A lot of gamers were hoping that EA would unveil some new details or even a trailer for Visceral’s new Star Wars game during yesterday’s EA PLAY event. However, it appears that this new Star Wars game will not be present at all at E3 2017.
When asked whether gamers would get a glimpse at this new Star Wars game during E3 2017, the game’s creative director, Amy Hennig, claimed that 2017 is the year of Battlefront 2, suggesting that this new Star Wars game will be absent from this gaming event.
It's #Battlefront2's year – very proud of our friends at DICE and Motive! We're still hard at work on our game, though, have no fear… 🙂

From what we know so far, this new Star Wars game will be released will feature an original Star Wars story with new characters, new locations and creatures.
EA plans to release this game in 2018, though – and given the fact that we haven’t heard anything about it yet – it may slip to 2019!
