Many gamers are still skeptical about the upcoming Star Wars title as didn’t live up to the expectations. However, developers believe that there is no reason that fans would not want to be a part of Star Wars Battlefront 2.
This is the first game that’s had all three eras. I mean, our goal is to create the essential Star Wars shooter. When you think about all the eras, when you think about the single player, space combat, classes…There’s so much depth there. I don’t see how any shooter fan or any Star Wars fan would not want to be a part of SWBFII.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a first-person action shooter in development at DICE and is scheduled to launch this fall for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
