Star Wars Battlefront 2 Sold Worse Than EA Expected

Although the games have generally followed a two-year development cycle, with Star Wars Battlefront 2 being released two years after Star Wars Battlefront, it seems that EA is much more uncertain about its release plans for the next game.
EA hasn't confirmed whether or not they will make any sweeping changes to Battlefront II's loot box system beyond the price reductions they implemented prior to taking microtransactions offline. The sales number is heavily down from 14 million copies sold during its launch of Star Wars:Battlefront in 2015.
It turns out that controversy is not good for game sales, with EA telling the Wall Street Journal that the game has only sold nine million copies. So it is a big possibility that we will have to wait a little bit more before we can get more information.
Star Wars: Battlefront II missed the sales targets publisher EA set for it, which could mean an early return for the game's controversial, now disabled microtransactions system.
The backlash against EA's Star Wars Battlefront 2 was arguably the biggest gaming story of past year, even hitting mainstream press, being the talk of governments around the globe, and fundamentally shifting the conversation on loot boxes or anything that might constitute gambling within a game. Digital sales keep growing compared to retail (37% - 63%), Jorgensen added.

Did you boycott Battlefront II? "We're committed to continually working with our players to deliver the right experience in each of our games and live services".

This means that the distributor's objective is to debut the game between April 1, 2019, and March 31, 2020; however, there is always the possibility of a delay. Because of this, "exact timing" for Battlefront 3 hasn't been decided.
