When it comes to FPS games, especially games such as Call Of Duty and Battlefield, a large part of the player base don't play the campaign, instead, they solely play the games online mode
Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 skipped the campaign entirely.
Now, it looks like Battlefield could be heading in the same direction.
Battlefield To Skip Campaign?
Prominent Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson noted that during the last EA earnings call no mention of the Battlefield campaign was made saying,
"I had to look back at the past EA earnings calls, but this is the first earnings call (prior to a reveal) where EA has not mentioned a campaign coming to this year's #BATTLEFIELD. Could be something... Could be nothing."
It would be interesting if EA decided to skip the campaign entirely.
As mentioned previously, Black Ops 4 went in this direction, and while the game was fairly popular at the time, mainly due to the Blackout mode, which set the stage for what eventually would become Warzone, the game has largely been forgotten about today as it is just a multiplayer title.
Whereas, even though most people discuss the multiplayer, people look back fondly on other entries in the series such as Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops because both also had excellent campaigns.
It is worth noting that, if it turns out to be true, that Battlefield could have simply become collateral damage from the current global pandemic.
With developers working from home, it must be extremely difficult to create games when they're not in the usual studio setting.
So, it is possible that a decision was made to just cut the campaign and save it for the next game.
But, we don't know that the game won't have a campaign, just it hasn't been mentioned yet.
We can expect to see Battlefield revealed next month during EA Play Live, so we will find out then what direction the game is going in.
