Battlefield 6 has been shrouded in secrecy, and the only look-sees we've gotten are through leaks. Well, here's one we didn't want to hear - the anticipated first-person shooter might not feature a single-player campaign, according to Tom Henderson.
Henderson has been a steady source of information on Battlefield 6 for some time now. Clarifying what the publisher Electronic Arts meant by the "crazy ambitious ideas" that developer DICE has in store for fans, he said that the game would be inspired by Battlefield 3 (which is unequivocally a good thing). It would also see massive maps to accommodate the 128 players that would all pile into the multiplayer modes, as EA and DICE were interested in rivalling the success of Call Of Duty: Warzone.
Battlefield is far from shy when it comes to blockbuster, show-stopping moments. But its the players that create a lot of the game's amazing content:
Moreover, these maps would take advantage of the technical prowess of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X to create earth-shattering destruction and physics. That's literal earth-shattering, by the way, as Henderson claimed that natural disasters like volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and tornadoes will pose risks to players on either side of the conflict.
"Our next Battlefield experience will mark a return to all out military warfare," said Andrew Wilson, CEO of EA, earlier this year. "The game takes full advantage of the power of next generation platforms to bring massive immersive battles to life with more players than ever before." Henderson also relayed that the campaign is "revolutionary," but it now appears that he's had to walk back on that statement. "I had a look back at the past EA earnings calls, but this is the first earnings call where EA has not mentioned a campaign coming to this year's Battlefield," he said on Twitter.
Could it be that DICE has had to cut a campaign at launch, owing to the upheaval on the industry resulting from the pandemic? Well, EA proudly announced that the developer was "way ahead" of schedule for its work on Battlefield 6 in February. Therefore, this is unlikely. "As I've mentioned for the past couple of months, I'm yet to hear of a campaign," he continued. "It doesn't mean there isn't one, but it's very, very unusual to not hear of one in an info dump." But, Henderson has mentioned the campaign before in one of his leaks. Perhaps he has gotten his wires crossed, but our fingers are crossed that there is a single-player campaign so that both camps are satisfied with whatever they want from the next Battlefield.
