Next Star Wars Battlefront Game Will Appear at EA Play Event

From June 10 - 12, players attending in Hollywood can say they shot first in next Star Wars Battlefront

In an announcement today from EA Play on their upcoming event, the anticipated Star Wars Battlefront 2 will finally be revealed, this comes after clues to development being left by the devs for the past several months. While some have anticipated the official release will be around December of 2017, this look will help to reveal in-game questions -- such as the desire for more planets and maps, heroes/villains, and the addition of the Clone Wars era.

Until now, the devs have been pretty quiet on the actual progress of the game, leaving various tweets. The most notable and recent by senior media/video editor for EA, Randy Evans, in February:

While the event makes no promise of a Star Wars trailer -- direct game play would be good, especially after the promise to incorporate "More eras," and "bigger and better worlds" by EA CFO Blake Jorgensen on two separate occasions.

For those planning, or who wish to attend, the event, tickets go on sale April 20, 2017 at 9:00 am PST. EA will also be unveiling other games during the three day event, but please EA, leave out Jar Jar.
