In May, Electronic Arts mocked (without much subtlety) that the official revelation of Battlefield 6 (or what will eventually be called) takes place someday in June. Today is the 9th of June.

There is not much more to see at this time, except that the revelation will begin at 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. (10:00 a.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. CEST) and technically still falls within the spring limits, which EA promised would happen again in February. (Summer begins on June 21.)
Still, we have a reasonable (albeit very broad) idea of what is to come: A a couple of images leaked in early May point to a modern or near-future setup for the game, which coincides with a March leaker claim Tom Henderson, who said that he will be established for about ten years from now and that he will apparently turn the player into a kind of specialized mercenary who can choose to fight for the United States or Russia. This will be a big break with previous Battlefield games, which were set in World War I and World War II, and according to Henderson, the mandatory Battle Royale mode will make a similar leap to Firestorm.
The revelation takes place on June 9, one day before the start of Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest and three days before E3, which will include, among other things, the return of the PC Gaming Show. It is also 43 days before the EA Play online event, which is scheduled for July 22. To keep up to date with what's going on (because it's a lot), keep an eye out for our full E3 2021 schedule.
