Although there were rumours last month that EA'S next entry in the Battlefield series would not support older platforms like the Xbox One, it seems this is not the case.
During the company's full-year earnings call on Tuesday, EA's CEO Andrew Wilson clarified the game will be coming to "current-gen and next-gen" platforms including Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Playstation 5 and PC.
“Battlefield will be available for both current-gen and next-gen as will our sports titles"
Wilson also addressed concerns about how "past generation" titles compare to next-generation and noted how EA's teams are capable of getting the very best out of older generation systems.
“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.
In a post on social media, EA has also revealed this new Battlefield game will be revealed this June. Geoff Keighley reconfirmed this:
