Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is an action shooter video game published by Electronic Arts. After its release, the game received some negative reviews from the fans, which eventually led to a decrease in the overall Player count. However, in a recent report, the EA game reported having got its desired number of players. In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about the recent Player Count Increase.
Battlefront 2 – Post Launch Criticism
In 2017, fans across the world were waiting for Battlefront 2 to arrive. But soon they realised that it was a pay to win (games that allow players to purchase items or ability) which made them criticise it. EA tried everything it could to satisfy the fan base but failed to do so. This led to a decrease in the number of players, and soon it was quite impossible to find a full lobby. EA games removed this feature later.

On 26 January last year, EA games tweeted a thankful note after 19 million fans downloaded the game from the Epic Store. Here is the official tweet from the EA Star Wars handle
Possible Reasons for this Surge
The primary reason for this increase in the Player count was its availability on the Epic Games Store for free. This offer, however, was limited to PC games only. Another reason supporting this flourishing trend is the game’s addition to Steam, which made it more accessible to the players.
Battlefront 2 is now available on PlayStation, Windows and Xbox.
