The people who make Battlefield, just like many other developers across the video game industry, have heard the loot box furore loudly and clearly. The next Battlefield's microtransaction plans remain in flux, as they are in many games until close to release, but it's unlikely they will inspire as much anger as Star Wars: Battlefront II's did. That will be a theme: Based on conversations I've had with developers at a range of major studios lately, nobody wants their game to be remembered for its loot boxes.
