Swedish game developer DICE has announced that it will be focusing its efforts on the Battlefield franchise going forward. This move comes as something of a surprise, as the studio is also responsible for the development of other popular franchises such as Mirror’s Edge. However, it seems that DICE believes that the time is right to focus its attention on Battlefield 2042, which is slated to be released later this year. Given the team’s track record of success with the Battlefield franchise, it’s likely that this decision will pay off in the long run. With DICE at the helm, fans can rest assured that Battlefield 2042 will be a game worth playing.
There is a song that fits this situation perfectly,
It’s almost like you had a regular partner but thought about another one on the side. It worked out for some time, but after that you had to come back to the original one. The problem is, you can’t seem to forget about the side piece. They were just so darn compelling! Maybe it was their winning personality or their unlimited attention. Whatever the case may be, now you’re stuck wondering how to get rid of the side piece and go back to your original partner.
In a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Rebecka Coutaz, the new General Manager of DICE, spoke about the studio’s shift in focus to the Battlefield franchise. coutaz said that the decision was made in order to double down on what the studio does best. “We have always been known for our big multiplayer experiences and our ability to create large-scale battle royale games,” she said. “That’s where our heart is, and that’s what we’re going to focus on.” She went on to say that DICE has always been at the forefront of innovation in the shooter genre, and that they plan to continue to push boundaries with the Battlefield franchise. Coutaz concluded by saying that she is excited for the future of DICE and the Battlefield franchise.
At DICE LA, we’re all about making Battlefield 2042 the best it can be. We have a lot of people on the team who are huge fans of the series, and we’re constantly looking for ways to improve upon the formula. Our goal is to make a game that feels fresh and new, while still delivering that signature Battlefield gameplay that fans know and love. We’ve already made a lot of progress, and we can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been working on. Thanks for your interest in Battlefield 2042!
It’s no secret that the Battlefield franchise has been one of the most successful in recent years. With its massive player base and continuous stream of updates and DLC, it’s no wonder that DICE has decided to focus its attention on the Battlefield series. However, this doesn’t mean that there’s no hope for fans of Mirror’s Edge. While the game didn’t sell as well as Battlefield, it still has a dedicated fan base who are clamoring for a sequel. Moreover, with the recent release of the highly acclaimed Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, it’s clear that there is still interest in the franchise. As such, while DICE may be focusing on Battlefield for now, there’s still a chance that we will see another Mirror’s Edge game in the future.
