D3 Publisher originally announced Earth Defense Force 6 in June of last year, and we now have a confirmation of its platforms being PS5 and PS4. The information appears to come from the latest issue of Famitsu magazine.
The confirmation is more specifically from a Ryokutya2089 leak of the Famitsu issue and no further information accompanied the post. However, that means we’ll likely get a new trailer for the announcement plus more in the near future. TGS 2021 Online is just around the corner as well, so there’s a good chance that we’ll get more there.
To catch you up to speed if you haven’t read up on EDF6, it is the sixth main entry from the Earth Defense Force series. It is a direct sequel to Earth Defense Force 5 that takes place 3 years after where the previous game ended. The setting is a dying Earth that gets invaded by the Primer alien civilization. As far as playable units go, we’ve only seen the classic Ranger class but we can expect to see plenty more later. Many enemies including the Ants, Spiders, Horners, and Colonists will make a return.
Earth Defense Force 6 will release in Japan for the PS5 and PS4 in 2021.
