Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is now a sport which, broadly talking, individuals like. (When you one way or the other simply dropped in from 2017, boy, we’ve bought rather a lot to speak about.) It was not too long ago given away for free on the Epic Games Store, a giveaway which proved so popular that the servers pretty much went all Death-Star-at-the-end-of-A-New-Hope, and now we all know precisely how many individuals grabbed it.
EA says that over 19 million gamers picked up Battlefront 2 as a part of the promotion. Yeah, individuals like free PC games and all, however that’s a fully absurd variety of gamers to be in for the promotion in only a single week. (For a tough comparability, The Sims 4 has had around 30 million players over its lifetime.) That is, at the very least, a reasonably strong concept of how fashionable issues aside from Fortnite can get on Epic’s launcher.
Regardless of the brand new reputation, EA reaffirms that the sport has already had its “ultimate content material drop”. Final yr, together with that final replace, DICE stated it was moving on from Battlefront in order to focus on the next Battlefield game.
EA is still making Star War games, however beneath the brand new Lucasfilm Video games initiative, Disney is increasing its licensing deal to allow Ubisoft to make a big, open-world Star Wars title.
