A reliable video game info-leaker, known for his claims about Battlefield 6, has been suspended from Twitter.
Tom Henderson has made various claims about DICE’s upcoming FPS. Leaks such as the game featuring modern-day combat, fully destructible buildings and 128 multiplayer support came from the user.
It now seems that Henderson’s Twitter account has been suspended, leading the leaker to also voluntarily remove YouTube videos as a precautionary measure [via VGC].
Reddit has been tracking the situation and lists Henderson’s various predictions. Here’s a list of leaks revealed by Henderson so far:
- Battlefield 6 will return to modern warfare
- BF6 will be a ‘soft reboot of the series’
- BF6 will be heavily inspired by BF3 (one of the most successful battlefield titles)
- BF6 may simply be called “Battlefield”
- BF6 will feature up to 128 players on PC and Next-Gen consoles
- BF6 will feature “next-gen” destruction that will take the destruction to the next level
Henderson offered an update on the situation, providing the following explanation of events:
“I’m seeing a lot of conspiracy theories flying around about what happened with my Twitter and the answer is simple; My Twitter was suspended and I received a heads up as to why, so I’ve protected myself before/if things progressed. I’m still waiting on official word from Twitter.”
The above Reddit post also surmises that Henderson’s predictions are around 80 per cent accurate, with EA apparently validating most of the information during a conference call:
” […] BF6 will bring massive and immersive battles to life with more players than ever ” (128 players?)
“Featuring maps with unprecedented scale, the next vision of Battlefield takes all the destruction, player agency, and vehicle and weapon combat that the franchise is known for and elevates it to another level.
“(big maps, ofcourse, elevates destruction, seemingly confirming the destruction rumours)
“mark a return to all-out military warfare.” ( RETURNING to all-out warfare, seems to suggest leaving HISTORICAL themes behind and RETURNING to Modern )“
As you can see, Tom Henderson’s leaks align perfectly with what comes directly from DICE.
It looks like Henderson managed to rattle the hornet’s nest when it comes to EA’s secrets. The company has kept the project under wraps, so you can imagine that it would not take kindly to any leaks compromising the surprise.
As for Henderson’s suspension, the move could set somewhat of a precedent. The world of gaming leaks and insider information could be changed forever, especially if publicly known leakers are to have their accounts suspended as a result.
