Clone Wars DLC says who?

All I keep hearing is 'when is the Clone Wars DLC coming?' and 'I'm quitting if we don't get CW content' etc etc.

Was a CW DLC ever officially confirmed or is this just more uninformed forum speculation? I know there have been subtle hints from Dennis about Droideka's and some data mined content but was/is there anything officially said about an actual CW season? I can't find anything.

AFAIK There is no road map yet so speculation is rife but this specific issue is also causing a lot open hostility towards EA/Dice that seems totally misplaced. Moan at them for the lack of communication, broken promises, sloooow update releases, broken weapons, weak heroes whatever but not rumors.

    When the game released there were files in the game such as Grievous suggesting the next heroes would be Clone wars. In addition to that some tweets/comments by devs suggested it. Though nothing is confirmed the snowball had started rolling. Everyone shall be mightily disappointed when they add bespin and not clone wars stuff in April after the patch next week.
  • Bespin. Another rumor. Jeez :|

    Half of this forum content can be summed up as players crying because rumors started by other players are not true.

  • Speculations. As someone mentioned, General Grievous was datamined, and people drew the conclusion that a Clone Wars DLC was upon us.

  • The reason he was in the files at release is cus they did not finnish him in time for launch, all it means is that at some point when they get him working we will have him. Not that the next season after TLJ will be clone wars as we know the dev's "switched focus" after the backlash at launch.

    I hope only for 1 thing. we get clone wars at some point in games life, don't care if it's before or after OT/ST dlc season's that may or may not come 1st. the game altho it has its flaws and bug's (dc 15le im looking right at you :/ ) its a enjoyable game that any new content (map's,Hero's,ect) are welcome at anytime
  • Like @Octavious said. YouTube people are part of the problem. They will say/do anything to get more views, so instead of listing the several reasons why that skin could have been in the files, they went with the one that would give them the most views. I get so sick of these people acting like they have some inside info. When in reality they don't anymore than the rest of us. SWHQ and BFUPD are some of the worst offenders. One went so far that they used a mod for another game to make it look like they had info.
  • Dennis implied it. In one tweet he said that he gave us hints to the future content. Additionally, his entire Twitter profile is showing PT stuff.

    it's just that the people who think that if season 2 is clone wars get that opinion from the idea that the game will die without a clone wars season.
    Many of the arguments we have about this game would not exist if this was a single player focused game like it should have been since day 1.

    yes clone wars content was hinted & found in the data but that doesn't mean it will be in dlc 2 maybe when they took a visit to lucasfilm they put that on hold for dlc 3 or 4?, also it doesnt make sense having anakin in the game when he is darth vader! the solo movie is in may so i bet its going to be solo content for dlc 2 so until then we have the joy of unlocking luke hoth skin, han hoth skin, leia hoth skin & prog system change!
  • Dennis implied it. In one tweet he said that he gave us hints to the future content. Additionally, his entire Twitter profile is showing PT stuff.

    True but hints on future content don’t mean it will be the next dlc. Personally I’ll be happy with any era.

  • People need to quit reading into things. Some people think that every time he says something that there is some hidden message. If Dennis said "I like Commander Cody" and showed a pic. Within 5 min of hi saying that you would have a flood of threads and Boobtube videos say "Commander Cody is the next Hero"

    People don't want to wait for official news, they just want to run with rumors and hope they are right. I really would like all these Boobtubers to stop spreading misinformation. What they do is worse than what EA/Dice is doing by not saying anything.

    yes mostly the rumours are intensified by the HQ & Updates utube channel's man! "grasping at straws" they are
  • Seriously tho everyone likes clone wars. Reaaally hoping they add rex.

    Here are the six heroes I want in the next dlc (keep in mind @Dice_Firewall said they’re could be more than just two)

    Anakin v dooku
    Obi wan v Grievous
    My boi Captain Rex Vs Cad bane (not with rocket boots, just a improved jump so he’s not op)

    And if they go the extra mile and add ANOTHER season, then
    Wolffe V IG-88

    Cad Bane needs rocket boots, but not as Fast as A jetpack, and Rex can have either a jetpack (Definitely don’t want that) or another ability.

    I know exactly what you're talking about, they didn't. They showed a mod from another game and said, 'This is what clone customisation should look like in BFII'. At no point did they say that it was in any way already in battlefront or confirmed to be coming in that sort of detail.
    But then, you wouldn't know, would you? Because as you yourself said, you 'didn't watch the video, just went and left a nasty comment under it.'
    I'm not even defending them because I'm a fan, I'm not, but your false accusations annoy me tbh.

    As for the original post, I don't think anyone officially confirmed it in any way, but Dennis has used somewhat cryptic responses on Twitter which suggest CW content, such as 'Don't forget the Droidekas!' in response to a question in which the droids in question were not mentioned (I think it was something about ARC trooper reinforcements?).
    Also, lots of people (including myself) just want Clone Wars content. It was (in my view) a major selling point of the game, and there is so many possibilities for future content.

    Wolffe vs IG88 is an odd pairing. I like the clone wars era as much as the next guy but we really dont need wolffe as a hero

    Would fit better with Ackbar vs IG88 or someone else from the OT

    There has been no confirmation of anything. I will just be pleased with more maps and heroes and star cards and weapons... the era they come from is irrelevant to me. I personally doubt the next season will be based on clone wars as the next season will probably be planned to be a movie tie in... we could get clone wars as standalone content. I think a lot of people are going to be upset about not getting what they think they should for next season... I am looking forward to the forum drama!

    I get why Piett, but would rather see Akbar paired against Veers. His helmet and armor would be nicer to see on the field.

    Bossk talking smack to a scared Piett would be funny though.

  • @DrX2345. I am well aware of what I said in the other post and to the YouTube person. I called it click bait. Because that is exactly what it is. Just like another video screen shot that I seen on YouTube today. This one said Leveling up new hero and the screen shot pic had Greedo on it. How is that also not click bait? These people known exactly what they are doing. These people choose to word it in such a way that implies something else. He chose to use a screen shot of the customization screen to imply that he had real info. He could have titled it "if SWBF2 had the customization of Xcom, but he didn't. He knew wording it like that wouldn't get him a fraction of the hits. They don't need people to watch the whole video for it to count. They just need people to start it for credit. From my point of view those tricks are not accusations, but the truth.

    Just like when you see these "DC15 ruins the game" then they show you all these easy kill streaks with it, or use it at choke points. The clip and cut their videos to help their point. Sure the guy is hitting a hero with it, but 5 others were also shooting at the same hero. Yes, I do think it is unbalanced, but it is not as bad as some of these videos show. I am sure that you could do that trick with any weapon in the game if you wanted to make it look busted.
