Are you liking the recently released Battlefield 1? We hope so, because there will not be anymore Battlefield titles “for a couple of years”.
According to Blake Jorgensen, EA’s chief financial officer, this is the future for the Battlefield series as of right now. Instead, the focus will be put on the Battlefront franchise.
“We were really working with the old canvas of Star Wars, the old trilogy,” he said. “We weren’t using any of the new materials that came out of [Episode 7] because our game actually came out slightly before the movie. Next year we’ll have the opportunity to leverage more of that content from the new movies and we think that’ll make the opportunity much larger.”
While there isn’t a timetable set for when a new Battlefront game will be announced, a PS VR Star Wars title will be coming soon.
