There's also reports of an official survey doing the rounds.

The tweet by Roberto Serrano (aka @geronimo_73) points to a modern warfare setting, 16-128 multiplayer matches, customization for soldiers, weapons and vehicles and a "fall 2021" release date. The tweet also lists a battle royale component, which will reportedly roll out in early 2022 as a free-to-play title.
None of those are particularly surprising—most of those are just things you'd expect from a new Battlefield game. The free-to-play battle royale is vaguely surprising, and the modern warfare setting hasn't been confirmed. But aside from that it's business as usual, right?
The official response from Battlefield seems to agree, but it's entirely up to interpretation because, uh: spaghetti.
#Spaghetti - noodley- slippy- good with sauce- good with garlic bread- is spaghetti- can be used as decoration- always available*also available as pasta https://t.co/bOVsdO1Unw pic.twitter.com/hUfZRsrYnZMarch 26, 2021See more
Another rumor doing the rounds on reddit, which hasn't attracted any official response, points to Battlefield 6 featuring a hub-like launcher hosting "most, if not all" old Battlefield games—kinda like Hitman 3 is now host to the whole trilogy. But you should take that with a big dollop of salt.
Elsewhere, EA has reportedly issued a survey to some players (via PCGamesN) quizzing on a range of features including a battle pass. Whatever the case, it probably won't be long before we hear about all this in an official capacity. In the meantime, spaghetti.
