DICE has just revealed that this month’s The Battle on Scarif update will be the last for Star Wars Battlefront 2 as attention turns towards an all-new Battlefield game scheduled for 2021.
“The team at DICE is working on the standalone Battlefield 5 update releasing this summer, and continuing their work on delivering Community Games,” EA said in a short statement, while the official blog provided more details on what to expect in tomorrow’s Battlefront 2 update.. “While the studio’s vision for Star Wars Battlefront 2 is now complete with this week’s The Battle on Scarif Update, the servers, in-game challenges, recurring events and game support will continue as the game lives on with players and the community. We’re looking forward to hearing players’ stories for both games, for years to come. Longer term, the studio is focused on the future of Battlefield that we’ll be bringing to players in 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.
