Star Wars Battlefront 2 will most likely release sometime later this year and will feature a single player story mode spanning across multiple eras
Star Wars Battlefront will be getting a sequel this year. EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed in a statement sent to shareholders that the DICE game will indeed be getting a sequel, most likely during the “holiday season”, between September and December. What’s more, Star Wars Battlefront 2 will feature a single-player campaign. And this time around, it will be co-developed by DICE, Motive and Criterion.
Not everyone was happy when Star Wars Battlefront launched last year. Many didn’t get the sequel they had hoped for, and had instead gotten a disappointing, half-baked, multiplayer-only game. It didn’t do too badly though, however, EA want to ensure that Star Wars Battlefront 2, or whatever they plan to call the sequel, doesn’t leave fans hanging. Which could also be why they’ve got Motive and Criterion co-developing this one alongside DICE.
“We’re thrilled to bring a new Star Wars Battlefront game to fans worldwide in the 2017 holiday season. In the past two years, Rogue One and The Force Awakens have 4 opened new storylines and captured the imagination of hundreds of millions of Star Wars fans,” said Wilson. “Our next Star Wars Battlefront will be even bigger, taking players into more locations, and allowing them to play with more heroes and characters across multiple Star Wars eras”.
EA previously mentioned that Star Wars Battlefront’s sequel will offer “an extremely deep and engaging” experience; they were hinting at a single player mode last year as well. Also, the fact that multiple eras will feature should make a lot of Star Wars fans out there quite happy. The statement makes mention of Rogue One and The Force Awakens as well, and how it has opened new storylines. So don’t be surprised to see content based around those installments as well.
In case you’re wonder about the other Star Wars games, which is currently being developed by Visceral, there was no mention of it.
