Topic: Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Won't Have a Season Pass

Announced over the weekend at Star Wars Celebration, EA and DICE's follow-up to Star Wars Battlefront won't release alongside a Season Pass. Which would be a departure for the studio. In an interview with Mashable, DICE and Star Wars Battlefront II creative director Bernd Diemer stated, "When we looked at the way Battlefront had evolved over its lifetime, with the DLC and everything, we decided, for this type of game, season passes are not the best thing."

Overall, this is definite good news. Season Pass content for online titles tend to be centered around new maps, which always tends to fragment the audience and divide them into the haves and have nots. This doesn't rule out additional paid for DLC content for the game, it just means that EA and DICE's post-release plans for Star Wars Battlefront II will be a little different than what we saw with the original game, or with the more recent Battlefield 1.

Star Wars: Battlefront II is out November 17 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Yeah, Mass Effect doesn't have one either. Of all the companies, I would not have guessed EA would be the first one to start making some ground on moving past season passes, I thought they'd be milking that s*** for as long as they could
