Changes are afoot at EA as the company is shaking up the Battlefield franchise.
These changes are starting off with Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella being out in charge of the franchise going forward. His new position comes on the heels of DICE GM Oskar Gabrielson exiting the studio.
Another change in leadership puts Halo designer Marcus Lehto in charge of bringing more to the franchise by starting a new studio in Seattle focused on bringing more storytelling elements to the series. His new studio will work alongside DICE as well as Battlefield Portal developer Ripple Effect, which according to GameSpot is “developing a new Battlefield experience in the Battlefield 2042 universe.”
