Star Wars Battlefront will not have a traditional single player campaign. Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir, senior producer at DICE, has said that Battlefront’s history is rooted in multiplayer and that is the reasoning behind the decision.
“As we concepted the game and thought about the legacy of the previous Battlefront games–they didn’t really have campaigns, they’ve always been predominately a multiplayer franchise. That’s what we wanted to do,” she explained. “We wanted to focus on the multiplayer.” “From the start it had a pure multiplayer focus,” Ingvarsdottir added. “It was a lot of the pedigree of the DICE studio, in terms of having delivered great multiplayer in the past, and for us we feel like this is more of a multiplayer franchise. So that’s been the focus.”
Personally, my fond memories of Battlefront II are playing local co-op in split-screen with my brother or with a friend, so I can’t say that I agree with DICE on this one. What do you think?
