The rumours once again come from industry insider Tom Henderson, who is one of the most prominent leakers when it comes to Battlefield and Call of Duty news.
In a tweet, Henderson stated that he’s not heard anything concrete to say that Battlefield 6 will be coming to PS4 and Xbox One.
“In other news, I still have yet to hear anything concrete that #BATTLEFIELD will come to past gen consoles,” said Henderson in a tweet.
The tweet continued with a theory that the lack of a last-gen release it could mean that Battlefield 6 might come to Xbox Game Pass on day one.
“Theory – It indicates to me that it probably won’t and the biggest reason #BATTLEFIELD will come to the Xbox Game Pass on day 1 to boost up player numbers,” he said.
If Battlefield 6 doesn’t come to PS4 and Xbox One, it could mean that the standard of the game will be increased seeing as the developers at DICE won’t have to water the game down for last-gen systems.
I can also see where Henderson is coming from in terms of Battlefield 6 coming to Xbox Game Pass. With the potential of Battlefield 6 not coming to last-gen consoles, it’s a great way to boost those players’ numbers with an Xbox Game Pass launch.
So IF Battlefield 6 does come to Xbox Game Pass, could this mean that EA may have signed other exclusive deals with Microsoft? Perhaps Battlefield 6 might release on Xbox a little early, or perhaps there might be exclusive content or timed-exclusive DLC?
At this time this is nothing more than mere speculation, so we must take it all with a pinch of salt.
However with Electronic Arts’ EA Play Live event expected to kick off this June, hopefully, we won’t have long to wait until all these Battlefield 6 rumours are put to rest.
