The Writers for Star Wars Battlefront II Have Officially Been Revealed for Upcoming Campaign
As fans prepare for the upcoming release of Star Wars Battlefront II, and updates continue to drop about the upcoming game, developers have recently revealed who will be writing the story for the upcoming campaign. According to game director Mark Thompson, the two individuals chosen to pen the story for this title are none other than Walt Williams and Mitch Dyer. For those who played Spec Ops: The Line, Williams’ work should be well-received, considering he wrote the story for that beloved title. Dyer, on the other hand, is a former IGN video game editor, whose experience will definitely be a major asset to the story’s development.
According to an interview with Glixel, Thompson has faith in the two writers to deliver a powerful story to gamers everywhere, as Williams and Dyer are both “voracious Star Wars fans with encyclopedic knowledge” of the franchise and its stories. This is definitely beneficial to building an intriguing plot, considering that Battlefront II will be told from the point of view of an Empire Soldier named Iden Versio. “Between the original trilogy and the new trilogy, there were stories starting to be published [as fiction], but no ‘visual’ storytelling,” Thompson stated in the interview. “There wasn’t anything visual or interactive that had been done in that space. That seemed like a good place for us to do something different and break new ground.”
As gamers prepare for the upcoming tale delivered by these two Star Wars experts, the teaser trailer for the title can be seen here. To keep up-to-date on the latest news for Battlefront II, check back with Don’t Feed the Gamers for developing stories on Star Wars Battlefront II!
