Are you a fan of Star Wars: Battlefront and can’t wait to dig into a sequel? If so, you’ll be happy to know that Electronic Arts announced a sequel to the game will be released in 2017. While the company did not give an exact date, that won’t matter to fans expecting a solid experience similar to or better than the previous game.
Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen confirmed in an interview with GameSpot that Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is slated to hit store shelves in 2017. EA sold over 14 million copies of the first game in the 2016 fiscal year, making it one of the most successful first-person shooters.
Jorgensen went on to add that the new game will feature “bigger and better” worlds, many of which we have seen from the new Star Wars movies. This means fans should be given the opportunity to play on planets from the new films, along with controlling new characters such as Kylo Ren and the newest addition to the Jedi Order.
Fans are hoping the new Star Wars: Battlefront game will feature space battles. The previous did not despite the gameplay feature being one of the most important aspects of the older games.
Electronic Arts is on roll, having recently launched the Battlefield 1 trailer after much anticipation. The new game World War 1 backdrop managed to excite the gaming community due to the over-saturation of modern and future first-person shooters. The trailer has so far amassed over 20 million views on YouTube, more than Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, despite the latter being released nearly a week before.
