When EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront hit the consoles last year there was much backlash from fans over how little content was put inside the game. EA has been listening to the fans and plans on making the sequel bigger and better than the first one. EA CFO Blake Jorgensen talked about the game in an investor briefing in Europe. Jorgensen is well aware how fans disapproved over the lack on content in the game and tells what is being planned.
“If there was criticism, they just wanted more. So we’re taking that criticism to heart as we build the next game and trying to address any of the issues that they had.”
Jorgensen also said that the next game will have much content pulled from the new movies. Meaning characters like Kylo Ren and Rey from The Force Awakens could be playable this time around. Jorgensen describes the next game as:
“much bigger, much more exciting Battlefront.”
Even if fans were unhappy with Star Wars: Battlefront it still shipped 14 millions copies and become one of the best selling Star Wars games in history. With the release of DLC the game has grown bigger. The soon to be released Rogue One: Scarif will give content from the upcoming movie. The developer of Titanfall is making a third-person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe. And the team behind Dead Space is also making a Star Wars game. So there is much to look forward to in the future.
