It also puts Battlefront II behind the first title in terms of sales during the same period, which isn't something EA wanted for a game they so heavily marketed as a "lesson learnt".
Speaking during today's EA Q3 2018 earnings call, EA's CEO Andrew Wilson and CFO Blake Jorgensen discussed the future of the company's Star Wars games.
Battlefront II's loot box system was removed the night before the game's proper release, after a week of pre-release players becoming increasingly frustrated with the progression system. While the game did under perform, a one million difference isn't that bad especially when you consider how much backlash the game - and the publisher - got for its original vision for microtransactions. When pressed for a time-frame for that, he indicated it would take place: "In the next few months". Given the criticism that Battlefront 2 received at launch, and EA's backtracking on the microtransactions in the game, it's no doubt a factor in the title not reaching sales estimates.
The controversy reportedly hurt relations between EA and Star Wars licensor Disney. However, the inclusion of loot boxes and the concept behind them quickly angered the community, resulting in a lot of negative feedback that EA is obviously still trying to deal with.
If we look back at the last quarter of EA, the companies live services that included optional add-on content made about $787 million. We don't have exact details yet, but many are hoping for the removal of Star Cards, which have been a point of contention since the first alpha tests for the game. He argued that Electronic Arts' plan is "absolutely" to continue to drive and focus and deliver on digital economies and live services. EA said it is expected to drop during fiscal 2020, which means the 2019 calendar year. That's certainly what EA would like us to believe.
