Games have become increasingly connected and social, with always-on features being both part of a permanent player engagement (and monetization) attempt. As a result, some publishers are already looking to not so slowly eliminate big budget, single-player premium experiences from their games. One need not look much further than one of the industry’s behemoths, Call of Duty, which has been confirmed, in its latest Black Ops IV iteration which will launch this year, that single player content has been wholly cut- despite a three-year development window and Black Ops being one of the best storytelling experiences to Call of Duty in recent times.
EA, perhaps picking up on the momentum of backlash against the lack of single player content in the upcoming Black Ops IV, has confirmed the upcoming Battlefield 5 will not eschew a single player component, giving players the premium campaign experience we’ve come to know. The next Battlefield (which is expected to be set in World War II) will likely release around October of this year, sporting the usual campaign and multiplayer modes, with a chance of a battle royale mode as well.
