Star Wars Battlefront 2 Is Written By Spec Ops: The Line's Writer And An Ex-IGN Reporter

Star Wars Battlefront 2, which was officially announced last weekend, will give fans what they have wanted for two years now: Mitch Dyer. Also, a single-player campaign.

To write this next Battlefront (not to be confused with the other Star Wars Battlefront 2), EA hired Walt Williams, best known for his work writing the critically lauded shooter Spec Ops: The Line, as well as Dyer, a former reporter for IGN (and friend of mine) who now works for EA Motive in Montreal.

EA Motive, if you're not familiar, is a new-ish studio founded by former Assassin's Creed producer Jade Raymond to help work on Star Wars games including this one and another, more mysterious game, developed by Visceral and helmed by former Uncharted director Amy Hennig.

This is an interesting step for the franchise, signalling that the developers of Star Wars Battlefront 2 are interested in cultivating a proper story rather than stringing together some cool missions and calling it a day. There's no way to know whether Battlefront 2's campaign will be any good until we've played it — November 17! — but it's safe to assume it will involve white phosphorus.

Fun fact: Star Wars Battlefront 2 is the first single-player Star Wars game since the 2012 masterpiece Kinect Star Wars, which brought us this gem:

    Funny, I thought what fans wanted was a Battlefront game that at least had the same amount of content that Battlefront 2 had on release.

      Or you know not being ridiculously casual to the point of it being a snooze fest.

    oh so its going to be another over rated game with a shit story that has a "twist" thats a complete cop out but if you dont like then you're just a stupid idiot who is to dumb to see its true greatness.

    Far Cry 3 was the same as Spec Ops, but at least it had excellent gameplay and Vass's preformance was enough to ignore the shit story

    That dance game....What an unmitigated shitload of fuck

    The games not out yet but I'm giving it a 6.5 out of ten.

    white phosphorus :)

      This is your weekly reminder that you did that, and that you are a horrible person.
