Criterion is needed elsewhere.
The news comes from EA Chief Studios Officer, Laura Miele, who told Polygon of the publisher’s shifting priorities.
“There’s no way we would have made a decision like this without including [Criterion Games] and discussing this with them first, and the impact that they could have on [Battlefield],” Miele said. “They’ve worked on Battlefront, they’ve worked on [previous] Battlefields, and they have a really tight, close collaborative partnership with DICE. I’m really confident that this is going to be a pretty positive win for them.”
