EA has loved industrial success with each of its entries within the Star Wars Battlefront collection. Although, each of these video games leaned closely into on-line multiplayer parts. Jedi: Fallen Order was the primary strictly single-player AAA Star Wars journey in a really very long time and we’d not have seen the final of it. It reached different spectacular gross sales milestones, as nicely, reminiscent of turning into the fastest-selling digital launch of any Star Wars recreation and rating inside the prime two of the NPD charts in November and December 2019.
Now, this doesn’t imply Digital Arts might be abandoning its multiplayer or stay service video games. In any case, the corporate remodeled $1 billion from microtransactions in its live-service video games throughout its fiscal third quarter 2020 and notes in its quarterly report that projections for fiscal yr 2021 are primarily based on live-service video games and ongoing assist. It does imply single-player adventures have confirmed themselves to be viable, although.
And if the rumors about Knights of the Previous Republic are true, we may find yourself seeing even extra single-player Star Wars video games?
