If you’re a fan of Electronic Arts’ Battlefield video game and are hoping to see another game released under that title next year, this latest update is probably gonna put a frown on your face. According to EA’s chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen (via Video Gamer), the company will be putting a new Battlefield game on the back burner for a few more years while they focus their attention towards releasing a sequel to Star Wars Battlefront.
Battlefield won’t be returning for another “couple of years”, EA’s chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen has confirmed, with the publisher instead banking on a new Star Wars Battlefront title late next year.
Speaking at the Nasdaq 35th Investor Program earlier today, Jorgensen stated that EA “won’t have another Battlefield back for a couple of years. Next year we’ll have Battlefront, the Star Wars game.”
Jorgensen also went on to say that the sequel to Star Wars Battlefront, which we already know is scheduled to arrive around Fall 2017, will be “much bigger” and “much more exciting” than the initial release and will be incorporating more content from Disney’s new slate of Star Wars films.
