Battlefield 6 cross-gen

Battlefield 6 will be cross-gen, therefore available not only on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X | S but also on previous generation consoles, PS4 and Xbox One: news that has triggered inevitable controversy, prompting Andy McNamara to invite everyone to calm down. .

The point is that just a few days ago EA confirmed the release of Battlefield 6 on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, and all fans of the series were expecting great things from the next-gen exclusive, instead having the feeling of a limited and abandoned project after the news of the last few hours.

"I see concern about the news about the cross-gen nature of the new Battlefield and would like to ask you kindly to wait for more details," wrote McNamara . "Just because one thing is true, another can't be true."

Former editor of Game Informer magazine, McNamara is currently in charge of Electronic Arts communications regarding the shooters and titles belonging to the Star Wars franchise.

It is clear and evident that the team developer is convinced of the qualities of Battlefield 6 and of the fact that the game will fully exploit the potential of next-gen platforms despite the decision to also release on PS4 and Xbox One.
