The Reddit post by HeroTK gathers information from Tom Henderson’s Discord server along with online forums. It claims that the next Battlefield game is called Battlefield 2042. Battlefield 2042 is rumoured to be set 20 years after Battlefield 4 in a near-future setting, which lines up with some of technology elements that are expected to be part of the game. Battlefield 6 is also expected to get open alpha or beta later this month.

Rumours also suggest that Battlefield 2042 will have the biggest maps in the history of the franchise. This is in line with previous leaks that showed a massive map. A map called Shelf is expected to be a part of the game and it could take place in Antarctica. Battlefield 6 could also come with a map that features an island. Since none of these details are officially confirmed yet, they should be taken with a grain of salt.
EA previously revealed that four studios are collaborating on Battlefield 6 including EA DICE, DICE LA, Criterion, and EA Gothenburg. The game will launch on new as well as past-gen consoles and PC. Battlefield 6 is expected to launch in Q3 2021, which could be sometime between October and December. EA could reveal more details about Battlefield 6 in the next EA Play event that may take place later this year.
