According to IGN, Byron Beede has joined EA as Battlefield SVP and GM.
EA said the move “signals a strategic, long-term commitment to the growth of the franchise”.
Beede held various roles at Activision, including executive vice president and general manager of Destiny, and most recently the same position for the Call of Duty franchise.
During his time overseeing Call of Duty, Activision launched free-to-play series entries Call of Duty Mobile in November 2019 and Warzone in March 2020. The former has been downloaded over 500 million times and the latter has attracted over 100 million players.
A low-quality version of what is claimed to be a Battlefield 6 trailer intended for internal use seemingly leaked in full last week.
Battlefield 4 is currently available as a free download to Amazon Prime customers as part of its Prime Gaming subscription.
