It turns out that EA is undergoing a major overhaul for the future of Battlefield 2042 and its franchise.
According to the GameSpot report on the 2nd (local time), EA, which introduced a large-scale patch plan to solve the completeness and bug issues that have arisen since the official release of Battlefield 2042, will succeed DICE’s general manager, Oskar Gabrielson, as Vince Vince Zampella has been appointed as the new commander.
Vince Zampella founded Infinity Ward and created the Call of Duty series. After breaking up with Activision, he founded Respawn Entertainment with the support of EA and has created numerous masterpieces such as Apex Legends and Titanfall. Vince Zampella will be in charge of the Battlefield franchise, but will also serve as director of Respawn Entertainment’s major works such as Apex Legends and other projects.
In addition, Marcus Letho, who produced the Halo series and designed the Master Chief, will also join the project. Marcus Leto announced on Twitter on the 3rd of the domestic standard that he was working with the Battlefield franchise, and announced that he was thinking of a development team to work with the project in Seattle. Marcus Leto works with EA to develop the narrative, story, and character of the Battlefield universe.
He also mentioned Battlefield 2042 and future plans for the Battlefield series. As the Battlefield series aims to become a universe, Battlefield 2042 will continue to support and expand live services as a base work for subsequent titles to be released in the future. In addition, EA is contemplating a long-term plan using the Battlefield series, and EA CEO Andrew Wilson suggested various possibilities, saying, ‘We can develop a basic free-to-play Battlefield series’.
