EA is developing multiple Star Wars games and a sequel to Star Wars Battlefront is one of them. Now the company has shared some new details for the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront 2.
During the earnings call, CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront 2 will launch in Holiday 2017. He added that the game will be bigger than the 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront, featuring more locations and hero characters.
EA has already confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront 2 will feature a single-player campaign and during the conference, Wilson added that the game will feature “multiple Star Wars eras”. During the earning’s call, he specifically called out to The Force Awakens and Rogue One films but did not confirm that locations or characters from these movies will be added to the game.
During the call, Wilson confirmed that the game is being developed by DICE, Motive Studios, and Criterion.
Visceral Games is also working on a Star Wars game and former uncharted director, Amy Hennig, will be directing the game. According to Amy, the new Star Wars game will be spiritually similar to Uncharted series. She insisted that it won’t be “Star Wars uncharted” and said that it is an important distinction to be made.
She explained that in Uncharted players will not see the game cutting away to show the villain’s point of view, it is a third person game but players are always following the protagonist like Indiana Jones movies.
She further added that Star Wars is different, it is an adventure with multiple character arcs which enables “everyone to do things in parallel”.
The new Star Wars game from Visceral Games will be an action adventure title and is speculated to launch in 2018 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
