From Game Informer:
During Electronic Arts' second quarter earnings call, the company signaled that a Star Wars Battlefront sequel should hit next fall.
In the question and answer period of the call, Blake Jorgensen, EA CFO, talked about the various Star Wars titles the company has in the works. He described the timing of the next Star Wars Battlefront title as, "a year from now."
Previously, the company has said a new Battlefront title would appear in 2017, but Jorgensen's comments seem to narrow that a bit.
