Polygon reported that previously, EA announced that "Star Wars: Battlefront 2" will launch between April and December 2017. The first game, which was a reboot of the 2004 series, launched in November 2015 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.

Jorgensen teased that they will most likely feature one Star Wars title every year until 2020. "Star Wars: Battlefront 2" will allegedly feature bigger and better worlds, compare to the first game, and will also be inspired by newer Star Wars films.

"Star Wars Battlefront 2" will most likely feature several similar elements that made its predecessor quite successful. There will most likely be familiar characters from the first game, with the addition of new ones based on the latest "Star Wars" movies.

Fans can also expect missions based on specific events from the saga. "Star Wars: Battlefront 2" is also very likely to feature expansions via DLC after the main launch.
