EA confirms Star Wars Battlefront sequel for next fall

Star Wars Battlefront didn’t exactly live up to the expectations of fans but it sounds like those same fans won’t have to wait too long to get their hands on DICE’s second attempt to revive the Battlefront franchise.

During a recent Electronic Arts investor call, EA’s chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen confirmed that the upcoming sequel to Battlefront which the company first announced back in May will be released “a year from now,” suggesting that the sequel’s release window will be fall, 2017. This more than narrowly defines EA’s previous release window estimates which covered the 2017 stretch of April to December.

Jorgensen wasn’t able to confirm whether the sequel will have a dedicated story campaign (a feature which Battlefront players lamented the absence of), but he did say that DICE is working hard to ensure the sequel offers a deep and engaging experience.
