Battlefield will return this year 2021 with a brand new sixth installment. Despite not being announced yet, EA plans to release Battlefield 6 this year, to compete directly with the new Call of Duty and the free to play Warzone, presumably on Xbox Series X | S, PS5 and PC.
To date we have commented on numerous rumors about Battlefield 6, such as the possibility of it being presented in May, the inclusion of modes Battle royale for multiplayer or some details about its campaign mode, such as a cooperative mode.
However, in the last hours a bomb circulates on the sixth installment of Battlefield. According to insider Shpeshal, who yesterday commented on the possibility of several Microsoft digital events taking place in the coming weeks, Battlefield 6 will be a launch game on Xbox Game Pass.
Could Battlefield 2021 could be a Game Pass Day 1 title?

On the podcast XboxEra, and together with the well-known Battlefield insider Tom Henderson, this user claims that Microsoft is in negotiations with EA so that Battlefield VI Joins Xbox Game Pass since its launch day, as has already happened with the Outriders looter shooter.
A priori it seems like a somewhat remote possibility, but it makes a lot of sense. It is a fact that Game Pass has helped many online multiplayer titles become hits (like Fallout 76 or Sea of Thieves), and it would be a great move for Battlefield to regain lost ground to its ultimate rival, Call of Duty.

The information given by Shpeshal was endorsed by Tom Henderson, who is the one who has revealed most of the rumors about Battlefield 6. EA’s income reports mention a new installment of the saga for this year 2021, so it is almost a fact that this return of the war franchise will be announced soon.
Do you think Battlefield VI could exit launch on Xbox Game Pass? The relationships between EA and Xbox They are more than good, and in the past there have already been some collaborations between the war saga and Microsoft, such as bundles of Xbox consoles or discounts of the saga in its digital store.
