EA’s Jorgensen says Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is already in the planning stages
Massive franchises are very important to business side of Electronic Arts, so it seemed like a natural fit when the megapublisher signed a deal with Disney to create multiple games that take place in that far, far away galaxy. In addition to Star Wars: Battlefront, which was released earlier this week, EA’s Visceral Games is hard at work on another Star Wars game that’ll likely launch sometime next year.
But we might not have to wait that long for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 to be released. Or Battlefront 3, for that matter. Speaking at the UBS Global Technology Conference in San Francisco earlier this week, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said the publisher will likely release multiple Battlefront games as part of the Disney deal:
“It’s a big effort for us, and I don’t think there’s a human being in the world who hasn’t heard of the Star Wars movie coming. And so, [it’s a] great opportunity. We struck a licensing deal with Disney a few years back that’s almost ten years in length. The game that comes out tomorrow, Star Wars: Battlefront, is a traditional first-person style shooter game. Our goal is to make future Battlefront games as well as other style games around the Star Wars franchise, both on mobile as well as console and PC. It’s a huge opportunity for us.”
Jorgensen later reiterated that EA still isn’t interested in creating adaptations of the upcoming Star Wars films:
“The beauty of the Star Wars franchise is it’s almost unlimited in what you can do with it. We know Disney has done a great job with other franchises and we believe they’ll do the same with Star Wars over time in delivering new worlds, new characters, new vehicles, all the things that make great video games. Our goal is not to make video games directly about the movies, it’s to use the IP in the movie to make great, exciting games.”
While we don’t when Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will make its debut, it’s widely believed that Visceral’s Star Wars game will star Han Solo.
