EA removes all in-game purchases from Star Wars Battlefront II on the eve of its launch

…as we approach the worldwide launch, it’s clear that many of you feel there are still challenges in the design. We’ve heard the concerns about potentially giving players unfair advantages. And we’ve heard that this is overshadowing an otherwise great game. This was never our intention. Sorry we didn’t get this right.

We hear you loud and clear, so we’re turning off all in-game purchases.

The power of the people!

A huge win for gamers and fans of the franchise as EA, the most hated company in America, does a complete backflip after consumer outrage over in-game purchases.

The next goal… reviving the deeply lamented Amy Hennig helmed, Visceral developed single player Star Wars title.
