Battlefield will apparently reintroduce a single-player campaign in future games


EA’s Battlefield series will apparently return to including single-player campaigns, according to a new job posting at the Seattle-based publisher’s studio.

While we already knew that Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto was leading a Battlefield universe project at the Seattle studio, the job posting for a design director specifically mentions creating a “new Battlefield campaign “.

As noted by VGC, the Design Director will be tasked with “creating a premier single-player campaign experience” with a “player-first mentality, driven by a passionate goal of understanding and serving players who are engaged in the game. “. The ideal candidate should have a “passion and understanding of single player campaigns and how to innovate in this space”.

Battlefield 2042 – the last game in the series which had a fairly turbulent post-release period – featured no campaign whatsoever, while other recent entries such as Battlefield V opted for shorter single-player games or mixed-player multiplayer campaigns.

The jobs listing therefore suggests that EA will backtrack on this somewhat, although it’s still unclear exactly what this new project will entail. According to the job listing, the Seattle studio, which was only founded in late 2021, “is focused on creating rich, exciting stories with memorable characters and powerful experiences in the Battlefield universe. “.

This aligns with Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella’s sentiments in December that EA is now looking to create a “connected Battlefield universe” that explores different avenues and business models – one of which may be a dedicated solo project. .
