No Season Pass For Star Wars: Battlefront II

Bernd Diemer, creative director of Star Wars: Battlefront II, gave a statement to Mashable that the upcoming Star Wars game will not have a season pass and EA is working on “something different” instead.

Diermer did not mention any microtransactions in works, but EA has a very typical business model when it comes to online-based multiplayer games. Paid DLC content is strategically released to keep players engaged and playing longer.

We don’t have a season pass. We decided on that, and it’s one of those difficult decisions because it has so many implications all around. When we looked at the way Battlefront had evolved over its lifetime, with the DLC and everything, we decided, ‘You know what? For this type of game, season passes are not the best thing. We need to [take it apart] and come up with something better.
“While we’re not ready to confirm any live service plans just yet, what we can say is this we heard the feedback from our Battlefront community loud and clear,” the statement said. “We know they want more depth, more progression, and more content. So we’re focused on delivering that in every dimension of Star Wars Battlefront 2. We’ll have more to share about our plans soon.”

EA is no stranger to microtransactions and the company has profited a lot from in-game purchases like FIFA and Madden. At the Morgan Stanley conference, EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen mentions that FIFA has brought in $800 million per year and they wanted to take Star Wars: Battlefront II and make it more like FIFA’s Ultimate Team mode.

If a game does not contain season passes, it normally goes with microtransactions instead. Star Wars: Battlefront II is set to launch on November 17th, 2017 and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
