The announcement of Battlefield 6 is imminent: The reveal event will take place on June 9th. As reports, Electronic Arts has a well-known addition: According to the report, Byron Beede is now in charge of Battlefield as General Manager. Beede previously worked at Activision, where he was responsible, among other things, for Destiny and the Call of Duty franchise - also as General Manager. For example, while at Activision, Call of Duty Mobile (2019) and Call of Duty Warzone (2020) were released. According to the report, Beede will report directly to Respawn founder and DICE LA boss Vince Zampella in his new position.

Meanwhile, fans are eagerly awaiting the presentation of Battlefield 6. Several leaks have appeared in the past few weeks which showed, among other things, screenshots from a reveal trailer. Shortly afterwards, the entire trailer was published in advance on the Internet. It remains to be seen whether DICE has prepared another video for the reveal event next week.

Battlefield 6's ambitious online plans signal big shift for EA

EA has recruited a former Call of Duty exec to help grow the Battlefield series. 

The company recently announced it has hired former Call of Duty General Manager, Byron Beede, as the General Manager and Senior Vice President on the Battlefield (via IGN). With EA saying that the hire 'signals a strategic, long-term commitment to the growth of the franchise'.

But it's Beede's experience that is most interesting. Beede has previously been the General Manager of both the Call of Duty and Destiny franchises, most notably worked on the launch of Call of Duty's live service offering, Call of Duty Mobile and Call of Duty: Warzone.

While Beede is set to focus primarily on the future of the Battlefield franchise, his knowledge of live service games will likely be a huge boon to Battlefield 6. 

After all, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said during an earnings call earlier this year that the company already has a plan in mind for Battlefield 6, and that it will launch as a 'AAA premium experience' but grow bigger over time with live service elements to ensure the game gets 'long-term engagement'. 

While the details of these 'live Service elements' haven't been confirmed yet, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Battlefield 6 receive regular content updates, battle passes and seasons like we've seen with Call of Duty. With Beede in a senior position, we imagine he will take a major role in laying out this live service strategy and it's likely we'll see Battlefield follow a similar model to Call of Duty.

We're hoping we learn more about Battlefield 6's live service approach at the game's official reveal on June 9.
