Shortly after, stored battlefield leaker Tom Henderson threw his weight behind the comment from the podcast host in a tweet that simply used Robert Redford nodding gif. To could read as a sign that Henderson thinks the rumor is true, or it can also be seen as the delicious one that is just thrilled with the idea of Battlefield 6 being launched on Game Pass.
Of course, nothing has been confirmed by either EA or Xbox right now, and Battlefield 6 has not even been properly announced by the former company. Last year, EA quietly revealed that Battlefield 6 would launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X at some point in the following year in 2021
Since then, there have been a number of leaks and rumors surrounding the game. One leaker claimed that Battlefield 6 could support up to 128 players on massive multiplayer maps, and another rumor claimed that the game would return to a modern setting that differs from 20th century settings for Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 5. Earlier this year, however, another leak claimed that the unannounced game would take place about a decade from now and that it would have robots, drones and other slightly futuristic warfare methods.
Whether this latest rumor turns out to be true or not, we’ll just have to wait and see what EA has planned. For now, however, Battlefield 6 is set to launch later in the year in 2021 and recently received support from developer Criterion, which was recruited by EA to help the shooter cross the finish line.
