Battlefield 6 release date: PS4, PS5, Xbox, PC, Switch

Battlefield fans are always one step ahead, which is why many have their sights set battlefield 6. The next entry in the series has some big shoes to fill, assuming it actually takes on a proper numbered title. But is there a Battlefield 6 release date to mark on the calendar? And is there any word on the PlayStation, Xbox or Switch versions?

Battlefield 6 Release Date – PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC

As far as we know, DICE devs are not working on Battlefield 6. At the very least, they haven’t mentioned it. As such, the game doesn’t have a release date – we’ll have to hear confirmation that it even exists first.

That said, DICE will almost certainly release Battlefield 6 at some point in the future. The series has been going for two decades, and there’s no reason to think that’s about to change.

However, it’s unclear when the sixth numbered installment will arrive. This is because DICE used a very confusing numbering system throughout the series. For example, Battlefield 1 was released in 2016, three years after Battlefield 4. And the latest version of the series, Battlefield 2042, was released 16 years after Battlefield 2142.

In other words, the next Battlefield game may not be called BF6 at all. It might be a new Hardline, or even a new Bad Company. Without knowing that the game will be numbered, we don’t know when the next game will be released, let alone what it will be called.

Will Battlefield 6 be on PS4 or Nintendo Switch?

However it comes out, Battlefield 6 probably won’t be released on PS4 or Nintendo Switch. None of the games in the series have been released for the Switch so far, and there’s no reason to think that will change in the future.

However, this answer ignores a more obvious part of the question. We don’t know when Battlefield 6 will be released, so there’s no way of knowing what consoles it will launch for. Of course, the very next entry in the series will likely have cross-gen functionality with the PS4 and Xbox One. But after that, the series will probably only move on to the current generation.

Then again, by the time DICE chooses to name a game Battlefield 6, we may be playing on different hardware entirely. As of now, there’s no word on development, so there’s no release date or known platforms. Fans will have to hang on to BF2042 in the meantime.
