Battlefield 6 can be launched on Xbox Game Pass on day one according to a new rumor.
The claim comes from the Xbox-centric podcast, Xbox Era, just below, where a commentator reveals that Battlefield 6 may come to the Xbox Game Pass at launch.
Could Battlefield 2021 be a Game Pass Day 1 title? Here’s what @Shpeshal_Ed from the XboxEra podcast had to say. Https://t.co/l4RYoEmIOq #Battlefield #Xbox pic.twitter.com/EZxBRqHlDHA April 5, 2021
Shortly after, big-time battlefield licker Tom Henderson threw the weight behind the comment from the podcast host, in a tweet that simply used Robert Redford nodding gif. That could be read as a sign that Henderson believes the rumor is true, or it can also be seen as the leak that is only excited about the idea of Battlefield 6 to be launched on Game Pass.
Of course, nothing has been confirmed by either EA or Xbox as of now, and Battlefield 6 has not even been properly announced by the former company. Last year, EA quietly revealed that Battlefield 6 would launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X at some point during the following year in 2021
Since then, there has been a squad of leaks and rumors surrounding the game. One leaker claimed that Battlefield 6 could support up to 128 players on massive multiplayer maps, and another rumor claimed that the game would revert to a modern setting, deviating from the 20th century settings of Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 5. Earlier this year though, Another leak claimed that the unannounced game would take place about a decade from now, and would include robots, drones and other somewhat futuristic methods of warfare.
Whether this latest rumor turns out to be true or not, we just have to wait and see what EA has planned. For now though, Battlefield 6 is set to launch later this year in 2021, and recently received support from developer Criterion, which was recruited by EA to help the shooter cross the finish line.
