The co-creator ofHalo on a single-player Battlefield campaign
After the failure of Disintegration, Marcus Lehto, co-creator ofHalo, found refuge with Electronic Arts and not just anyhow. He took on the roles of boss and game director of a new studio. It is officially called Ridgeline Games. His mission ? Focus on the narrative dimension of the franchise that EA wants to push.
Marcus Lehto and his colleagues will even have the delicate task of reviving this aspect with a single player campaign in the universe of BF. An autonomous solo? A campaign within the next multiplayer opus? The answer is not for now.
It’s a great honor to have the opportunity to collaborate with DICE as well as Ripple Effect and to be tasked with expanding what’s possible in terms of storytelling, story and character development in the series. Battlefield.
