The new Star Wars: Battlefront will have a single player campaign, EA boss Andrew Wilson confirmed during Electronic Arts' quarterly financial conference call. He explained that fans can expect a game bigger than its predecessor with more locations and characters across multiple Star Wars eras.
"Our next Star Wars Battlefront will be even bigger, taking players into more locations and allowing them to play with more heroes and characters across multiple Star Wars eras," said Wilson. "There will be new ways to play, including an all new single-player campaign and much, much more that we are excited to share with our players in the months ahead."
Wilson adds that Electronic Arts knows the first game was well received, considering it a game that "fulfilled people's Star Wars fantasies" in many ways. However, he also acknowledges that fans wanted more, which is why the development team has taken criticism towards the first game to heart.
"The first game was very well received. It was widely regarded as a game that fulfilled people's Star Wars fantasies in ways they could never imagine. But it was also a game where people asked for a lot more, and a lot more depth and a lot more of the greatness of the game kind of embodied.
"This game, again, is going to be in more locations, more game modes, more eras, including a full single-player campaign which is very, very exciting. So, we have every reason to believe we're delivering fans exactly what they're asking for with respect to a Star Wars game."
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is being developed by DICE, Motive and Criterion. The game is set to release this Holiday season.
