battlefield Mobile being a standalone game, it’s uncertain how many players a lobby will be able to hold. Smartphones have come a long way from the flip phones of yesteryear, but they are still limited by technology.
DICE has also confirmed that “This mobile game is now entering a testing period ahead of launching next year, so expect more details to come.” So it hopefully shouldn’t be too long until we know more.
Once more official details about Battlefield Mobile reach us we’ll be sure to update this page and keep you up-to-date with all the happenings with the game.
Also, make sure you’re on top of DICE’s PS5 & Xbox Series X-only Battlefield game with all the latest on the next console and PC version of Battlefield.

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.
