Those looking forward to the next major Star Wars Battlefront 2 update, you’ll going to have to wait a bit more. DICE announced that the Star Wars Battlefront 2 The Battle of Scarif has been delayed to mid-April!
This is due to the studio’s new work from home initiative all brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. DICE has announced this a few weeks ago where it also mentioned that short delays will be coming to Battlefield 5’s updates.
Check out the full announcement made by DICE to the community below:
We wanted to give you a few updates on Star Wars Battlefront II. As you may have seen, last week DICE began its work from home operations in order to best protect the team’s health and well-being.
The Star Wars team have now moved away from our office setup and into our homes.
Work continues on the game but the adjustment from the office environment into our homes has caused some knock-on effects to our workflows. We’re currently streamlining these processes and adapting as we move forward.
As a result of this we have decided to move the release of the Battle on Scarif Update to Mid-April. This is our new target time-frame but as the situation continues to develop, we will keep you posted on any further timing adjustments.
The next update will see Supremacy arrive for the Age of Rebellion. Headlined by the return to the tropical planet of Scarif, the mode will also feature a number of Age of Rebellion locations. We have some updates for Instant Action, including the addition of the Age of Rebellion as well as a new way to play offline.
Both Co-Op and Heroes Vs Villains will be receiving some additional locations and we can confirm that there will be some new hero and villain appearances arriving as well. What fun!
We’ll be bringing you more details on the Battle on Scarif Update in the coming weeks, alongside the full deployment plans as soon as we have things confirmed.
As a reminder we have enabled x2 Exp and there will also be a x3 Exp in-game event March 27-29.
We look forward to seeing you on the battlefront.
May the Force be with you
The Star Wars Battlefront II Team
