A recent tweet from an Electronic Arts employee implied that a trailer for Star Wars Battlefront 2 is in development. Might it be finished in time for Celebration Orlando?

Randy Evans has done a great amount of work with Electronic Arts and their DICE division previously, with his credits including various titles in the Mirror’s Edge and Battlefield series, along with – you guessed it – Star Wars Battlefront. Given that DICE has announced that they’re going to take a break from Battlefield for a little while, it appears that all hands are on deck with Battlefront 2. Evans bringing up the Force certainly suggests that this is for a Star Wars project, in any case, but it’s not clear if this trailer is going to be attached to April’s Star Wars Celebration Orlando or if it will be a part of June’s EA Play presentation. Still, given that the opening panel for Celebration Orlando is going to comprehensively cover the Star Wars franchise, it’s entirely possible that a trailer is one of Lucasfilm’s big surprises that they promised.
