Battlefield 6 is soft reboot for 128 players
The latest rumours out of DICE says the next Battlefield will be a soft reboot targeting 128 player maps for maximum carnage.
Battlefield 6 is well into development, and will return to a modern setting like the third and fourth Battlefield games. 2016's Battlefield 1 was based on WW1, while Battlefield V was set during WW2.
Last-gen lives on: Battlefield 6 will apparently also appear on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well as PC and the next-gen consoles.
Divide and conquer: A second team is working on the current-gen version, which is unlikely to support 128 players. Battlefield 6 is apparently scheduled for release in late 2021.
