EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson explained why the game will be focusing on next-gen consoles by saying “The reference specifically from our prepared remarks was around the nature of gameplay – what we can do with the fidelity of the game, what we can do with the physics, artificial intelligence, and the immersive nature of the game. And in the case of Battlefield, what we can do with respect to the number of players that we can have in the game, and the nature of destruction and those all-new Battlefield moments that are truly next-gen opportunities that we are able to do in the context of our next-gen franchises because of the increased processing power and memory and output of the new consoles.”

He can totally understand the feeling of last-gen console owner who can’t upgrade especially during this worldwide pandemic. Although the graphics will be toned down but PS4 and Xbox One players can totally play the game. He stated, “I had the great fortune of growing up in this company and building games on multiple generations, and I think when you think about our infrastructure around our Frostbite team, our digital services teams, and our game teams, you have unbelievable experience getting the very best out of the past generation consoles to ensure that even as we move to the next generation, we’re getting more and more out of the old generation platforms, and so those games are going to look great.”
While some fans might be disappointed to know that Battlefield 6 won’t be a next-gen-only esports title, EA still plans to launch Battlefield 6 for PS4 and Xbox One alongside PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
