While there’s not a lot to go on when it comes to the next Battlefield game, we do know that the new game is not solely being developed by DICE, but alongside new first-party studio Ripple Effect, who is handling the single-player campaign, and is also being spearheaded by Respawn boss Vince Zampella, who now also acts as the new big boss when it comes to the Battlefield franchise as a whole.

Speaking at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia & Technology Conference, Electronic Arts (EA) CEO Andrew Wilson comments on how a former competitor is now building a Battlefield “for the future.”
The relaunch of Battlefield, one of the great first-person shooters of our generation. We employed a leadership group from our competitor who has basically rearchitected how that competitor went to market and they’re building Battlefield for the future. I’m unbelievably excited about that. – Andrew Wilson, EA CEO
Wilson’s comment somehow ties into earlier comments on how the next Battlefield title is a “reimagination of a truly connected ecosystem,” which seems like a nice play on words on how it’ll integrate live services.
Let’s hope that whatever future building EA is doing for Battlefield now, it’s something players will embrace the moment it’s released.
