There remains information to be taken with the forceps of circumstance, but insider Tom Henderson just released a new account of Battlefield’s future.
It’s no longer a secret, Battlefield 2042 wasn’t a success and it was the publisher EA who admitted the matter in the last financial report. Under these conditions, we suspect that the DICE studio is actively considering the future of the Battlefield saga. With all these considerations in mind, of course.
A wake-up call for Battlefield
The always well-informed Tom Henderson recently published in xfire a note explaining that a source tells him that the next Battlefield is in development. There is nothing surprising about this, but most importantly, we can learn that DICE became fully aware of the failure of 2042 and made the decision to remove certain features.
I think we’re going to be reverting a lot of the changes we made to Battlefield 2042.
Back to basics?
It’s interesting because the latest game should serve as a benchmark for the saga. We can therefore envision a lot, such as the potential return of a single player campaign, the end of maps in 128 players, and most importantly perhaps the return of conventional armies. Without necessarily having to invent a little ridiculous stories from scratch to give the soldiers a little more depth. Just because it works on Rainbow Six Siege doesn’t mean it will work on Battlefield.
The Battlefield saga also works precisely because the game allows you to play an anonymous soldier in the midst of many others and do whatever you want with them.
