Battlefield 5 is getting its last bit of content which means that a new game is around the corner. EA CEO Andrew Wilson was asked about the development of Battlefield 6 and he mentioned that it is going very very well.
With developers working from home, things can get very challenging indeed but it seems that development of Battlefield 6 is on track. The following is what the CEO of EA had to say regarding the development of Battlefield 6:
First, I would say, Battlefield is progressing very, very well. We’re excited by what the team’s doing. And again, in the context of the work-at-home environment that had been truly inspirational and how that continued to develop great entertainment in the context of our Battlefield universe. So, I’m excited for when next year comes.
EA CEO Andrew Wilson also talked about games that would release on a multi-year basis. He talked about sports games, Battlefield and other franchises such as Dragon Age and Sims. The following is what he had to say regarding the matter:
as we think about our broader portfolio, you’ll continue to see us launch games on an annualized basis. Our sports games would be a good example there. You will continue to see us launch games on a multiyear basis, things like Battlefield or some of our titles out of Dragon Age would be a good example of that. You’ll continue to see us think about games on a five and six-year time horizon. The Sims which launched the game over five years ago and continues to grow every year through extra content live services would be an example of that.
It seems that some of the games can be upgraded to the Xbox Series X and the PS5 for free. Which is something that is true for Xbox Game Studio titles and Cyberpunk 2077.
So there you have it folks. Battlefield 6 development is going as planned and you can expect it to release on Xbox Series X and PS5 alongside the current generation of consoles.
