The Road Ahead - Roadmap Not Necessary

EA Play will have some surprises in store for us regarding reveals, and I think people are starting to come around to the idea that will get some Season 3 news at EA Play. We won't be getting an official roadmap, and I don't think that it's the end of the world if we don't. Improved communication is something that the team is working hard to achieve, and it's something that the community needs and deserves. But we don't need a roadmap. Based on all that I've heard, seen, and read, including tips and winks for Devs, game changers, and play testers—not to mention a healthy dose of deductive reasoning—The Road Ahead for the next 6 months is actually quite clear.

Beyond this, I think completely up in the air and will be largely based on the reaction of the community to Season 3 and the purchasing of Emotes/Skins/Victory Poses.

Believe it. Don't. That's all cool... I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe. There are plenty of reasons to doubt everything that you read when it comes to leaks and the like. Everything is so fluid that it's tough to pinpoint some exact details, and I'm not claiming that this is THE way it will go down. Just a very likely path.

So if all goes well...

    Sounds good, just hope dz/cargo will be permanent modes and not temps. Also the addition of private matches is huge imo, hope thats on the their list sooner rather than later.
  • Drop Zone and Cargo will start as Temp modes, then would eventually be added to the Operations rotation. Everything in Operations will be together until Hunt has enough for its own playlist.
  • I'm going to choose to be optimistic and say I hope you are right! This is absolutely possible.

    It is definitely possible. Maybe it's not 100% accurate, but this is more than just wishful thinking or fun speculation. The community needs to stay positive. A lot of great things are coming our way if we don't torpedo the game before we get there.

    The negativity that seems to be prevalent is not helping the situation. Stay positive! May the Force Be With You!

    They finally have a decent foundation to work with, they just need to build the house on top of it now.

  • You basically told EA how to win. Let's see if they are watching.

    Wow that's a lot of wishful thinking. If you expect half that, then all will definitely not "go well". This game already has one foot in the grave. I'd be surprised if we got 2 more heroes/1 new map (beyond the Solo season), period. I also expect them to continue to ignore Starfighter Assault completely.

    I'm seeing us getting new Solo and Lando skins (oh, and Maul), MAYBE one new (non-SA of course) map, and IF we're lucky, a few more recycled 2015 maps, and any other assets they can crib from that (heads, skins, etc).

    Actually no, we're definitely getting more (probably recycled) skins, cos they're itching to sell stuff

  • It should be Mace and Jango.

    Give me an Old Luke skin, and we will be best friends. He is the only one I plan on buying with real $. :-)

  • I approve of this message
  • I like this very much. It's the spark of hope that will light the fire of the barbecue of good times and perfectly seasoned steaks that will serve the many plates of the guests gathered around the patio in the backyard that is Battlefront 2!!

    I would prefer Mace and Jango to Padme and Jango as well. I don't think Mace has the traction that Padme has... Besides I think Padme and Jango have been in the works/plans for a while now.

    That's exactly right... You don't rebuild the framework unless you plan on giving it a fair chance to sink or swim on its own. They aren't walking away from this game. It's Star Wars. There a lot of money to be made. If they walk away, they screw themselves. That won't happen.

  • Too bad they let the game die before doing anything about it..too late
