DICE: No, Battlefront Content Won't Be "Held Back" For DLC
It's a common belief that developers hold back content for premium DLC.
However, in my experience talking with developers, it's almost never true. There's a reason all designers are adamant about doing no such thing; as gamers themselves, they despise the idea.
DICE is no different. Assistant producer Jesper Nielsen addressed such concerns regarding the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront: No content will be "held back" so they can charge for it later, as Nielsen made clear at Reddit:
"If you think there's anything we're not including in the game to save it for DLC, I can tell you you're 100 percent wrong."
And he added:
"In this project, I've never heard anyone say, 'Let's not do this for launch so we can do it as DLC instead'. Ever."
It won't stop the conspiracy theories because gamers love such nonsense, but at least the statement is made. You can choose to believe it or not, I suppose.
Star Wars: Battlefront, the new multiplayer-oriented shooter, will release on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
