Electronic Arts (EA) CEO, Andrew Wilson, recently provided some insights into the development of the next Battlefield game. While details are scant, it has been revealed that the game is not solely being developed by DICE, but in collaboration with Ripple Effect, a new first-party studio. Ripple Effect is responsible for handling the single-player campaign and is working closely with Respawn boss Vince Zampella, who is spearheading the project.
Speaking at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia & Technology Conference, Wilson mentioned that they have brought in a leadership group from a former competitor who has rearchitected their approach to market. This team is now building Battlefield “for the future,” and Wilson expressed his excitement about the project.
These comments are in line with earlier statements regarding the next Battlefield title being a “reimagination of a truly connected ecosystem.” This suggests that the game will integrate live services and create an immersive experience for players.
While specific details about the game remain under wraps, Wilson's comments allude to a significant shift in the development of the Battlefield franchise. The collaboration with Ripple Effect and the involvement of Vince Zampella indicate a fresh perspective and a focus on delivering an innovative and engaging gaming experience.
As fans eagerly await the release of the next Battlefield game, EA's efforts to build a game that embraces the future and offers a connected ecosystem have generated excitement. By drawing on the expertise of Ripple Effect and Respawn, the developers aim to create a game that will captivate players from the moment it is launched.
