While EA has not revealed any major info regarding this year’s Battlefield game (tentatively titled Battlefield 6) aside from the title will be revealed in spring 2021, and that it’ll ship this holiday, the publisher has opened up a bit about the game, though with nothing too specific.
During EA’s quarterly financials report, the publisher said that Battlefield 6 will usher in “a new generation of Battlefield,” which could mean a lot of things. Well, if this latest rumor is to be believed, this year’s Battlefield will give something fans always wanted and that’s full-on destruction!
Reliable leaker Tom Henderson (LongSensation on YouTube) has talked about some of the stuff he’s head and tweeted about it too, which caused quite a stir among the Battlefield community.

Of course, that tweet alone doesn’t really make sense, right? Henderson has uploaded a new video talking about some fo the new stuff he’s heard, and they do seem like plausible stuff. However, don’t forget, all the stuff listed here are based on leaks and as such, should be taken with a grain of salt.
According to Henderson, Battlefield 6 will feature “Levolution on steroids,” or to put it more simply, it will feature full-on, unscripted destruction! Remember how in Battlefield 4, the big skyscraper in Siege of Shanghai crumbled the same regardless which part it was damaged? According to Henderson, that will change in Battlefield 6, as players will be able to take down structures in a more dynamic way, and what’s more, will be able to destroy buildings and whatnot with less restrictions compared to past Battlefield games. Of course, there are exceptions or structures that cannot be destroyed completey (most likely for game balance), but as far as destruction goes, prepare for something big!
In addition to that, Henderson also states that not only will Battlefield 6 feature a Battle Pass — something most shooter fans are most likely expecting, but the title will also feature “free-to-play” (F2P) elements as well. However, whatever this F2P element is, Henderson isn’t really privy to it, though he suspects it will be a battle royale component much like what Activision did with Call of Duty Warzone and the mainline entries.
Regarding squads, Henderson mentions that DICE is once again sticking to a four-class system — something the studio has used since Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
Again, treat everything here with a grain of salt, as none of these have been confirmed by EA or DICE. But given his track record, and how plausible all these seem, don’t be surprised to hear of the same stuff when the game is revealed later this year.
