Battlefield 6 could be released on Xbox Game Pass on the first day according to a new rumor.
The claim comes from the Xbox-centric podcast, Xbox Era, just below, in which a commenter reveals that Battlefield 6 could come to Xbox Game Pass at launch.
Could Battlefield 2021 be a Game Pass Day 1 title? This is what @Shpeshal_Ed said of the XboxEra podcast https://t.co/l4RYoEmIOq #Battlefield #Xbox pic.twitter.com/EZxBRqHlDHApril 5, 2021
Soon after, the famous Battlefield leaker Tom henderson supported the podcast host’s comment, in a tweet that simply used Robert Redford’s nod gif. That could It should be read as a sign that Henderson believes the rumor to be true or it could also be seen as the leaker simply excited about the idea of Battlefield 6 releasing on Game Pass.
Of course, nothing has been confirmed by EA or Xbox so far, and Battlefield 6 hasn’t even been properly announced by the previous company. Last year, EA quietly revealed that Battlefield 6 would launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X sometime during the following year in 2021.
Since then, there have been a number of leaks and rumors surrounding the game. One leaker claimed that Battlefield 6 could support up to 128 players on massively multiplayer maps, and another rumor claimed that the game would revert to a modern setting, deviating from the 20th century settings of Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 5. However, earlier this year, another leaker claimed that the unannounced game would take place roughly a decade from now and feature robots, drones, and other slightly futuristic methods of warfare.
Whether or not this latest rumor is true, we’ll have to wait to see what EA has planned. For now, however, Battlefield 6 is on track to launch later this year in 2021, and it recently received support from developer Criterion, who was hired by EA to help the shooter cross the finish line.
