You might want to wait ’til The Last Jedi to buy Battlefront 2

EA said it’s likely to discount Star Wars Battlefront 2 at the time Star Wars: The Last Jedi heads to theatres.

With Battlefront 2 out a month before the next film, EA’s Blake Jorgensen said the publisher would likely offer a deal during a recent earnings call (via Seeking Alpha).

“We will most likely discount the game like we did last time around the movie launch,” he said.

“Maybe you’ll even see some selective discounts around the holidays, either Thanksgiving or Christmas. That’s the way the games business always has worked. And so if you see the title on discount, don’t read anything into that other than the fact that that’s the way you sell games in the holidays.”

Holidays or not, a little patience may reap some saved hard earned. Your call.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 17 November. The Last Jedi heads to theatres in December.
