EA has confirmed that there will not be a Battlfield game releasing in 2017, with the release spot being taken by the next Star Wars Battlefront title instead. The announcement was made by EA’s Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen in a speech during the NASDAQ Investor Program. Battlefield 1 released last month and will be getting quite a bit of support through expansion packs that will span most of next year.
There was some discussion regarding the next Battlefront game and how EA are listening to the criticisms of last year’s title. With the new movies coming out the publisher will be using content from them to flesh out the experience of the new Battlefront. A release date and proper details won’t be available until some point in 2017.
