Battlefield is on Break so EA Can Focus on Star Wars Battlefront
We hope you like Battlefield 1, because it's the last time you'll see the series for a few years.
EA chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen announced to investors that the company is taking a break from Battlefield "for a couple of years" to focus on the Star Wars Battlefront franchise.
EA wants to address player concerns with Battlefront to ensure that the next entry will have enough content to satisfy players, so expect a campaign in the next game. EA plans on releasing a new Star Wars Battlefront game in late 2017, just in time for Episode VIII.
Jorgensen explained that the next entry in the series will include more content from the newer films, since fans will be be more familiar with the new characters and story. The company believes that this will make the game feel much grander and inclusive.
Not having a new Battlefield or Battlefront every year helps the franchises to feel fresh and exciting when new entries are released. Hopefully this means players will be able to look forward to a very robust and complete package next Fall, when the next Battlefront is released.
