Star Wars Battlefront 2 updates to cease with all-new Battlefield set for 2021.
It follows recent news that Battlefield 5’s upcoming summer update will be the last for that particular game. While neither game’s multiplayer is going anywhere, the ceasing of updates suggest a concerted effort is being made to ensure the next Battlefield launches on steady footing.
That’s something that can’t be said, of course, for DICE’s recent efforts, with Star Wars Battlefront 2 enduring a famously troubled launch that saw it grab headlines in mainstream press with its loot crates and, on a lesser scale, Battlefield 5 saw the studio occasionally falter as it moved away from the season pass model and offered free map updates at an erratic pace.
While DICE has done sterling work getting both games up to scratch, it’ll be fascinating to see what the studio can achieve on the next generation with a more stable start than it’s been able to traditionally offer.
