KEY POINTS

  • EA has earlier announced that the next "Battlefield" game would be revealed in June
  • It confirmed that the game would be released on current and new generation consoles
  • Earlier rumors suggested the game would feature a futuristic setting
  • These rumors, as well as the game's official name, may have been confirmed in a leak

The official name of the next "Battlefield" game as well as earlier rumors about it having a futuristic setting may have been confirmed by a new set of leaked screenshots.

The screenshots were leaked via Tom Henderson's Discord server. They were then posted on Imgur and cleaned by Twitter user Alaricdhuman.

Henderson confirmed the veracity of the leak and verified through a tweet that these images are not a hoax. One of the supposed leaked images also confirmed the game's official name with the supposed logo showing the text "BATTLEFIELD" in a blue color scheme.

Interestingly, the blurred images seemingly confirmed earlier rumors about the next "Battlefield" game. One of the images shows the combat-themed robot while another image features a rocket launch. Some fans may find these screenshots familiar because Henderson shared some sketches about them in the past.

While Henderson has a good track record, fans have no way of knowing if these supposed leaked "Battlefield" images are genuine until the official trailer is released. Fans should therefore temper their expectations and take this new leak with skepticism.

Meanwhile, video game publisher Electronic Arts confirmed earlier that it would announce the next "Battlefield" game sometime in June.

The sixth "Battlefield" series installment is on track to launch on consoles and PC in the later part of this year. EA confirmed that the game would be available on both current generation and new generation gaming consoles. It also debunked earlier rumors that it would only release the title on PS5 and Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. 

"Battlefield will be available for both current-gen and next-gen as will our sports titles," EA CEO Andrew Wilson said during its recent earnings call.

"The game has everything fans love about Battlefield," Wilson added. "We’re excited to reveal the game to fans next month and share a lot more over the summer."

According to Wilson, he had "nothing to announce at the moment on either an annualised release of Battlefield and/or the nature of the modes in the upcoming game." He then noted, "We're going to talk about a lot around that in the months to come, starting next month with our reveal trailer."
