EA’s Seattle Studio Hiring for Next Battlefield Single-Player Campaign

EA has begun recruiting developers to join its new Seattle studio to begin work on an upcoming single-player Battlefield campaign, according to a job listing. The listing states that the studio is looking to create “rich, exciting stories with memorable characters and powerful experiences all in the Battlefield universe”.

One specific job mentioned is Design Director, which will be tasked with leading the single-player side of the series, and would be responsible for “orchestrating the mission design, narrative, game mechanics, and systems to create the highest quality experience possible”.

The listing seemingly confirms that EA will be bringing single-player campaigns back to the Battlefield series of games. Though, it’s not clear if this will be a recurring point in all future entries or if this is a single-case scenario.

EA formed the Seattle studio last year and already hosts talent such as Marcus Lehto, responsible for co-creating the Halo franchise while still at Bungie as well as acting as art, creative and game director. This is the second studio in the area which was set up by former Monolith Productions lead, Kevin Stephens, and it’s claimed the studio will focus on open-world action-adventure titles.

While the new Seattle studio will be seemingly creating a new Battlefield single-player campaing, DICE’s general manager, Rebecka Coutaz, has affirmed that the developer is by no means stepping away from the series. Coutaz reportedly told that the studio has “no-time” to pursue non-Battlefield projects.

“We are only focusing on Battlefield 2042. There is no time for anything else and this is what we want to do. In three years, we want to be the first-person shooter powerhouse that DICE deserves to be, and that is what we’re going for”.

EA has already admitted its failures regarding Battlefield 2042 to its staff in an internal meeting, though they haven’t given up on the game just yet. Despite this, there is already a new Battlefield game that is in pre-production which it seems the Seattle studio will be involved in.
