A new leak associated with Battlefield 6 that has come about within the past few days has now seemingly been shot down. What was thought to be our first look at the logo for Battlefield 6 had made its way online just a week or so ago, but those who carefully inspected the image have pointed out a major flaw with it.
If you’re not too sure in to what happened because it’s been christmas and no one knows what day or time it is throughout, supposedly, the first logo for Battlefield 6 went live on the French iteration of the game’s website within the past week. The logo itself was in line with what past iterations have looked like, which woudn’t shock anyone. It also claimed that the game would be released in “Holiday 2021”, which hasn’t been confirmed just yet.

As one Redditor pointed out, though, there is one major issue with this “leak” — it didn’t include the trademark logo for Battlefield in the logo, as every instance of it that is utilized from Electrconic Arts always has that tiny little ‘TM’ appearing in the top right corner. In the case of this supposed leaked logo, the trademark was nowhere to be seen, essentially proving that it’s a fake.
Others have also pointed out that the French that was used in the doctored logo image was not in line with what you’d typically see from someone who is fluent in the language. So, it would be expected that whoever made the image perhaps used translation software, which would be extremely odd if it wasn’t faked.
While this latest Battlefield 6 rumor has proven to be a fake, fortunately, 2021 should be the year in which we start to hear more about the project. EA has dropped some hints about the game in the past, and even went on to show some in-engine footage of it as well, but nothing specific about the title has been revealed publicly just yet.
