Taking to Twitter, Henderson shared a brand new report about the game, relaying word that he hasn't heard anything concrete about the game coming to last-gen consoles, which is to say PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, and Xbox One X. And as Henderson notes, this indicates that it's probably because it will be exclusive to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
Adding to this, Henderson brings up the reports that Battlefield 6 will be offered through Xbox Game Pass the day it releases, noting this is probably to boost the player count because it won't be on last-gen consoles.
In other news, I still have yet to hear anything concrete that #BATTLEFIELD will come to past gen consoles. Theory - It indicates to me that it probably won't and the biggest reason #BATTLEFIELD will come to the Xbox Game Pass on day 1 is to boost up player numbers.— Tom Henderson (@_Tom_Henderson_) April 15, 2021

As you would expect, this report has been met with skepticism, with many noting it's very much unlike EA to leave money on the table, which it would be doing if it doesn't put the game on last-gen consoles. In fact, it will leave a ton of money on the table. Players are also simply divided about the report and whether or not it's good news or bad news.
