A substantial change in the franchise.
Battlefield was, at one time, one of the most important franchises in the industry, especially if we are talking only about multiplayer video games. Some of you may not have lived through that time, or simply at that time you did not play many titles of this style, but there were several years, in which there was a dispute to know which was better: Call of Duty or Battlefield. Unfortunately, over the years the popularity of EA’s franchise has fizzled out, leading to releases that did not have a very good receptionas is the case with the last one released, which you can learn more about in our Battlefield 2042 analysis.
By this point, many players in the franchise have moved away from it, disappointed by the constant comings and goings of Electronic Arts and the studios in charge of this saga. Even so, there are still those people who, although they have gotten off the boat, are expectant about the next movements of the saga.
If you are one of those people, you are in luck, because rumors have begun to emerge about a single player Battlefield game, something that is far from the standards of the saga, but that It can serve to give some fresh air to this.
This could reinvigorate the saga
Specifically, this has been revealed by GamesIndustry.biz, one of the most recognized media, and therefore reliable in this class of cases.
Basically, they have revealed that Electronic Arts has assigned this job to Ridgeline Games, a new studio, in which a team is being created for this mentioned project. We have also learned that the director of this single player Battlefield will be Marcus Lehto, known for being the co-creator of the Halo franchise, which is known especially for its campaign mode.
Of course, and taking these details into account, the game seems to be in its early stages of development, so we can’t expect to see it anytime soon. Even so, and if we assume that all this information is real, we are talking about quite a significant turn of the sagasince they will go from not including a campaign in their previous installment, to making a title only focused on the single player mode.
