Single-player could be returning to the Battlefield series

The Battlefield single player campaign is returning, that’s according to a job listing by Electronic Arts. But have bridges been burned?

The job listing in question is for a Design Director based at EAsBattlefield Seattle Studio” in the United States. The would-be applicant is to work on a future Battlefield single player campaign.

According to the job listing, the Battlefield Seattle Studio is: “focused on building rich, exciting stories with memorable characters and powerful experiences all in the Battlefield universe.

We are building a new studio in the Seattle area composed of leaders and talent with a vast array of AAA game dev experience,” it continues. “As we assemble our diverse team, all who have a voice in making great games together, we’re looking for a healthy mixture of tempered veterans and young passionate individuals eager to make a difference.

The Design Director would be required to: “manage the design team and design vision of a new Battlefield campaign. Your job is to orchestrate the mission design, narrative, game mechanics, and systems to create the highest quality experience possible.

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.

Battlefield 2042 is a disaster

While this news will excite some loyal fans of the Battlefield series, it’s likely that any new single player campaign might be a couple of years away. Since the launch of Battlefield 2042, it’s been a snowball of disaster. So I would fully expect EA not to rush into the next instalment.

EA decided that Battlefield 2042 would have no single player campaign. Being a multiplayer-only game, Battlefield 2042 has been troubled with a lack of content, core features missing, uninspired level design as well as meaningful modes to name just a few issues.

In terms of trust from fans, EA and DICE could be skating on very thin ice, so it’s paramount that they get the next release of Battlefield absolutely right. To be fair, DICE has been trying to fix Battlefield 2042, but it could all be too little, too late.
