Although it is abundantly evident that Battlefield 2042 has not turned out the way EA had thought it would, the corporation undoubtedly maintains high hopes that the franchise will stage a successful comeback in the years to come. There have been repeated rumors that Electronic Arts, which has only recently begun using a multi-studio production strategy for the series, is already working on the next mainline game in the series. This comes after EA changed to using this model. One of the studios that are now active in the series is a new team that was established in Seattle last year. Former Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto is the leader of the project single-player, and it appears that the team is working on a campaign for the upcoming Battlefield game.
That’s right: despite the fact that Battlefield 2042 ultimately did not include a single-player campaign at all, it appears that the next game in the series will not follow suit and omit the mode entirely. It is interesting to note that EA’s most recent job ad for the position of Design Director at the Seattle Battlefield studio makes repeated references to the fact that work is currently being done on a single-player campaign. This listing was released not too long ago.
According to the description, your responsibilities will include “managing the design team and design direction of a new Battlefield campaign.” “It is your responsibility to coordinate the mission design, narrative, game mechanics, and systems in order to produce an experience of the highest quality possible.” In order to build an inclusive design team, you must first cultivate relationships with the creative, engineering, and production departments.
“It is your responsibility to embrace the key ideas of the Battlefield brand and make sure that they are threaded through all layers of a single-player campaign that has been beautifully conceived. You will be responsible for building the design team and culture of the firm, as well as creating an incredible campaign from concept to release. You are also accountable for leading iterations of the product design based on the feedback received from colleagues, company partners, and members of the team, all while maintaining the overarching vision.
According to earlier rumors, the release of the next Battlefield game is scheduled to take place in the year 2024. On the multiplayer side of things, the game is rumored to roll back a significant portion of the improvements that were made in Battlefield 2042, and it could also contain hero shooter components.
