The launch of Episode 9 increases the number of players


of André Linken
The theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode 9 also has an impact on the multiplayer shooter Star Wars Battlefront 2. As the responsible developer studio DICE has announced, the number of players has increased significantly in recent days.

While the recently launched movie Star Wars: Episode 9 – The Rise of Skywalker continues to divide the spirits, there are now even effects on the gaming industry. This is shown not least by a current tweet from Dennis Brännvall, who is employed as a franchise design director at the developer studio DICE. In it he reports of enormously increasing player numbers in the past in the multiplayer shooter Star Wars Battlefront 2.

"Funny detail, we are currently above the weekly number of players until January 2018. It is not quite up to the launch numbers, but it is still very impressive."

Read tip: This is what the Celebration Edition of Star Wars Battlefront 2 offers

Accordingly, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is bustling (buy now for € 17.99) currently as many players as in almost two years. That should surely be related to the theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode 9 – The Rise of Skywalker. DICE has also recently released a major update for Battlefront 2 that includes some content from Episode 9 – including the characters Finn, Rey and Kylo Ren. A certain suction effect should therefore not be dismissed out of hand.

Incidentally, DICE recently announced that this was not the last content for Star Wars Battlefront 2. There are already plans for the first months of 2020. For example, "Total Domination" will be available for the sequel trilogy in January of next year. New content is also planned for February and March, but the team only wants to report on this shortly.
