In the modern gaming landscape, expecting just a single-player component can be a tall ask, especially for juggernaut gaming franchises, and for some, there might not even be room for solo enjoyment. That fate is what has befallen the Battlefield series in recent years, but if a new job listing is to be believed, single-player campaigns could be making a comeback.
The news comes via a job listing for a design director at EA‘s Seattle studio. As reported by VGC, this new hire will be responsible for “creating a best-in-class single-player campaign experience” together with a “player-first mentality, motivated by a passionate aim to understand and serve the players who are engaged with the game”.
The ideal candidate must have a “passion and understanding of single-player campaigns and how to innovate within that space.”
Of course, campaigns were not a thing with the latest Battlefield 2042, and that did not exactly do the game any favours either. Older titles did feature single-player experiences, albeit in shorter bursts or folded into the multiplayer portion of the game.
With Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto leading up the Battlefield universe project over at the Seattle studio, it would appear that those hoping for single-player campaigns can get a little more excited. Then again, it remains unclear just what this new studio will be getting up to, even with a new design director coming on board.
