EA has a lot to do with Battlefield, according to new reports. The publisher announced its intention to create a “Connected Battlefield World”. Battlefield 2042 It just came out, of course, and the publisher plans to expand the franchise even further. According to this would Game Spot It could be similar to what Activision did with Call of Duty: after all, in addition to the annual releases, this universe also consists of the mobile game and Warzone.
To achieve this, EA has appointed Vince Zampella – co-founder of Respawn Entertainment – as the person to oversee the franchise. This new universe is not intended to replace Battlefield 2042, but rather aims to grow the franchise as a whole and that will include many studios working together. This shows that EA will not leave the new member of the franchise as is.
“This is a strategy” and “in many ways, we will continue to evolve and grow in Battlefield 2042, discovering new types of experiences and business models along the way that we can add to this foundation to provide a great set of experiences for our players. In this universe, the world is interconnected with characters and narrative.” This universe is also built with our community as we harness the power of the portal and user-generated content that puts creativity in the hands of our players.”
The reason for bringing up Zampella does not suddenly appear. In the background, for example, he is equally involved in a higher role within EA and its studios. In addition, the Managing Director of DICE, Oscar Gabrielson, announced that he is leaving the developer and taking on a new challenge. In short, there are some changes taking place in the background and it’s clear that EA wants to get more out of the Battlefield franchise. The future will tell us where that will lead us.
My last contract with the team in EA_DICE It was nothing short of amazing. There have been so many great memories working with our teams. But I have now made one of the hardest decisions of my life, which is to leave DICE and Electronic Arts. pic.twitter.com/NVck19pSkh
