Hey everyone,

We wanted to give you a few updates on Star Wars Battlefront II. As you may have seen, last week DICE began its work from home operations in order to best protect the team’s health and well-being.

The Star Wars team have now moved away from our office setup and into our homes.

Work continues on the game but the adjustment from the office environment into our homes has caused some knock-on effects to our workflows. We’re currently streamlining these processes and adapting as we move forward.

As a result of this we have decided to move the release of the Battle on Scarif Update to Mid-April. This is our new target time-frame but as the situation continues to develop, we will keep you posted on any further timing adjustments.

The next update will see Supremacy arrive for the Age of Rebellion. Headlined by the return to the tropical planet of Scarif, the mode will also feature a number of Age of Rebellion locations. We have some updates for Instant Action, including the addition of the Age of Rebellion as well as a new way to play offline.

Both Co-Op and Heroes Vs Villains will be receiving some additional locations and we can confirm that there will be some new hero and villain appearances arriving as well. What fun!

We’ll be bringing you more details on the Battle on Scarif Update in the coming weeks, alongside the full deployment plans as soon as we have things confirmed.

As a reminder we have enabled x2 Exp and there will also be a x3 Exp in-game event March 27-29.

We look forward to seeing you on the battlefront.

May the Force be with you
The Star Wars Battlefront II Team

    I hope this means Luke and Maul skins, but I'm still waiting for that Grievous with cape skin...

  • I knew the update would be delayed. I knew it. Still looking forward to it though.
  • I’m curious to see exactly how Supremacy will play out without a ship phase. It stinks that we have to wait, but I understand.

    There's no way to tell if he was alluding to a Maul skin when he said that. I just made the connection, but unless he verifies it, it's just a guess. But, I'd personally like to see the Solo or robot legs Maul over a hooded Maul, which is what people have been asking for.
    Do you know the difference between an error and a mistake? Anyone can make an error. But that error doesn't become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.

  • It will be new forms to play in IA I want to see how it plays...

    Hoping that be GA offline or a splitscreen mode for IA or more better, both.

    Lol. I had a feeling it might get delayed, but oh well. Still excited for Scarif. And the new hero skins. And I wonder if that "What fun" remark is a nod to Maul finally getting a skin?

    Great to hear, that the upcoming update will be quite big again. The delay is unfortunate but at the same time totally understandable. The only thing, that bummers me, is, that we hear about the delay so late. I wish, we knew earlier.
  • Cannot wait and stay safe everyone
  • Tons of details and the only thing my brain saw was 😱:

    That's annoying I undertand why but still annoying also pretty much confirms no heroes or reinforcements. I think now would have been the perfect time to hint at those if they were coming to get everyone excited even after the delay. The fact you didn't tells me it's just scarif and skins with no other surprises

    wheres Jynnnn?

    The fact they didn't mention heroes at all for me at least anyway pretty much confirms they aren't coming. Which sucks as they should be in the game with scarif and I was hoping they might come as a surprise. But surely dice would have mentioned heroes after the bad news of a delay if they were coming so seems like they arent

    Did you read the CT?
    It says "new hero and villain appearances arriving as well. What fun!"
    Read into that what you will

    Yeah I'm reading that it means new hero skins how does that hint at new heroes though. If jyn and krennic were coming they would have either said or hinted at it by saying 2 new heroes will be arriving. Unless you think jyn will be a hero skjn then he's just teasing multiple skins

    He could very well be, but 'appearance' has several meanings.
    It could mean skins as in 'looks'.
    Or an arrival. I prefer to think it will be both.

    I guess we will wait and 'see'.

    I definitely don't think he's hinting at new heroes it's definitely just multiple hero skins he's referring to. But I would love to be wrong so yeah we will just have to wait and see and with some luck maybe they might still come

    Im not entirely sure why but this doesnt seam to hype me up. The hvv stuff i dont really care much for but normally supremacy stuff would hype me up and before the announcement i was actually more hyped. I guess only receiving news of the delay 2 days before hand wen we are all expecting a full ct to drop is one factor in it, if its delayed by this much they should have known it at least a few days earlier than wen we normally expect a ct.

    Also for me i think its the fact i really dont enjoy playing as the rebels and half my time on supremacy is because we r the rebels. They have reinforcements which are underpowered compared to the empire, much more niche playstyles with the weapons they use so you have to be more in the mood for them and in my opinion just dont look as cool playing as them. I guess i just wish there could have been a new reinforcement which felt powerfull and looked cool to make me excited to play rebels rather than just waiting to play the empire again.

    I was also hoping to find out wat was coming next to be able to build hype on that and really hoping it was going to be a tie in to season 7 so i would be quite gassed about the future even if it wasnt this next update.

    I dont think the devs have done a bad job, theres obviously content that alot of people were asking for. I just wish there was one part i could have got hyped about even if it was in two updates time.

    If it's a Rebels quote of Maul, it could be a Twin Suns skin. I could be wrong but I'd love to have his death clothes as a skin despite his Solo appearance was intriguing (hopefully that plot continues somewhere else like on Disney+).

    I'd love to see a TCW Season 7 skin for him as well.
  • I'd rather have the update released right than released quick so thanks for the update. Can't wait to see the new hero skins. and I really hope we get a more comprehensive look at the update list before too long.

  • Not a surprise. The last drop was actually really good, so I can wait.
  • Will Scarif will be available for Co-Op? I ask because it is the only game mode that I currently play now.

  • Those new Co-Op locations wouldn't happen to be space locations, would they?
  • I'm looking forward to Age of Rebellion Supremacy. Wish they would just release it on existing maps even if Scarif isn't ready.
