If you’re a Star Wars Battlefront II player, then chances are, you’re not feeling particularly well right now regarding the game. Aside from the lac of communication from EA & DICE in terms of post-launch support, some of the expected content that should have been released already is still MIA.
With Battlefront II being developed by DICE, and the studio’s upcoming game, Battlefield V, set to hit this October, some gamers have been wondering whether BFV will meet the same fate as BFII. Over on Twitter, David Sirland, who’s the Multiplayer Producer on Battlefield V, was asked by a fan regarding post-launch content, and if BFV “will be another SWBF2.”
Did this happen with Bf4 and that launch? No, won't happen this time either (irregardless of monetary model / premium). BF is not the same franchise, not a license based one and this is what, number 15 in the running? Chill.

For context: Sirland was part of the Battlefield 1 live team that delivered fantastic post-launch content to the shooter after the main DICE team has moved on to other projects. Hence, why he referenced BF4 and not Battlefield 1, or the other Battlefield titles.
In case you’re wondering if you should be worried on how the game’s shaping up, don’t, as the still-in-development shooter even won the “Best Multiplayer” award at gamescom!

I’d say a big congratulations are in order to DICE, no?
