The next big update for Star Wars Battlefront 2 Battle for Scarif has been delayed by EA DICE until mid-April. The reason for the delay is due to the fact that the developers have moved to a work from home setting away from the studio due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The statement confirming this, which was released on Reddit, can be read below.
We wanted to give you a few updates on Star Wars Battlefront II. As you may have seen, last week DICE began its work from home operations in order to best protect the team’s health and well-being.
The Star Wars team have now moved away from our office setup and into our homes.
Work continues on the game but the adjustment from the office environment into our homes has caused some knock-on effects to our workflows. We’re currently streamlining these processes and adapting as we move forward.
As a result of this we have decided to move the release of the Battle on Scarif Update to Mid-April. This is our new target time-frame but as the situation continues to develop, we will keep you posted on any further timing adjustments.
The Battle of Scarif update will see Supremacy mode come to the Age of Rebellion, and while Scarif is the main focus other locations from Rebellion will be added to the rotation. Additional locations for Heroes vs Villains and Co-Op will also be added as well as new heroes and villains making an appearance. Instant Action will be updated to include the Age of Rebellion. Finally, another way to play offline will be added to the game too.
Currently, Star Wars Battlefront 2 has double XP running and on this weekend that will be upped to triple XP to really rank up.
