Slowly but surely, the return of the Battlefield single-player campaign is picking up steam. First, EA created Ridgeline Games to lead development on future Battlefield narrative campaigns. Now, EA is expanding DICE with a new team which will support Ridgeline in developing the franchise's first single-player campaign since 2018's Battlefield V.

Ridgeline Games is the studio led by Marcus Lehto, one of the co-creators of the Halo franchise. The creation of this new support studio at DICE is a slight departure from EA's initial plans, as noted by Those plans being that Ridgeline Games would be alone in creating the new single-player campaign while Ripple Effect would be working on a different Battlefield game. At the time, DICE would solely be focused on working on the future multiplayer experiences in the franchise.

Former Battlefield 4 producer David Sirland returned to DICE in December 2022. Sirland helped bring other Battlefield titles to the world such as Battlefield 2, Battlefield 1, Battlefield V, and Battlefield: Bad Company. With his return to DICE, he is helping to lead development of Battlefield once again.
