EA Hires Call Of Duty Veteran To Lead Battlefield Franchise

EA Hires Call Of Duty Veteran To Lead Battlefield Franchise

Electronic Arts is looking to throw a huge Molotov into the mix as they are heating up their development of the next Battlefield title. With the release date of the game set to be revealed on June 9, it appears that EA is pulling out of all the stops to dismount the likes of Call of Duty: Warzone at the top of the FPS Shooter's tree.

As they look to compete with the Activision-owned franchise, EA has now hired Call of Duty General Manager and veteran developer, Byron Beede, as the Senior Vice President of the Battlefield VI project.

According to reports from IGN, EA's appointment of Beede “signals a strategic, long-term commitment to the growth of the franchise”.

Beede was a part of the development team behind Call of Duty: Warzone, which he will now attempt to overpass in popularity. The game developer has also worked on Destiny, bolstering an impressive CV.

What Does Beede's Appointment Mean For Battlefield VI?

With the Battlefield franchise adding both the sixth main title and their mobile app to their long list of content in the coming 12 months, Beede's short-term responsibilities will consist of getting the projects over the line on time. With the gaming sphere seeing many major titles being pushed back, Beede will look to make sure that the development is ticking over in time for its release later this year.

However, EA insists that Beede's appointment will affect the long-term direction of the franchise, indicating that the series will not end with the upcoming title.

Battlefield VI is set to be the biggest project of the franchise's history, boasting lobbies that can hold up to 128 players and fully destructible cities, in the most realistic warfare game of its generation.
