A new Battlefield 6 tease has players on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and PC shared. While EA has confirmed that a new Battlefield the game is coming soon and that it will be revealed sooner rather than later, this is all it has said, at least of consequence. In the midst of this silence, there is now a new teaser from a prominent Battlefield insider, who seems to tease that a battle-royal mode of the game is under development.
Yesterday, EA delayed the new Need for Speed to 2022 to take the criterion and move it to the development of Battlefield 6, which is taken on by DICE. And as you may remember, Criterion was made behind Fire storm, Battlefield 5̵
Pointing this out, prominent Battlefield inside Tom Henderson apparently bothers that Criterion is being brought forward for the development of a match royale mode for the game. Henderson does not directly claim this, but as you can see via the tweet below, that is what he strongly suggests.

With the Battle Royale genre showing that it is far more than a trend or fad, the idea that Battlefield 6 want a match royale mode – which Henderson has suggested can be free-to-play and stand-alone – makes sense.
That said, while it makes sense on paper, it is a rumor that has divided players. Of course, some are excited about the opportunity, while others will not see a match royale mode, especially not after Fire storm, which was thoroughly half-cooked.
At the moment of publication, EA, DICE and Criterion have not commented on speculation about a match royale mode. If this changes, we will be sure to update the history. In the meantime, you can take all this unofficial information with a grain of salt.
Battlefield 6 is scheduled for release sometime later this year. As a release date, platforms have not been announced, but it is believed that the game is under development for PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S.
