Multiple reports coming out this morning saying essentially the same thing. The next Battlefield game, which we are calling Battlefield 6 for now, will support game modes that include up wo 128 players, and offer backwards compatibility with previous generations of consoles. I am looking at you PlayStation 4 and Xbox One X.
Interestingly, he said that 128 player game modes will be only for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles (and PC). So if you are running a last gen console, now might be a good time to start saving if you want to get in on the 128 player awesomeness.
The leaker of this nugget of information is Tom Henderson, and he said that the game will be a “full reboot” of the franchise.
When it comes to Battlefield 6 releasing on last-gen consoles, I understand there’s going to be a lot of people a little bit annoyed within the community because it essentially means that the current-gen version is going to be limited in some aspects.
However, I’ve been told that is simply not the case, and a completely different studio or a different part of [DICE] is working on the previous-gen version and it’s something that we simply should not be worried about.
What do you guys think about this latest Battlefield news?
