Based in Seattle and led by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto, the studio’s mission is to create a story-based campaign in the Battlefield universe “that will engage fans in new and exciting ways while remaining true to the classic elements of Battlefield. Series “.
After an episode that disappointed and didn’t offer a single player campaign, it’s good to learn that the franchise is about to welcome a single player experience once again.
The future of Battlefield multiplayer
Byron Beede also took advantage of this release to clarify the situation regarding the future multiplayer of the license. Therefore, DICE will once again use its expertise to develop a unique multiplayer sequel, while Ripple Effect “focuses on creating an entirely new Battlefield experience that will complement and build upon the foundation of the series.”
