A leaked snippet of an alleged Battlefield 6 trailer is reportedly internal footage and will not be used as the game's official trailer. 

The clip (via MP1ST) was uploaded to Reddit by user PhantomXMT and shows a small 11-second clip of internal Battlefield 6 footage. You can watch the original clip here but be warned, it does feature a lot of flashing. It's also only 11-seconds in length and has a large graphic overlaying most of the clip. Another user reconstructed the clip to remove the flashing but is a touch on the choppy side.

With only 11-seconds of footage, there's not much to go off, but it's quite clear that it's a cinematic clip that features large rockets, incredibly detailed smoke, and a devastating explosion. 

However, this video might never have been planned to be seen outside of EA. GamesRadar understands that EA has been preparing for this footage to leak ahead of time and a report from Eurogamer earlier corroborates this. 

We have contacted EA for official comment, but haven't heard back from them at the time of publication. We will update this story accordingly when we do.

As for official reports, EA says that Battlefield 6 is planned for a Q3 2021 launch and will take "full advantage of the power of next-generation platforms to bring massive and immersive battles to life with more players than ever." A reveal event will also happen in June, which should at least give us our first proper look at what to expect from the next Battlefield game.

I'm partial to an action adventure RPG such as Skyrim and Cyberpunk 2077. I enjoy the occasional open-world driving games and even those skateboarding titles. But really, if any game I'm playing has a photo mode, I'll likely be found snapping pictures of anything and everything.
