Star Wars Battlefront sequel coming next year
During an earnings call on Tuesday, EA confirmed that the Star Wars Battlefront sequel is in development for next year (via GameSpot), though it’s unclear if they were referring to the calendar year 2017 or EA’s next fiscal year. EA’s fiscal year 2017 just started on April 1.
EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said that the Star Wars Battlefront sequel will have “bigger and better worlds” and will make use of content from “the new movies.” The first Star Wars Battlefront only included content from the original Star Wars trilogy.
EA added that the company expects to release a Star Wars game every year for the next three to four years. Jorgensen confirmed that the Star Wars game from Visceral and Motive is coming and we already knew the Respawn Star Wars game is also on the way.

Star Wars Battlefront allows fans to live out a wide range of heroic moments and intense battle fantasies of their own – firing blasters, riding speeder bikes and snow speeders, commanding AT-ATs and piloting TIE fighters and the Millennium Falcon. These battles take place on some of the most iconic planets in the Star Wars universe, including Endor, Hoth, Tatooine and the previously-unexplored planet, Sullust. Gamers can play as some of the most memorable characters in the original trilogy such as Darth Vader and Boba Fett. Star Wars Battlefront features a wide range of modes tailored for different types of battles, from larger 40-person competitive multiplayer to crafted missions that are played solo, with a friend via split-screen offline or co-operatively online.
Star Wars Battlefront is available now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. You can order your own copy here.
