EA DICE has today revealed that over 9 million players logged into the beta for Star Wars Battlefront over the last week, this shows the game is already extremely popular ahead of its launch in November.
Senior producer Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir from EA DICE even stated that it was “the single largest beta in the history of EA”.
Ever since we revealed Star Wars Battlefront back in April, we knew the beta would be a huge test for our game. After all, the beta has been one of the most talked about topics around the game over the last six months, and it was exciting (and a little nerve racking if I’m being completely honest) to open it up to the world.
And like Han Solo at the end of A New Hope, we’re glad you showed up. Even more importantly than just showing up, you’ve been spending a lot of time playing, having a great time and leaving us some invaluable feedback, as we continue to tune and balance the game until launch.
On behalf of the team at DICE, and everyone at EA, thank you for playing.
Star Wars Battlefront will launch worldwide on November 17th, 2015.
