‘Battlefield 6’ will not be a next-generation exclusive.

It was a relatively simple choice for EA to embrace all console generations. Given that the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S just released in November, as well as the aforementioned inventory and scalper problems, EA would be missing out on a huge instal base if it didn’t release a Battlefield update for the PS4 and Xbox One.

The next instalment in EA’s iconic Battlefield franchise would not need a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S console.

Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson during the company’s latest earnings call confirmed that the next game in the long-running first-person shooter franchise will be available for both current-gen (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) and next-gen systems. That’s especially good news for gamers that haven’t yet been able to get their hands on a new console due to inventory issues as well as those that are still milking value from current-gen machines.

Wilson also noted that they have four studios focused on making the game “the best possible Battlefield it can be.”

 

Earlier this week, the official Twitter account for Battlefield teased a potential reveal in June.

Oh, and the game is also coming to the PC, should you have little interest in playing it on a console.

The new Battlefield game is expected sometime in the third quarter of this year.
