Star Wars: Battlefront has just launched and already we are hearing that a sequel could be coming. EA CFO Blake Jorgensen explained that EA’s 10-year licensing deal with Star Wars owner Disney will result in multiple Battlefront games, as well as others in different genres, planned to launch for both console, mobile, and PC.
“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,” Jorgensen said about Battlefront, which launches for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 17. “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.”
EA has no plans to to make movie tie-ins.
