EA Indicates Star Wars Battlefront Sequel Coming Next Fall
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.

The analyst's question that Jorgensen replied to was about how EA would financially make up for sales from Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 next year, further implying that the next Battlefront would fall into a similar timeframe.
