...I would want to reduce the risk of default on this promise by collectively agreeing with the other 5 to receive this “bonus” partly this year then next year then 01.05.2022. This only works if you negotiate together, otherwise as pointed out previously you have no negotiation power and number #6 will be more than happy to take your spot.
It's not clear from OP's post if all 5 remaining employees are being offered the bonus. He seems to have legacy knowledge the others might not have. If the employees already discussed amongst themselves that's one thing but if OP pipes up to complain about getting an extra half year salary as bonus and they haven't heard of such a thing it could be awkward.
