Reliable leaker Tom Henderson has claimed that DICE’s upcoming Battlefield 6 may only come to PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S, with PS4 and Xbox One being left out in the cold.
Speaking on Twitter, Henderson has revealed that he has “yet to hear anything concrete that Battlefield  will come to past gen consoles.” This isn’t outright confirmation that they won’t appear on Sony and Microsoft’s previous generation of hardware, but it’s definitely a possibility.
In other news, I still have yet to hear anything concrete that #BATTLEFIELD will come to past gen consoles. Theory – It indicates to me that it probably won't and the biggest reason #BATTLEFIELD will come to the Xbox Game Pass on day 1 is to boost up player numbers.

Battlefield 6 is currently in development for PC and consoles and will launch later this year. A full reveal is expected to take place in May, and it’s been rumored the shooter is set to include a branching story and full co-op.
EA revealed earlier this year that DICE LA has been working on Battlefield 6 for over a year, where it is focusing on live-service elements for the project.
Battlefield 6 is scheduled for release in Fall 2021.
