There Might Be No DLC Season Pass For ‘Star Wars: Battlefront 2’; Something Else Might Come Instead

"Star Wars: Battlefront 2" might not come with a DLC Season Pass as noted by Bernd Diemer, the game's creative director. However, they may have something a bit different.

Bernd Diemer spoke with Mashable and said outright that "Star Wars: Battlefront 2" will not have a season pass, similar with "Mass Effect: Andromeda" and "Titanfall 2." According to him, they want to avoid segmenting their community.

In a nutshell, they want to keep the community intact long after the game has been released. They seemingly want to avoid what happened with the 2015 "Battlefront" and its DLC released through the Season Pass.

For those players who didn't own an extra content, it meant that they can't play with the game's full community base. Thus, it will be difficult finding matches.

However, a day after Mashable's interview, EA seems like they weren't that ready in revealing any information as they asked to withhold a few confirmation. Instead, EA sent a statement in an attempt to clarify what Diemer said.

"While we're not ready to confirm any live service plans just yet, what we can say is this we heard the feedback from our Battlefront community loud and clear. We know they want more depth, more progression, and more content. So we're focused on delivering that in every dimension of Star Wars Battlefront II. We'll have more to share about our plans soon." 

Some form of its DLC could be available as the studio has previously announced that the deluxe edition has been stacked with come-ons of Kylo Ren and Rey character skins. There could also still be premium maps or characters or some form.

Whatever decision EA comes up with, we will know more about it when "Star Wars: Battlefront 2" launches this November. In the meantime, check out the trailer of the highly anticipated sequel below.
