It's Battlefield or bust for developer DICE.
Battlefield 2042

If you wanted something else from developer DICE, like maybe a new Mirror's Edge, you're going to have a long wait. In the here and now, DICE has no plans to make anything not-Battlefield related. In fact, it seems as though the studio is only focused on Battlefield 2042 at the moment.

DICE vice president Rebecka Coutaz sat down with in a new interview. Coutaz says that any projects that are not related to Battlefield are "totally" out of the question. She says that the studio is "only focusing on Battlefield 2042."

"We are only focusing on Battlefield 2042. There is no time for anything else and this is what we want to do. In three years, we want to be the first-person shooter powerhouse that DICE deserves to be, and that is what we're going for."
This statement comes following discussion about just what has been going on at DICE these past several months following the disastrous launch of Battlefield 2042. The game launched in what can best be described as a "dire state" and that may be putting it mildly. While I cannot personally attest to the state of the game at present, I have heard more positive things about the game since the launch of Season One than in any of the months prior.

"The launch of Battlefield 2042 was not as expected. Our players and community were disappointed, but so was our development team. We have focused on the health of the game, and so bug after bug, patch after patch, we are fixing and improving it. And each patch we have a little, little win, and that is important for our team because they were disappointed. We're celebrating 30 years as a studio but also 20 years on Battlefield, and we have players who've been with us for 20 years and to disappoint them... it's really hard on us.

"So we want to improve the core gameplay experience and that is what we have focused on. And now, as you might know, we just released season one, and we have good feedback. The players are enjoying our map and the content that we have provided, so it's a win for us and it makes us feel better. The team is here to make Battlefield, and they're passionate about Battlefield. We have many Battlefield veterans. So it's important for us to improve Battlefield 2042 and the experience that we can provide to our players. We owe them that."
When asked if it is tempting to just call it quits Battlefield 2042 development and move on to the next thing, Coutaz says, "No, we couldn't do that to our players and we couldn't do that to ourselves."
