DICE is trying to save Battlefield 2042, but according to leaks, the company has already started work on the new version of the series. It looks like a new team from EA is working on the shooter, which was responsible for developing the fictional campaign.
Can Battlefield 2042 be saved? Apparently, the project is supervised by a smaller team, which is only trying to develop new previously planned content, and the main branch of DICE is already working on the development of a completely new part of the series.
However, it seems that the game needs a lot of support, because in October 2021, EA opened a new studio, headed by Marcus Lehto, co-creator of the Halo series, whose formation was tasked with developing a new shooting game.
Marcus Leto is looking for a Project Manager for Seattle Eye Applicants must be familiar with “The core principles of the Battlefield series and making sure they are woven into all layers of a brilliantly designed single-player campaign”. Content creators need at least 10 years of experience as a manager or leader of a large team.

Apparently, EA is learning from its mistakes, and while the company is still joking about single-player games on social media, you know, the company is developing a number of story-oriented products, and we can also expect a campaign in the Battlefield series.
Of course, there are still a lot of changes, with a new Battlefield likely to debut in just a few years, but due to the problems of the last installment of the series, which does not have a campaign, EA can offer an engaging story. For dedicated IP lovers.
