While presentations during the EA Play press conference earlier this month suggested fans will be able to enjoy Clone Wars DLC this summer, this roadmap suggests the truly important parts of it will arrive later than expected. That being said, it's nice to know future developments of Star Wars Battlefront 2 have a clear direction and release windows. It should also be noted that today's roadmap is not the final one. DICE promises to fill in the chart with more details as they become available.

In addition to revealing the roadmap to his followers, Walke also promised Battlefront 2's next update will be detailed soon via a Community Transmission blog post. The content will be made available for free shortly thereafter. It's unclear if the update features the new Hero Starfighter mode, or if this is a supplementary patch meant to fix bugs associated with the Han Solo Season.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
