Battlefield 6 should launch later this year, during the holiday season. This has been a traditional release window for the franchise and EA already confirmed in one of their investor calls that the game should be ready for launch in 2021. 


We will get more information about the Alpha and Beta tests once the game is officially revealed but until then we know that the Alpha test for Battlefield 6 will be the franchise's earliest Alpha ever. This means you can expect Alpha in late May or early June 2021. As for the beta test, Battlefield V beta kicked off in September, so you can expect a similar beta window for the upcoming game.
