Henderson claims that the official trailer of the next "Battlefield" game is set to launch anytime this month. Aside from the official announcement, Henderson has provided fans with a plethora of information about the upcoming title. Lately, the insider shared another image on Twitter, showing a couple of combat-oriented robot dog sketches.

According to him, these robot dogs would be an option in the upcoming "Battlefield" title. Many fans commented on Twitter that EA and DICE have definitely made the game futuristic and some gamers might not be ready for it yet. Others are actually disappointed about this, saying they are not fans of futuristic settings.

Whether or not the official announcement of the new "Battlefield" happens on May 6 remains to be seen. However, it is worth noting that these details are not official. Fans should temper their expectations and take this information with a pinch of salt.

EA and DICE already confirmed that a new "Battlefield" title is in the works. The game is originally set to release sometime in the latter part of 2021. There has been no word on the launch platforms of the upcoming "Battlefield" title. Rumors have it, however, that it might release on PC, previous generation consoles' Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and new generation consoles' PS5, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.
