Battlefield 3 – inspiring a new generation (pic: EA)
The most prolific leaker of Battlefield 6 info has been suspended from Twitter, thereby making his rumours seem even more believable.
The Streisand effect was coined to describe the act of someone try to keep information secret by having it banned or removed, thereby unintentionally drawing even more people’s attention to it.
That’s exactly what’s happened in this case, where Tom Henderson has been suspended from Twitter because of his Battlefield 6 leaks, not only highlighting the information for anyone that hadn’t see it before but proving it must be true – or else no one would’ve made the effort to get him suspended.
Henderson has also removed all DICE related content from his YouTube channel, although this was apparently a pre-emptive move on his part, to avoid them being deleted for him.
Writing from a newly created Twitter account, Henderson was careful not to point the finger at EA but indicated that he knew exactly why he was suspended.
‘I standby everything I’ve stated previously, but I just needed to remove the source of the content’, he added.
Assuming EA is behind the suspension it seems especially pointless because Henderson has not been the only one leaking information about the game, with both him and VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb agreeing that the focus of the new game is new 128-player matches.
Both also agree that the new game will be set in the modern day, with Henderson having revealed a long time ago that the new title, possibly called simply ‘Battlefield’, is primarily inspired by 2011’s Battlefield 3.

Henderson’s most recent leaks have concerned the game’s destruction effects, which he describes as ‘levolution but on steroids’.
The strangest thing about the suspension is that, apart from perhaps the 128-players, all of the information could easily be guessed at by any reasonably clued-in fan, and none of it is really a surprise.
The problem, from EA’s perspective, is likely not so much the information itself but where exactly Henderson is getting it from. The publisher is no doubt keen to plug any leaks at developer DICE, which would explain Henderson’s comment about removing the source of the leaks.
