The massive backlash following Star Wars Battlefront 2 caused EA to removed the microtransaction system, stating that this was a temporary decision until changes could be made. Today the company stated they might not return.

In a statement made through Glixel:

“Clearly we are very focused on listening to the consumer and understanding what the consumer wants and that’s evolving constantly,” EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said. “But we’re working on improving the progression system. We turned the MTX off as an opportunity to work on the progression system inside the game. We’re continuing to do that. I think there’s an update this week and again next week.

“Overtime we’ll address how we will want to bring the MTX either into the game or not and what form we will decide to bring it into.”

Considering that governments have become involved in the loot box system and Disney’s intervention a lot of eyes are on EA. Considering that the studio has been negatively rated based on their actions this year including the closing of Visceral Studios, Mass Effect Andromeda’s release, and the overuse of skill-enhancing microtransactions in their biggest games many gamers have developed a negative opinion of the company.

Recently EA released the latest content update for Star Wars Battlefront 2, The Last Jedi, is now available and adds new weapons, heroes, and more.
