A Battlefield 6 video meant for internal use at Electronic Arts has surfaced online, and it appears to confirm a near-future setting for the game.
The video appears to be a screen recording of a Discord call playing the trailer using screen sharing. A black rectangle in the center of the screen blocks a watermark put in place by EA to track down the leaker. It is currently available to watch on the Battlefield subreddit accompanied by an epilepsy warning.
In the video, we follow a squadron of helicopters as they fly into an active combat zone, then drop down to the infantry level to watch a space rocket take off, then collapse and explode on the ground. The video ends with a title card reading "Battlefield 6."
Reports indicate the video is not the same trailer EA plans to publish to reveal the game in June. The game itself is expected out in time for the 2021 holiday season.
