    The Star Wars never end: Battlefront sequel coming in 2017
    EA spills its upcoming schedule - and Titanfall 2 is out this

    EA says that Star Wars Battlefront is driving their profits.
    And that's exactly why we're getting a sequel next year.

    Electronic Arts confirmed the news during an investor call
    late last night, confirming that DICE's Battlefront sequel
    will release sometime in the 2017 calendar year. Star Wars
    Battlefront has shipped more than 14 million copies since
    November, and DICE has three more add-on packs coming between
    now and early 2017.

    It's not the only Star Wars game in development at EA, of
    course: Visceral Games is making an action-adventure game
    that we now know will release in 2018, and it's headed up by
    creative director Amy Hennig, who formerly oversaw the
    Uncharted series.

    EA says they'll "most likely have one Star Wars title a year
    for the next three of four years," according to chief
    financial officer Blake Jorgensen. That probably means that
    Respawn Entertainment's newly announced Star Wars game will
    probably come in 2019, which makes sense given that
    development is still super early.
