2005's Star Wars Battlefront II is still being updated

Low 'Star Wars' Sales Drive Electronic Arts Downgrade Says Morgan Stanley 2005's Star Wars Battlefront II is still being updated

Star Wars Battlefront II might have been met with controversy right before its release because of EA's monetization schemes; however, analysts say that the game will still manage to pull through in sales despite all of gamers initial concerns regarding the Star Wars Battlefront sequel's in-game purchasing models.

Interestingly, sometime after Jorgensen's statements, the data miners discovered personalization objects among the files of Star Wars: Battlefront II. The recent patch added minor improvements to lobby functionality, Steam usernames being displayed correctly, and more accurate ping calculations. Of course, these mods are not now available on the console versions of the game, but owners of the game on PC may want to keep an eye on the Star Wars Battlefront 2 nexus in the coming months; who knows what paint job Vader will get next?

Wedbush Securities reiterated its outperform rating for Electronic Arts shares, citing the company's strong game pipeline for the next fiscal year. "270MB patch for a 2005 game in 2018?" Notable among those is Destauch's "Darth Vader In Pink".

However, with Double Damage now revealing its own Star Wars space battle project, which was pitched to EA in 2016, we've now got to wonder whether DD could have done an even better job. Not to mention you probably don't want Darth Vader in pink.

The chances of us ever seeing an old school Star Wars space sim again are distressingly low, but at least we have this opportunity to sit back and dream of what might have been.

The reboot of the series in 2014 saw the franchise reborn and last year's Star Wars Battlefront II was heavily criticized for pushing loot boxes on players.

Star Wars: Battlefront II is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
