Even though most people who played the Battlefield 2042 voice their concerns over the pre-release beta, with an overwhelming opinion that it should’ve been delayed even further, it still released because, ya know, shareholders and shit.
Battlefield 2042 hit, then immediately was lambasted by both critics and fans of the series for being a buggy mess of a product. Sure, they’ve dropped three updates since it released but there are many issues still to go.
Of course, in a bid to make everyone happy, EA is making drastic moves so that this supposedly won’t happen again, as Respawn’s Vince Zampella is taking over as the ‘Head of Battlefield’ and the Battlefield universe of games, as they’ve announced a major expansion of the franchise as three studios will now be 100% Battlefield studios.
DICE, Ripple Effect, and Marcus Lehto’s unannounced team will be building a ‘Battleverse’ of titles going forward. Other changes include DICE GM Oskar Gabrielson leaving the company, being replaced by Rebecka Coutaz, a former studio director at Ubisoft.
You can read much more here, including quotes from all the big wigs at EA. I do have faith in Vince, considering the magic he worked on both Medal of Honor and Call of Duty over the years combined with Titanfall and Apex Legend. He knows what the hell he is doing.
