Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Will Launch Its Rise Of Skywalker Content Next Month
The November update has also been delayed for EA's massive online shooter.
It seems December will be a huge month for Star Wars: Battlefront II. Community manager Ben Walke has confirmed on Twitter that December will be a "celebration month" for the game, with new content based on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker acting as a headliner. With the film just around the corner, Star Wars fans have plenty to be excited about.
There are no details available just yet regarding what will be included in the Rise of Skywalker update for Battlefront II, but it's a safe bet that it will feature maps or characters from the movie. The Rise of Skywalker hits theatres on December 20, so you can expect the new Battlefront II update to release around then, though no specifics have been announced yet.
Multiple new updates are also coming in December. The first of these will be the update that was previously planned for release in November. A second update will follow later in the month.
Walke clarified that EA has not cut any content, but rather explained that the studio merely shifted dates. He did not, however, give any rationale for the delay of the November update. Another EA Star Wars game, Jedi Fallen Order, launches on November 15, so moving the Battlefront II update to December gives the other game more room to shine.
