DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront isn’t exactly a critical favourite right now but that’s not stopping publisher EA from planning ahead. Speaking the UBS Global Technology Conference (via GameSpot) in San Francisco, CFO Blake Jorgensen talked about future Battlefront titles and other games in the franchise.
“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.”
Interestingly, EA also has access to properties like Rogue One which may reference the movies for future games. It will remain to be seen how Star Wars Battlefront fares at sales though.
