Battlefield is getting a ‘narrative campaign’ from Halo co-creator’s new studio

Despite the well-documented problems with Battlefield 2042, Electronic Arts said today that it remains “all-in on Battlefield (opens in new tab),” and announced that a new studio called Ridgeline Games, led by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto, will be developing an all-new campaign “set in the Battlefield universe.”

Lehto joined EA (opens in new tab) in October 2021 after his project Disintegration, developed at his first post-Halo studio V1 Interactive, failed to take off. EA said at the time that the new studio led by Lehto would “focus on the development of first-person shooters,” though no further details were revealed. Today’s announcement gives a clearer sense of what this team is focused on.
