Today during an earnings call, EA shed some new light on the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront sequel.
First, CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that this game is coming out in holiday 2017. He said this game will be even “bigger” than the 2015 original, featuring more locations and hero characters. It will also have a single-player campaign, which EA had previously strongly hinted at.
Additionally, Wilson said Battlefront 2 will feature content from “multiple Star Wars eras.” During the call, he specifically called out The Force Awakens and Rogue One as films that expanded the series, though he did not outright confirm Battlefront 2 will feature characters and locations from these films.
The original Battlefront already features content from Rogue One in the form of the Rogue One: Scarif expansion that includes Jyn Erso and Orson Krennic characters and maps set on the planet Scarif.
Also during the call, Wilson confirmed that Battlefront 2 is being made by DICE, Motive Studios, and Criterion. We’ll report back with more details on Battlefront 2 as they become available.
