Battlefield 7 Doesn’t Want to Make the Mistake It Made in 2042
As Tom Henderson reports, they say the next Battlefield production should be a lot different than it was in Battlefield 2042.
The development of the next Battlefield has now begun. This was reported by Tom Henderson from the industry in an article on Xfire. For this reason, the game is in the early concept stage.
According to one developer, the team learned “important lessons” from the fan-favorite Battlefield 2042. According to the report, Battlefield 7 is said to have been greenlit by EA despite its predecessor being “internally rated as a failure”.
Henderson has this to say about Battlefield 7:
Many features in Battlefield 2042 shouldn’t be returning – but so far it’s unclear what elements are meant by this. Henderson suspects that the number of 128 participants and the often criticized Experts system may be affected.
A lot of player feedback is currently being collected regarding the class system. It is speculated that EA is now moving away from a true hero shooter plan. For example, a hybrid system of class and hero systems can be considered.
The environment is considered safe, according to Henderson: Battlefield 7 will again serve a modern military scenario in the near future. Returning to historical settings, as in Battlefield 5 and Battlefield 1, therefore seems impossible.
Battlefield 7 is currently in the so-called pre-production stage. The game concept is often worked out to define the basic design and goal of the game before the first prototypes are programmed.
