Star Wars Battlefront 2 will very likely not have a Conquest game mode

It was revealed in May that Electronic Arts (EA) will release Star Wars Battlefront 2 next year, as Star Wars Battlefront was an enormous success for the publisher and early this month, it was confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront 2 would feature a single-player campaign.

Star Wars Battlefront is definitely a fun game to play, but one thing that some fans (including myself) of Battlefield and the old Battlefront titles didn’t like is that the 2015 Star Wars Battlefront does not have the classic Conquest game mode.

A recent fan-created poll on Twitter asked: “Would you want Conquest in Star Wars Battlefront II?” with 86% of voters choosing “Yes! Definitely” as their answer. The creator of the poll, Nathan(SWBF)Byrne, brought it to the attention of Dennis Brännvall, an Associate Design Director at EA DICE, who is currently working on Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Unfortunately for fans of the Conquest game mode, Mr. Brännvall had some bad news, stating that: “I don't think we'll go that far into our other franchise but there's certainly things to learn from both” - Source

Even though a classic Conquest mode looks to be off the table, it is important to remember that Star Wars Battlefront does have a Supremacy mode, which could be, in some ways, compared to Conquest.

EA DICE does compare Supremacy mode to Conquest mode in a sense, stating that: “Supremacy is a game mode that will excite fans of the Conquest mode from Battlefield. That said, we’ve made several tweaks to improve the formula.” - Source

Even though it is comparable in some ways, it never really felt like pure Conquest to me and clearly it didn’t to a lot of other fans as well. However, we don’t know how Supremacy will play out in Star Wars Battlefront 2, so there is always hope that it could have a little more of that classic Conquest feeling.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will release on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in “Fall 2017”.
