As the title suggest, Season Two will release this month (with lots of great content) and the info starts next week. It'll be called "The Han Solo Season".

Also, it's May 4th tomorrow, be on the lookout for some other bits that are happening. News on that will be hitting shortly.

    Ey-up! Nice nice, although I did expect proper news to come tomorrow. So we're getting confirmation of Solo now, some news about other stuff tomorrow, then Solo details next week? Noice.

    yay, I can't tell you how not excited I am. I Know it's not your fault and beyond your power, but to put it shortly, this is not what the majority of people were looking forward too. Like, at all. The team knew the fans wanted clone wars and decided to instead capitalize on the cruddy(yes its ****) Han solo movie. I hope this "Tons of content" we're getting is more than just 10-15 bullet points. Or I might just snap(figuratively speaking of).

    - A concerned fan

    I agree 'a lot of content' to these guys lately has been a bunch of skins, so I'm hoping they don't just think a young skin for Han and lando and a third falcon and map is 'a lot'
    I do have my hopes up with this post but it won't be the first time a company has under delivered on something

    Maps, hero skins, and a new mode. That's literally all this movie offers. Considering that Dennis once that said that some seasons won't have any new heroes, I really hope that this is that season because if we get any of these new, forgettable, throwaway characters from this film, then DICE and EA can say goodbye to a lot of the playerbase.

    I understand that this a marketing thing, but it still doesn't make it any easier to accept that this movie is being prioritised over content that players actually want and would be far more lucrative in terms of keeping players in the game.

    Sad thing is that Disney are willing to straight up murder their Star Wars game just to POSSIBLY increase revenue a tiny bit for their new film.

    That's my take away. They are gambling one of their medias for the possibility of a few more players coming to the game and/or watching the movie.
    442nd And 332nd are the BEST

    You all should read my prediction up above. It was on another post that was shut down for this one.

    Well, we can think negatively and predict things all we want. On the other hand the movie may offer some memorable heroes locations and battles etc. That’s what I’m hoping for. Maybe it will be a big pleasant surprise like rogue one

    Obi-Wan is my favourite Star Wars character, so I definitely want him in the game at some point but I'm fine with waiting. I don't get how anyone could be surprised that Season 2 is a Solo season. The movie has been scheduled to be released this month for a couple years now. Of course a Star Wars game is going to help promote a Star Wars movie... shouldn't be a shock to anyone. If the progression system hadn't been revamped, there's a chance that we would have got Clone Wars content before Solo but I'm sure the plan since release of this game was to have a season tied in with the Solo movie.

    On a side note, Ben did confirm on Twitter that there will be something relating to Arcade mode coming this month so I'm excited to see what that is.

    Greedo, Nien numb, Dengar, some rumored boba skin, might just be enough to possibly justify this. 3 Heroes in a single season would be nice, despite being recycled garbage, but I digress. We all know thats not going to happen, lol. Lets not kid ourselves. Not even bothering to watch this solo movie, so stupid. Thats the best they could come up with? Rogue one level trash.

    On a side note, I’ve been playing Republic Commando on Xbox One since it’s been backwards compatibled ( I know, not a word) and it’s been super fun and cured my Clone Wars itch.

    They will follow the same timeline as TLJ season. S2 will debut shortly before the Movie is premiered (May 25), it will run as long as Season 1.

    I for one am excited to see anything new!

    I'm just glad we're finally on the verge of a new season. It shouldn't take this long between them, even if I understand they had to focus elsewhere the past few months.

    Also, I'm excited for Solo season, as well as the movie. It just makes sense to do Han Solo themed content now.

    Is Specialist getting buffed during these new patches? Any new guns?

    Dude, it was worth a try, maybe if they actually knew just how much people hated the Idea of a Han solo season they might have just backed off. Now they played russian roulette and pulled the trigger. Now were talking about getting a comparably and undeniably lame season that lasts for who knows how many months? Will EA milk this for another 2-3? They even said it comes out "this month" not even a time table. It could be late this month. That means June and july are blown? Clone wars in August?! 9 **** months later??? Dude, yes theres going to be massive rage over that.

    I didn't think about that, I'm thinking next week but they could wait till the release of the movie 3 more weeks?
    So as not to spoil anything from the movie of course I think you may be bang on the money here matey

    Sad thing is that Disney are willing to straight up murder their Star Wars game just to POSSIBLY increase revenue a tiny bit for their new film.

    It's the tired old belief of many in Hollywood a film's revenue can be boosted by tying it to other outlets. In other words, they actually believe that having content from the film in this game will encourage more people to see it when the truth is that it's unlikely to make any difference at all. I highly doubt that someone who played the previous game but had no interest in seeing Rogue One had their mind changed because they got to play the Scarif DLC.
    It's the same with commercials, too. Just because you put Solo stuff in an advert for a car doesn't mean that this will increase ticket sales because some person who owns a Renault but doesn't fancy seeing the film will suddenly be like, "cool, that's my car, maybe I'll give the film a chance". It's an outdated notion that people can be persuaded in this way.

    Oh. Maybe Extraction is coming back outside of the Solo season with those Heroes and the 2015 maps. That would certainly make up for the lack of Season 2 news dropping tomorrow.
