The following Battlefield appears to be a recent begin for the collection, judging by among the feedback made by EA executives as a part of the writer's Q1 FY2024 earnings. The sport has massive query marks hanging over it, not simply because followers do not know if it is going to be a sequel, remake or one thing fully totally different.
Whereas we have no stable solutions to those questions, EA CEO Andrew Wilson might have hinted on the path the Battlefield collection might be taking. Wilson informed buyers that the following sport might be “a re-imagination of Battlefield as a very related ecosystem,” in keeping with The Motley Idiot's transcription of the decision.
The remainder of the decision barely touches on Battlefield past these extremely broad factors, however that assertion may be sufficient to know the place EA is taking the franchise. Calling the following Battlefield a “re-imagination” strongly suggests we're a reboot (perhaps a mushy one). It is no secret that Battlefield 2042's ambitions to combine hero-style personalities with the basic sandbox gameplay didn't work.
Vince Zampella, whom EA tapped to steer Battlefield after the disastrous launch of 2042, admitted as a lot. Since shortly after the sport's launch, DICE has labored arduous to reverse or considerably change a lot of what gave that sport its identification, in an effort to deliver it nearer to the basic type of Battlefield.
As for the “actually related ecosystem” path, we are able to guess that it means Battlefield might be taking just a few concepts from rival collection Name of Obligation. For years now, Name of Obligation managed to keep up a dwell service with a free-to-play product, in Warzone, alongside yearly premium releases. The 2 share weapons, purchases, skins and so forth and are inseparable.
EA may be very eager on creating its model of that interconnected system with Battlefield. The writer is not hiding these aspirations, both, having employed former Name of Obligation boss Byron Beede to co-lead Battlefield alongside Zampella.
We're seemingly a protracted whereas away from even getting correct hints in regards to the subsequent Battlefield, however we do hope EA learns its lesson from the latest Battlefield launches.
