Battlefield 2042 turned out a pretty controversial entry in the long running first person shooter franchise. Even before all the post-launch drama arrived surrounding the state of the game, EA decided to cull a single-player campaign for last year's game. However, it looks like that move will be reverted with future entries.
The company has posted a new job listing, looking for developers for its EA Seattle studio. A Design Director that'll "manage the design team and design vision of a new Battlefield campaign" is one such available position, meaning yep, EA is looking to bring back Battlefield's campaign mode. Here's part of the job description:
Your job is to embrace the core tenets of the Battlefield franchise and make sure they are woven through all layers of a masterfully designed single player campaign. You will build the studio's design team and culture and build an amazing campaign from concept through release.
How that campaign will take shape remains to be seen. The two historical entries before 2042 opted for 'War Stories'; a selection of individual story missions that made up a broader campaign mode. We liked these quite a lot, but this listing seems to hint at a more comprehensive campaign effort next time around.
For now, the core DICE studio says it's fully focused on Battlefield 2042, although it's pretty safe to say that work will have begun on the next series entry. As for it's time period and setting? We know nothing on those details just yet.
Are you happy to see campaign return to Battlefield? Or should MP remain the big focus? Let us know below!
EA: yeah, Dobbin be dead but he still enjoys a good flogging!
Bring back Bad Company!!
@Decoy_Snake Yes, I can’t believe it’s been 12 years since Bad Company 2. It’s about time they brought the series back.
I’d love a full on 4 player bombastic online co op campaign. That’s how they could really separate themselves from cods campaign.
I’m completely over world war 1/2 setting though. So whatever it is I hope it’s looking forward rather than looking back
I feel the best route for Battlefield at this point is taking a long break from new games and do remasters instead (especially the 2 Bad Company games and Battlefield 3).
Great news! I'm a sucker for FPS campaigns. Cheesy military ones are a guilty pleasure of mine. The 360 was the golden era, I really hope they make a comeback.
It really does boggle my mind how EA (and Ubi for that matter) got so far from what made their respective franchises great (Battlefield, Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six) and can't seem to figure out how to fix them when they literally have the winning formula shouting and waving at them from 2004.
And before people mention how successful RS:Siege is; it's Rainbow Six in name only. The people that play it are not the ones that enjoyed RS back in the day.
@Decoy_Snake Came here to say exactly that, bring back Bad Company. It’s their most popular series within the Battlefield franchise, I don’t get why nobody at DICE/EA haven’t already thought about making Bad Company 3, the fans would love nothing more. I’d take both Bad Company games and all it’s DLCs made with the Frostbite Engine over anything they come up with next.
@BartoxTharglod Of course, anything's "possible." And I'm not gatekeeping anything. People that enjoy those games are free to do so. But the ones that enjoyed RS back in the day (like 20 yrs ago) aren't likely the majority of Siege's player base. We're well into our 40's now. That's just a fact.
How about bringing back battlefield to battlefield...
