EA Says No Battlefield Next Year, New Star Wars Battlefront Instead

You’ll have to wait for a new Battlefield, but the next Battlefront is expected to come out in the Fall. Expect much more content, including source material that goes beyond the original trilogyآ—will I finally be able to play as Jar Jar?

EA Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen stated that a new Battlefield title wouldn’t be releasing for a "couple of years." Instead EA will be pushing Star Wars Battlefront‘s sequel (Star Wars Battlefront III 2, maybe) as their big fall shooter. The latest title in EA’s bread-and-butter Battlefield franchise came out last month to excellent reviews and high sales. However, for now, EA hasn’t announced any future plans for the series aside from the four expansion packs that will be coming to Battlefield 1 over the next year.
