The company may be known for its nefarious practices and half-baked goods, but some credit has to be given to EA for being so forthcoming about its intentions with Star Wars: Battlefront.

Chief of EA Studios, Patrick Soderlund recently revealed that Battlefront didn’t have a single player campaign – leading to a backlash from gamers – is because the developer wanted to rush its release to be concurrent with that of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Landing alongside the long-awaited film would allow the game to “get the strongest possible impact”, which it has evidently done.

With a whole lot of meat missing from Battlefront, it still managed to rack up over 14 million sales, selling at a price gamers would typically pay for full games that are complete with a proper single player campaign.

But EA may not be that evil, as the sequel for Battlefront is already in the pipeline and is slated for a 2017 release. This could only mean that the developer is working on a full-fledged single player story.

We could also expect more on the multiplayer side of things, as the sequel is going to incorporate content from new Star Wars silver screen titles.

Or, so they can charge full price for 2 half games….

How are they not evil? What a stupid article and idiotic conclusion…

They sold a half completed game for full price…banking on star wars name.

The only way making a new star wars game would be okay to the fans is if they gave it away for free…which they won’t do, because the are the worst kind of company.

Let’s mark this site as bullshit and never return.

Absolute nonsense. They didn’t deliver a full game, the ‘heroes’ are pretty much cameo characters, using skins already in the game. I feel for those that paid for season pass, it’s complete robbery. And let’s not talk about how they crippled the game by nerfing it to Hell. So disappointed, could have been good. But now we’ll get half a star wars game every year…wish EA would take lessons from the Witcher folks, they deliver.
