Moore also said that, the upcoming public event, Gamescom, which is open to the public and draws crowds in the hundreds of thousands, will be a pivotal moment for the game. Star Wars Battlefront is expected to be a big seller for EA and the company believes that the game will be able to sell between 9 and 10 million by the end of the first quarter of 2016.
Star Wars Battlefront is to launch November 17th, 2015 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and on PC. Customers who preorder the game will receive a free expansion named The Battle of Jakku.
