EA is working on a new “narrative campaign” for Battlefield


EA has created a new Battlefield studio that will work on a narrative campaign for the franchise. The studio, Ridgeline Games, is based in Kirkland, Washington, and is led by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto, according to a press release.

The company hasn’t shared details on what this new experience might be, when it might be released, or on what platforms it will be available. But the promise of a dedicated narrative campaign could be good news for Battlefield fans who were disappointed that the live service Battlefield 2042, which had a poorly received launch in November, had no campaign mode of its own. And as EA continues to push further into live service games, such as the new skateit’s good to see that the company is still investing in more story-driven experiences.

EA first announced it would be building a Lehto-led team when it put Respawn boss Vince Zampella in charge of Battlefield weeks later 2042 launch. Despite 2042 rocky start, EA still seems pretty dedicated to the Battlefield franchise as a whole; CEO Andrew Wilson said in February that the company was “fully committed” to achieving 2042 potential, and the company is working on a Battlefield mobile title which should be released this year.

Along with the reveal from Ridgeline Games, 2042 Developer Dice also announced that creative director Lars Gustavsson, who has worked on the franchise for over 20 years, will be leaving the studio. It will move on to “something new,” he said in a statement to GameSpot.
