In the follow up to the Star Wars Battlefront 2 launch, Disney and GOG restored multiplayer for the original Star Wars Battlefront 2 which released back in 2005 and just recently the classic game received an update following 12 years after its launch and given that Pandemic doesn’t exist anymore, many wondered who rolled out the Star Wars Battlefront 2 update.
While Disney and Lucasfilm don’t make games anymore but they do have internal teams that manage Star Wars games related partnerships and the latest original Star Wars Battlefront 2 update was rolled out by GOG Galaxy, a Disney representative told USgamer.
Aside from restoring the multiplayer functionality for the original Battlefront 2, the game also supports cross-platform. According to GOG, 2005’s Star Wars Battlefront 2 multiplayer support has been restored and the game will also support cross-play between GOG and Steam which will allow in faster matchmaking.
As for the recent update, it was minor one which brought improved lobby functionality, fix for Steam usernames not being displayed correctly and ping calculations are much more accurate.
While the original game has been receiving a warm welcome from the fans but the recently released Star Wars Battlefront 2 was not much fortunate. The game launched in November 2017 amidst the micro-transaction controversy that started with the game’s beta and was partly the reason for the game’s less than expected sales.
However, industry analyst, Micheal Patcher, think that the conclusion about Star Wars Battlefront 2 sales is a little premature as the fan’s loyalty will bring the retail sales back on track.
Furthermore, Criterion Games has assured that they will be rolling out new offline content for the game in the form of new DLC.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is first-person multiplayer shooter developed by EA DICE for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
