EA has announced that a new Battlefield game will be released this year and that the game will be "brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs".
To create this next-generation Battlefield title, DICE has created its "biggest team ever" to bring the game to life, working with Criterion, DICE LA, and EA Gothenberg on the project.
With their 2021 Battlefield game, EA will be taking the Battlefield franchise to the "next level", promising an "Epic scale" and "All-out military warfare". Using the power of next-generation consoles, EA has also promised "game-changing destruction", "massive battles", and "more players and mayhem than ever before".
Based on EA's announcement, 2021's Battlefield game will not be releasing on last-generation consoles, which means that the game will not be coming to PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. In 2022, EA has confirmed that a Mobile Battlefield game is in the works, which will be a separate experience for smartphones and tablets.
Regarding 2021's Battlefield title, EA has confirmed that the game's official reveal will be "soon", confirming that the game will be released "this holiday season".
