Thanks to the wonderful battle royale game mode ‘Warzone’, Call of Duty has seen an unprecedented revival in the last few years. This means that close rival series Battlefield has a small mountain to climb to compete with them this time around. However, it looks like they are going to give it one hell of a try as Battlefield 6 looks like it’s going to be one of the most authentic shooters we have ever seen. That is, if the recent leaks are to be believed and considering that EA has got this user banned from Twitter, we think you should.
Tom Henderson is a man known online for his ability to find out top secret information about games ahead of release. Then, of course, promptly spread them around the globe as best as he can. On this occasion, Tom has seen his content regarding Battlefield taken down from Youtube, he has been banned from Twitter and as a result, it has only confirmed that his rumors are true. Not quite the desired effect EA will have wanted.
The Streisand Effect
So you may be wondering, what bold claims did Tom make that EA couldn’t allow the public to see. Well, with the help of journalist Jeff Grubb, Tom reported on the alleged 128 player matches soon to come to the series. He also reported that the game would be heavily inspired by Battlefield 3 and would likely be called ‘Battlefield’ upon release instead of a numbered sequel. Then thirdly, Tom reported on the new demolition aspects of the game that he described as ‘levolution but on steroids.’
The strange thing about this decision to hide this info for EA is that none of this info is all that shocking. Most fans who are keen on the series would have worked this out anyway. Plus, none of this info would have a negative effect on anyone’s opinion of the game. In fact, for many these aspects were welcome news.
Many believe that this is a pre-emptive measure to ensure that any channels that the leaker has established with the developer are promptly closed. So it begs the question, is there info that EA doesn’t want us to know about. Is there something nefarious going on? That wouldn’t be like EA, right? We suppose that time will tell. More on this story as it develops.
So that’s our news regarding the Battlefield 6 leaks. What do you make of the news? Do you think that the bans for Tom Henderson were necessary? Do you think Battlefield will be able to compete with Call of Duty this time around? Let us know in the comments section below and as always, thank you for reading.
