EA has confirmed that a Star Wars Battlefront sequel is currently in the works and is set to release next year. The new game is said to have “bigger and better worlds” thanks to having “the new movies to work off of.” This is exciting news seeing as the first entry only contained worlds from the original trilogy as well as one DLC level from The Force Awakens. With Rogue One releasing this year and Episode VIII coming in 2017, Battlefront 2 should have plenty of new and exciting settings for players to visit.
A sequel comes as no surprise after EA announced that Star Wars Battlefront has already shipped over 14 million copies. EA now has plans for three Star Wars games, with this Battlefront sequel coming next year, while Respawn Entertainment and Visceral Games work on two additional Star Wars titles.
