Star Wars Battlefront was released in the fourth quarter of 2015 and gained immense popularity, especially in the Star Wars community. Unsurprisingly, the financial success of Star Wars Battlefront has led the game’s makers to green light a sequel, pleasing those who enjoyed the first game. The announcement was made during EA’s earning calls by Blake Jorgensen, CFO for EA. According to him, fans will be able to get their hands on the Battlefront sequel in the Fall of 2017.
He also stated that the team behind the game is focused on securing the high-quality standard set by 2015’s title. The 2015 Battlefront installment wasn’t the first ever made. It was actually a reboot of the original Battlefront game, and while it focused on the story and elements surrounding the original Star Wars movies, the officials say that the sequel will make good use of the newer movies and everything that goes along with them.
EA Dice will once again take the reins of EA’s Star Wars project, with the help of Motive Studios. While the fanbase awaits Battlefront 2, they can go watch some of the upcoming Star Wars movies, as it seems that the Star Wars franchise is once again at full operational speed. Who knows, there’s a chance Battlefront 2 will also incorporate elements from the movies that haven’t been released yet, prolonging the franchise’s lifespan for the foreseeable future.
