“Not been saying much here since I dont have anything positive to say about EA [and] my recent departure,” says Lehto. “And how so many, including my team, are suffering due to the industry sweeping layoffs.” Lehto later posted on LinkedIn saying he’s “incredibly upset and very sad” about the layoffs and Ridgeline “are very talented people whose lives are being upended needlessly.”

The single-player campaign in the works at Ridgeline was a co-development with DICE, which Lehto had previously said would “engage players in new ways.” It was apparently a standalone project, though what if anything will happen to it now is unknown.
