Call of Duty Warzone has seen tremendous success, a reality that could have partly inspired the development of Battlefield 6, as according to the latest information The new installment of EA’s well-known war action franchise could feature a massively multiplayer mode with the ability to up to 128 people. 32-player vs. 32-player matchups would be “standard.”
EA itself has confirmed, in its own way, that they want create “epic battles”, and the truth is that an online combat with 128 players face-to-face fits that description quite well, although we must bear in mind that there is still no official announcement, so for now we can only wait.
It is also important to bear in mind that this massively multiplayer mode does not have to be directly integrated into Battlefield 6, that is, it is possible that EA and DICE choose to release it as free standalone content. It makes sense, since it is the same strategy that Activision has followed with Call of Duty Warzone, and so far it has been doing very well.
Battlefield 6 is coming in 2021, and will be exclusive to the next generation
The latest leaks and rumors point in that direction. Battlefield 6 would be being developed as a game focused on the new generation of consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X, and it won’t arrive until sometime in 2021. The truth is that everything fits quite well, since this would allow EA and DICE to carry out a quiet development, take advantage of the power of the next generation consoles and finish monetizing Battlefield V.
We do not have details on what graphic improvements DICE could introduce in this title as a result of the greater power of the new generation consoles, but it is worth considering an increase in resolution (4K rescaled, probably), high-quality textures, larger, more detailed and complex scenarios and (maybe) ray tracing.
If you are concerned about the possible requirements of that Battlefield 6 as a result of the jump to the new generation of consoles, I think you can rest assured, any PC configured with a processor of six cores and twelve threads accompanied by 16 GB of RAM and a GTX 1660 Ti or a Radeon RX Vega 56 You should be able to move it without problems, although in 1080p, yes.
