Battlefield 6 is currently in the works and slated for a 2021 holiday season release.

Oskar Gabrielson, DICE General Manager, authored a post on EA's official news blog detailing the newest developments concerning both Battlefield 6 and a new mobile adaptation for the franchise. Despite its brevity and tight-lipped appearance, Gabrielson makes some interesting allusions to gameplay changes, improvements, and combat advancements within the game.

"I can tell you it is a bold step," he wrote, "It has everything we love about Battlefield—and takes all of it to the next level."

New Battlefield Game to be Released 'Soon'

According to Gabrielson, Battlefield 6 will feature "all-out military warfare" with "massive battles" that include more players and even more of the engaging chaos that the series is known for. He called the sheer size of what's to come "epic" and meant to involve thrilling, unexpected moments throughout the game--some of which will involve "game-changing destruction."

Like many new titles headed to the gaming world within the year, Gabrielson makes particular note to the capabilities now availed to DICE developers through the next-generation consoles and ever-evolving PC hardware.

Battlefield 6 is currently being worked on by the "biggest team ever" within the franchise. Criterion and DICE LA are engaging in the immediate sphere while those over at Gothenburg are focusing on making as many technological advances to the game's core as possible.

"We are creating a jaw-dropping experience for you to enjoy later in 2021." He wrote.

The game's official reveal will be coming "soon."
