With the development of EA Dice's next Battlefield title (now confirmed to be Battlefield 2042) well underway, rumors about the upcoming war shooter have been flying thick and fast of late.
The latest rumor, once again tweeted (opens in new tab) by noted Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson and picked up by TweakTown (opens in new tab), claims that the next game in the series will feature robotic attack dogs as part of your arsenal.
- Battlefield 6 release date, trailer, news and rumors
- Battlefield 6 could have its own free-to-play mode, hints recent survey
- Battlefield 6 on PS5 and Xbox Series X will include 'more players than ever'
This is just the beginning. In #BATTLEFIELD the dog is more like Boston Dynamics Mule that can run really fast and potentially has a weapon on it. But it looks like it could be a new vehicle type instead of a gadget. https://t.co/kx1903T8odApril 10, 2021
Henderson tweeted that your robot attack dog will be "more like Boston Dynamics Mule that can run really fast and potentially has a weapon on it," and that "it looks like it could be a new vehicle type instead of a gadget."
The leaker recently made headlines with claims that Battlefield 6 is cross-gen and will feature 128-player maps, will be set in the near-future (opens in new tab) and that it will be coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one (opens in new tab).
Like with any rumor, we advise you to definitely take these leaks with a pinch of salt. That said, if any of this information does prove to be accurate, we could be looking at the most exciting instalment of Battlefield in years.
At present, it's believed that Battlefield 6 will be officially revealed in May and is on track for a release in late 2021.
