If you are a fan of Battlefield, then this news will be disappointing.  If you are a fan of Star Wars Battlefront, then this news will be awesome!  Speaking at the Nasdaq 35th Investor Program earlier today, EA’s chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen told reporters that the companies priority next year would be a new Star Wars Battlefront game.

Speaking at the Nasdaq 35th Investor Program earlier today, Jorgensen stated that EA “won’t have another Battlefield back for a couple of years. Next year we’ll have Battlefront, the Star Wars game.”

It also seems that the new game will focus more on the current state of the Star Wars galaxy featuring content from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Episode 8.

Next year we’ll have the opportunity to leverage more of that content from the new movies and we think that’ll make the opportunity much larger.

Are you going to be playing this game when it hits (supposedly fall of 2017)?  Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!
