It looks like EA knew that the other Star Wars game was not going to happen anytime soon for a while and pushed BF2 into place. The campaign was fine but the online is boring as despite the changes, it feels like a throttled back duplicate of the last one's gameplay to me.

Star Wars Battlefront II was actually always going to release this year.

not invalid points.

but i think most people were thinking of the bs progression system, loot boxes, pay to win controversy though

That should read Star Wars' EA crisis.
EA has sullied the Star Wars franchise and Disney is either guilty of a lack of oversight or is complicit.

Considering they've been accused of using predatory tactics to lure children into online gaming, you'd think Sony would be apprehensive to let that cancerous turd anywhere near their event while they have a huge image problem. Unlikely but here is to hoping!

In other news, what an absolute dire shame that us PS4 fans have no access to EA Access. Woe is me.

Lmfao, despite my hatred of EA, I won't lie that not having EA Access on PS4 kind of sucks.
