Battlefield fans have received a surprise news drop today (Thursday April 22), with details on the next mainline entry in the series as well as the reveal of a new mobile game. 

In a blog post on the EA website Oskar Gabrielson, the general manager at DICE, announced the next Battlefield game for consoles and PCs will be revealed “soon”.

Gabrielson said the next Battlefield game is a “jaw-dropping” experience that offers a “bold step” for the franchise.

And PS5 and Xbox Series X fans will get to experience this new chapter in the hit FPS series.

Gabrielson said: “2021 is an exciting time for us here at DICE. Working with more world-class development studios within Electronic Arts, we have our biggest team ever on a Battlefield game for console and PC. Our friends at Criterion and DICE LA are working with us on our shared vision for the game, while the team in Gothenburg is taking technology in the game to the next level. Together, we are creating a jaw-dropping experience for you to enjoy later in 2021.

“We’re in daily playtesting mode right now: polishing, balancing, and making the best possible Battlefield game we can. I can tell you it is a bold step. It has everything we love about Battlefield – and takes all of it to the next level. Epic scale. All-out military warfare. Crazy, unexpected moments. Game-changing destruction. Massive battles, packed with more players and mayhem than ever before. 

All brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs.

“Get ready for our reveal ‘soon™'”.

It remains to be seen when Battlefield 6 could be getting announced.

With E3 just around the corner EA could be planning on holding their typical EA Play Live event around June time this year.

That summer event is typically when EA drop their biggest announcements of the year.

Battlefield 5, however, was announced during a separate reveal in May 2018 that was hosted by Trevor Noah.

Could we see a bit of history repeating with Battlefield 6, with a standalone event being held to announce the game?

Elsewhere, DICE also revealed that a new Battlefield mobile game is in the works which launch in 2022.

Gabrielson said: “It’s always been our vision to bring Battlefield to more platforms. So, after years of prototyping, I’m super happy to be able to let you know that our friends at Industrial Toys, working closely with all of us here at DICE, are developing a completely new Battlefield game bringing all-out warfare to smartphones and tablets in 2022.

“Make no mistake, this is a standalone game. A completely different game from the one we’re making for console and PC, designed specifically for the mobile platform. It’s being built from the ground up by iToys to make Battlefield-on-the-go a reality and you can expect a fully-fledged, skill-based experience. This mobile game is now entering a testing period ahead of launching next year, so expect more details to come.

“I can’t wait to show you the two Battlefield games we have coming! In the meantime, stay safe, and play some Battlefield!”
