Brace Yourselves, Battlefront II's Microtransactions Are Coming Back

Electronic Arts has revealed the obvious: Star Wars Battlefront II didn't sell as well as they had hoped.

"This was definitely a learning opportunity", he said. The sales number is heavily down from 14 million copies sold during its launch of Star Wars: Battlefront in 2015. Much more Star Wars is on the way, so you'll want to make sure you keep it locked to Mammoth Gamers for all things Star Wars! We must always build on a foundation of player choice. Having made adjustments based on sentiment and community data coming out of the beta and early trials, we ultimately made the decision to pull in-game purchases out of the game prior to launch. At a point where we [decide] we have the right model for our players and our global community, I have no doubt we will get the support of Disney.

So it sounds like everything was changed based directly from fan feedback which is encouraging for fans of the Star Wars Battlefront II series.

EA confirmed to WSJ that Battlefront II shipped 9 million copies during its launch quarter.

On Tuesday, Eggert told Kelly she was still weighing her options. "I don't know what they're saying", Baio said. Their comments made Robach question Baio as to why they would also be lying.

In other words, EA knew to play on the weak-willed to compensate on a title that would sell less, taking advantage of MTX services in other games. Digital net bookings were $1.23 billion, up 12 percent over last year, with most of that money coming from those all-important live services, which were up a whopping 39 percent year on year.

"We remain committed to the franchise, the team is working diligently on new content and live updates", said Wilson.

During the call, they talked a little more about what they are thinking about microtransactions. The Battlefield universe will grow this year with our next Battlefield title, captivating longtime fans and new players alike, and adding to our Battlefield service where players can move seamlessly with their friends.

EA forecast revenue of $1.23 billion (roughly Rs. 7,800 crores) for the current quarter, topping Wall Street's expectations of $1.18 billion (roughly Rs. 7,500 crores). The game effectively personified the video game loot box problem, with Battlefront 2 effectively blending the game's microtransaction and progression systems together with an element of chance. Wilson mentioned that "we shouldn't believe everything that we read in the press".
