Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Announced For Fall 2017; More Titanfall Coming

Quote:
Electronic Arts spent a big chunk of yesterday's earnings call talking about Titanfall 2 and its plan for the franchise for "years to come." But it also revealed a bit about another of its heavy hitters, Star Wars Battlefront, when CFO Blake Jorgensen hinted that the sequel will arrive near the end of 2017.

EA has previously said that Star Wars Battlefront 2, or whatever it ends up being called, will be out sometime in 2017. But Jorgensen got a little more precise with the timing in response to a question about the likelihood of a new Star Wars Battlefront game in 2017, saying (via Seeking Alpha), "the next Battlefront [is] coming a year from now," and added that EA is "working very hard on making sure that is an extremely deep and engaging offering."

It's not a firm release date, nor is it exactly a revelation: The previous Star Wars Battlefront was released in November 2015, and that's when major game releases tend to come out anyway, as we're seeing right now with Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and Dishonored 2 (among others) all crammed together within about a three-week window. But it's good to hear that things are proceeding apace, and Jorgensen suggested that Visceral's Star Wars game, the one being worked on by Amy Hennig and Jade Raymond, remains on track too. It still hasn't been officially announced but is expected out in 2018.

"We've talked about an action title that's not yet announced, but we're very excited and that's a good chance that that will fall into fiscal 2018," Jorgensen said. "I'm not yet giving guidance for 2018, so I want to be careful that we don't get overboard. But we're confident that we should be able to comp a strong year this year."

Better fix the issues with the original Battlefront, including having a campaign .

I see Vic's still rocking with these long ass titles

A campaign being included is inevitable. EA heard all the bitching & moaning loud and clear when the first game shipped without one. They amended that issue with the Titanfall sequel anyway.

I just hope we get a better selection of villains & heroes this time, with the actual voice actors There's no excuse for EA to not pony up to bring them in, because I am sure the likes of John Boyega would be more than eager to record some stuff for the game.

Campaign's already been confirmed. Motive Studios are working on it.

"More Titanfall coming" if you say so..

I'll be shocked if EA binned that series. They'll just pick a more suitable release date for the third game.

Unless you're being sarcastic then

I just wouldn't expect another for 5 years unless it gets shipped off to a lesser studio.

No way, I'd expect that series to be on a two year cycle. Not unless Respawn are suddenly investing all of their resources to that Star Wars game?

Respawn aren't big enough to make two AAA games simultaneously (well is anybody now). For another to happen so soon they'd need another studio to do the majority of the work. Only one I can see not working on anything is the 3rd DICE studio - LA maybe?

Re: Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Announced For Fall 2017; More Titanfall Coming

Don't see the issue with not having a campaign to be honest. Majority of Star Wars games you play the exact same moments from all the movies and seeing as you can't exactly change canon , there isn't that much you can do with the story anyway to make it original and new. Most peopel are going to gripe you can't play as the original cast like Luke or Han ,so you're basically stuck with those characters. Ultimately, it'll be a bore that people will forget as soon as they're done finishing it. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not against a story mode but for Star Wars its seemingly pointless.
