DICE to reveal the Next Battlefield soon
Oskar Gabrielson, a General Manager at DICE has today revealed that the Battlefield franchise is expanding into new platforms.
Battlefield 6/next is a return of all-out warfare
No details were revealed as to the nature of the next installment of Battlefield games. DICE Manger did confirm though that the next game has the biggest development team so far: Criterion, DICE LA and EA Gothenburg. This game will launch for consoles and PCs in 2021. According to the message shared on the EA website, Battlefield (6?) is to be released by the end of this year during the holiday season. Oskar Gabrielson promised we will be seeing ‘a lot’ in the coming months.
This installment in the franchise is said to offer an ‘epic scale, all out-military warfare’. Gamers should expect massive battles and game-changing destruction, the message says.
Battlefield mobile coming in 2022
DICE also announced that a mobile version of Battlefield is currently in development by Industrial Toys. They have been collaborating closely with DICE after ‘years of prototyping’ to deliver a fully standalone game.
The Battlefield Mobile will be released to mobile phones and tablets. The developer announced that gamers should expect a full-fledged and skill-based experience. A “Battlefield-on-the-go” is to be released in 2022.

Hey Battlefield community!
I know everyone is wanting more detail about what’s to come for Battlefield this year, and I promise we have A LOT to show you in the coming months. We’re putting some things together for when we reveal the next generation of Battlefield, and we can’t wait to show that to you all…but for now, we have a couple of things we wanted to tell you about.
First, we’re really excited to have the biggest Battlefield development team ever working on our console and PC game for this Holiday season, and second…we have something very exciting to talk about on mobile!
The Return of All-Out Warfare
2021 is an exciting time for us here at DICE. Working with more world-class development studios within Electronic Arts, we have our biggest team ever on a Battlefield game for console and PC. Our friends at Criterion and DICE LA are working with us on our shared vision for the game, while the team in Gothenburg is taking technology in the game to the next level. Together, we are creating a jaw-dropping experience for you to enjoy later in 2021.
We’re in daily playtesting mode right now: polishing, balancing, and making the best possible Battlefield game we can. I can tell you it is a bold step. It has everything we love about Battlefield – and takes all of it to the next level. Epic scale. All-out military warfare. Crazy, unexpected moments. Game-changing destruction. Massive battles, packed with more players and mayhem than ever before. All brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs.
Get ready for our reveal “soon™” ?
A new Battlefield Mobile Game Coming in 2022
It’s always been our vision to bring Battlefield to more platforms. So, after years of prototyping, I’m super happy to be able to let you know that our friends at Industrial Toys, working closely with all of us here at DICE, are developing a completely new Battlefield game bringing all-out warfare to smartphones and tablets in 2022.
Make no mistake, this is a standalone game. A completely different game from the one we’re making for console and PC, designed specifically for the mobile platform. It’s being built from the ground up by iToys to make Battlefield-on-the-go a reality and you can expect a fully-fledged, skill-based experience. This mobile game is now entering a testing period ahead of launching next year, so expect more details to come.
I can’t wait to show you the two Battlefield games we have coming! In the meantime, stay safe, and play some Battlefield!
– Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager DICE
