A lot of new characters from the newer “Star Wars” movies are featured in the upcoming “Star Wars: Battlefront 2” that EA teased on Tuesday at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference. EA CFO Blake Jorgensen confirmed but did not officially announced the Battlefront sequel. One hint he dropped is that the new game is “dramatically larger” than the original game released in 2015.

Star Wars Universe Is So Vast

He notes that the Star Wars universe is so vast as a source to build games. The original “Star Wars: Battlefront” game had content and characters from the Original “Star Wars” movie. EA also got characters from the prequel to the 1977 film, “Star Wars: Rogue One,” GameSpot reports.

Jorgensen says the untitled “Star Wars: Battlefront” sequel, made by Motive Studios, would be a single-player campaign. He adds the subject of BioWare’s mystery new IP would be more sci-fi related. His statement follows what EA CEO Andrew Wilson said in the earlier part of 2017 that when the game comes to mind, players should think about the great RPG character development and storyline progression BioWare is known for.

Single-Player Campaign

In December, DICE confirmed a single-player campaign for “Star War: Battlefront 2” which was teased in early 2016 and by Eurogamer. Only SP reports that Paul Keslin, DICE producer, says the story elements that were introduced as part of the last two downloadable content packs for “Death Star” and “Rogue One: Scarif,” titles of the rebooted series, indicate the team’s ambition.

During the conference call for the “Star Wars Battlefront” sequel, Jorgensen also provided updates on other EA games. “Battlefronts” would have “fantastic” engagement levels, while EA would add to “Madden NFL 18” a lot of elements which made “FIFA 17” successful. EA would also aim for “Assassin’s Creed” to become a new franchise, although Jorgensen admits it is still too early for that, Gameup 24 reports.
