EA Motive's new Star Wars game could be a monetized live game

The next big Star Wars game could be another live game with microtransactions, but it might be more unique than you think.

EA may have just inadvertently telegraphed what's next for Star Wars games, in particular EA Motive's upcoming project. It could end up being another live service game with microtransaction-driven monetization, but with a nice little twist.


EA and DICE just confirmed Battlefront II, the premiere live service Star Wars game that has driven millions in microtransactions and game sales, will be retired tomorrow. This announcement has all sorts of implications for future Star Wars games and could strongly hint EA Motive's new Star Wars game, which is assumed to be the next game in the series, could take its place as a monetized live game.

But before we can fully understand what might be on the horizon, we have to look to both the past and present to uncover a few important points. EA's business model, Disney's approval of EA's Star Wars games, and the disrupted Star Wars timeline all come into play heavily here.

First off, let's start with EA. Things have both changed and remained the same a the billion-dollar titan.
