It seems that the next Battlefield (or the one after that, perhaps) will feature a single-player campaign, despite Battlefield 2042 skipping a narrative component altogether. EA is currently hiring developers to join its new studio in Seattle, headed up by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto.
Calling for staff to participate in the creation of “rich, exciting stories with memorable characters and powerful experiences all in the Battlefield universe,” the job listing (spied by VGC) puts out a call for a design director, suggesting the project is in the early stages of development.
Furthermore, the listing asks that said design director help “orchestrate the mission design, narrative, game mechanics, and systems to create the highest quality experience possible.” It sounds like future Battlefield entries could be returning to a solo campaign, which can only be considered a good thing.
EA's new Seattle studio has Lehto as its lead, whose last game was first-person shooter and strategy hybrid, Disintegration, released in June 2020. Meanwhile, developer DICE has recently asserted its commitment to Battlefield 2042, claiming it has no time for other projects like Mirror's Edge and such.
We've said it once, we'll say it again: Battlefield: Bad Company 3, please? Pretty please?
