Battlefield 6: EA comments on the platforms - offers everything that fans love

Battlefield 6

Battlefield 6 is not only available for PS5, Xbox Series X and PC. In a current annual report, EA boss Andrew Wilson announced that the new first-person shooter will also appear on PS4 and Xbox One. "Battlefield will appear on both the current-gen and next-gen consoles," says the manager. The same applies to the upcoming sports games such as FIFA 22, Madden NFL 22 and NHL 22. Fans had previously asked themselves whether the new Battlefield will also be available for the older console models. In a blog post, the developers explicitly mentioned a next-gen first-person shooter.

Wilson's statements suggest that this primarily affects gameplay - and what you can do with physics, for example , the artificial intelligence and the already massive properties of the first person shooter. The focus is also on the destruction feature, which you want to bring to a new level in the new Battlefield. According to Wilson, the additional hardware power of the PS5 and Xbox Series X help with this endeavor. EA's CFO Blake Jorgensen added that the new Battlefield was "great" on both console generations, but "even more spectacular" on the new systems.

Even before the announcement of Battlefield 6, the first screenshots of the new first-person shooter were leaked. var lstExcludedArticleTicker = '1371950,1371850,1371443,1371338'; "The game has everything that fans love about Battlefield," said Wilson, adding that they are already looking forward to the announcement in June. In the course of the summer there will be more details about the new first person shooter. As soon as we have additional information, you will find out as usual on our website. The new Battlefield is slated to hit the market in the fall.


Our biggest Battlefield 6 question has just been answered

There are very few details about the next Battlefield game that are out in the open at the moment, but EA and DICE have slowly been revealing more as time goes on. The companies have been teasing a full Battlefield 6 reveal for June, but while we wait for that to roll around, EA has shared one more key detail about the game. In a call with investors following its Q4 2021 earnings report, EA confirmed which platforms Battlefield 6 will run on.

Specifically, EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that the game will run on last-generation consoles in response to a question toward the middle of the call. “So yes, Battlefield will be available for both current-gen and next-gen as will our sports titles,” Wilson said.

While most of us probably assumed that Battlefield 6 would be available both on next-gen consoles and last-gen ones, it’s nice to have this confirmation. When DICE confirmed Battlefield 6 for a 2021 release back in April, it didn’t mention platforms specifically but said that the game would be “brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs,” leaving some question about the fate of last-gen consoles and whether or not they were being left out in the cold.

That’s not the case apparently, even though in its prepared remarks before the Q&A session, EA indicated that Battlefield 6 was being developed with Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 in mind. “The reference specifically from our prepared remarks is around the nature of gameplay – what we can do with fidelity of the game, what we can do with physics, artificial intelligence and the immersive nature of the game,” Wilson added.

“And in the case of Battlefield, what we can do with respect to the amount of players that we can have in the game and the nature of destruction in those only in Battlefield moments that are truly next-gen opportunities that we’re able to do in the context of our next-gen franchises because of the increased processing power in memory and output of the new consoles.”

So, it’s clear that Battlefield 6 will have some obvious improvements when running on next-gen consoles, but with a global chip shortage restricting supply of the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5 – something that doesn’t seem like it’s going to end anytime soon – it’s nice to have confirmation that those who don’t manage to get a new console by the time Battlefield 6 comes out will still be able to play on last-gen platforms. Here’s hoping we get to see some of the differences between the last-gen and current-gen versions in the lead up to release.
