Game news Battlefield: Single Player Returns is from the creator of Halo! First details
It has long been rumored that Battlefield’s single-player campaign would be revived in one way or another, and now we have confirmation. And best of all, it won’t be done by anyone!
Party at da Lehto, Inna da Lehto
Battlefield 2042 will have chosen to dodge the single player mode to focus exclusively on multiplayer, which we all know. Unfortunately, things didn’t go quite as planned and some players eventually lost the campaign, prompting EA to react: the publisher has just officially confirmed that the Battlefield single-player universe was developed by a brand new studio.
This is called Ridgeline Games and is specifically piloted by Marcus Lehto. The latter is no ordinary person as he is the co-creator of the Halo saga when he worked on Bungie! Quite at ease in FPS, this will then deal with this specific part of the franchise, without knowing exactly what form it will take: are we talking about a specific video game? or more titles? Exclusively solo (which would be the first time) or with multiplayer, concocted by another company? We imagine that we will be fixed soon.
Second chance for Lehto
If Marcus Lehto is truly known for being partly behind the Halo saga, he finally left Bungie in 2012 to found his own studio, V1 Interactive. He will have given birth to the Disintegration game in 2020: the problem is that the game was a total flop and the company will have closed its doors a year later.
It was in October 2021 that we learned that the developer had finally landed in Electronic Arts, creating his own team which therefore bears the name of Ridgeline Games. It seems good to point out that this new entity is under the direction of Vince Zampella, the founder of Respawn Entertainment (Apex Legends, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order). This was recently designed to take control of the future of Battlefield. He also said:
We continue to invest in the future of the franchise by including new talent and potential customers. With Marcus and his Ridgeline Games team joining the global team we have already established, Battlefield is in the best position to succeed.
For his part, Marcus Lehto tells himself “Honored to have the opportunity to partner with DICE and Ripple Effect (formerly DICE Los Angeles, ed) and to guide the expansion of storytelling, storytelling and characters in the Battelfield series “. A whole program.
