In addition, Jorgensen said that Battlefront II will re-introduce micro-transactions "in the next few months." despite a potential uproar from fans. EA removed micro-transactions from Battlefront II prior to the game's public release in the wake of potential boycott from the game's passionate community. Moreover, EA came under heavy criticism for allowing loot boxes to remain in the game, despite concerns being raised during the game's open beta.
"Going forward, we believe that live services that include optional digital monetization, when done right, provide a very important element of choice that can extend and enhance the experience in our games," EA said. "We're committed to continually working with our players to deliver the right experience in each of our games and live services."
Furthermore, EA did add that their efforts to make Battlefront II a game that keeps players coming back has been successful. This statement does seem to have some truth as, Battlefront II players logged twice as much play time as the 2015 Battlefront game.
