Battlefield 2042 has not had the results that EA and DICE had hoped for, currently they have been focusing on keeping the game alive with a series of updates. So far the game is not progressing.
However, GamesIndustry.biz reported that EA and DICE are currently putting together an entirely new team to help Ridgeline Games (led by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto) create a single-player Battlefield campaign. At the same time, another EA studio, Ripple Effect, is apparently working on a “completely different” experience.
“Our decision to build our single player team here at DICE is a proactive approach that arms our global teams with the resources they need early on as we look to the next Battlefield experience.said DICE Vice President and General Manager Rebecka Coutaz. . “We have immense strength and opportunity within our three global studios, with each team bringing their own set of deep franchise experiences. Now, we can expand the opportunities and benefit from new talent that will help Ridgeline write the next chapter of the franchise.”.
“Our vision, coupled with his experience with the franchise, will allow us to build a single player campaign that will engage players in new ways while staying true to the classic elements that make Battlefield truly unique.Lehto said.
