A new teas­er for EA and DICE’s next Bat­tle­field game has sur­faced online, ahead of its offi­cial­ly announce­ment on June 9th. The teas­er is mys­te­ri­ous to say the least. It appears that screen­shots of the game have also leaked online. 

EA is send­ing a teas­er image to influ­encers like Jack­Frags via Twit­ter DM. The mes­sage con­tains a scram­bled trans­mis­sion which may offer clues about the new Bat­tle­field. The mes­sage was appar­ent­ly inter­cept­ed, but there are some pieces miss­ing. How­ev­er, what it does say is the fol­low­ing: “Some of you want to return home. I must tell you the truth. Do we accept our fate? If you can fire a gun … we need you. War is the only way home.”

The teas­er says the trans­mis­sion was picked up at 3600 hours. Mil­i­tary time only goes up to 2400 hours, so it’s spec­u­lat­ed that the game is set in the future or pos­si­bly an alter­nate uni­verse. You can check out the image below for any clues you might be able to spot.

Bat­tle­field 6, or what­ev­er the game will be titled, will be offi­cial­ly unveiled on June 9th. There is a rumor that it could pos­si­bly be on Xbox Game Pass. While the game will be shown on the 9th, it’s unknown if it will be shown days lat­er at E3 2021. Elec­tron­ic Arts is not attend­ing the show this year, opt­ing to host its own EA Play Live event in July.

The biggest devel­op­ment team ever is cur­rent­ly work­ing on the Bat­tle­field 6, and EA man­age­ment said the game could have more live ser­vice ele­ments than before.
