I am considering to buy an M1X macbook pro 16 when it's available, because I like macOS, I need a device for for prof. tasks, but I also would love to have an opportunity to game through parallels sometimes and I'm wondering if there will be support for Battlefield 5, battlefield 1 or Battlefield 6(when it gets released) in the future?

We are not clairvoyant, so how would we know? It depends on whether the game studios are interested in writing games for macOS as well, or if they simply aren't interested. macOS is not a gaming platform and never really has been, so my best guess would be consoles, Windows and that's it.

Highly doubt it, or performance will be very poor considering the M1X (Apple Silicon in general) will be using ARM-based CPU architecture, while these games were coded with x86 in mind. Also, I'm pretty sure Apple will be using Metal or a Metal-alternative so any API support will be non-existent.

Not likely if you plan to use Parallels, as that is still limited to the ARM version of Windows, which is very low on support for third party software.

EA hasn't announced plans for Mac ports, so I really wouldn't count on them. And like was mentioned earlier, Parallels currently has to use Windows on ARM... so you'd be playing a game through a virtual machine with emulation thrown in.

 

You can play some games on Macs, including things from Steam, the Epic Games Store and Apple's own App Store (Arcade might be a good deal for some titles). However, the general rule is that you never buy a Mac with gaming as a major consideration. Save the money you'd spend on gaming-level specs on a PS5 or Xbox Series X... you'll probably be happier. That's how I roll at the moment.
