EA's Battlefront games saw significant criticism between them. Many criticized the first entry for an expensive Season Pass, while Battlefront 2 was riddled with controversy over character costs and loot boxes. However, fan reception for Battlefront 2 has significantly improved since launch, following numerous updates.
There's no word on when Respawn's new Star Wars games are coming out, though rumours suggest Jedi: Fallen Order 2 could arrive later this year. In the meantime, Star Wars Battlefront II is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
