EA confirms Battlefront 2

Making good on a tease for sequels, and coming as a surprise to absolutely no one, Electronic Arts confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront 2 is in active development during today’s earnings call.

While 2015’s Battlefront reboot anchored players in events and characters from the original Star Wars trilogy, Battlefront 2 will expand that far, far away galaxy to rope in “bigger and better worlds […] from the new movies,” according to CFO Blake Jorgensen (per GameSpot).

Confirmation of a sequel comes just after word that last year’s Battlefront has shipped 14 million copies and surpassed EA’s already-lofty expectations for performance.

Jorgensen went on to announce that EA will be publishing at least one new Star Wars game every year for the next three to four years. Battlefront 2 will ship “next year,” though he did not specify whether he means the 2017 calendar year or fiscal year, which began last month on April 1.

The game in development at Visceral and Motive, helmed by ex-Uncharted writer Amy Hennig, will ship sometime during the next year, according to Jorgensen.
