Star Wars Battlefront will continue to be a long time ago

, | News

The world loves Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The movie shattered box office records over the holiday weekend and people young and old can’t seem to get enough of the return to classic Star Wars sensibility. Unfortunately for fans of the movie looking forward to recreating some of those epic moments in Electronic Arts’ Star Wars Battlefront, the publisher confirmed that there are no plans to include the latest movie’s content into any future DLC beyond the free Battle of Jakku map that was released in early December. According to EA, they are “focusing on the original trilogy for this release of Star Wars Battlefront” in response to inquiries regarding the newest movie’s content.

The publisher previously announced that Star Wars Battlefront will get four more packs of DLC content in 2016 as part of the season pass. These DLC installments will include new maps, heroes, and equipment, but apparently none of it will be from the seventh movie. It’s not surprising that the future content of the game would continue to adhere to the original trilogy designs rather than incorporating the new movie’s assets since that would require more resources to produce. Sorry, Finn. This is not the game you’re looking for.
