SW Battlefront Offline MP Still Investigated But “Promising” Development According To Lead Designer
Possibilities for Star Wars Battlefront Offline MP are still being investigated by DICE, but developments are “promising” according to DICE’s lead designer.
An offline multiplayer mode for Star Wars Battlefront, was first talked about last month when a player asked about the feature on the official SW Battlefront forums. DICE is aware of the request, but the feature has some technical hurdles that need to be solved.

Luckily, the feature hasn’t been forgotten, at least if lead designer, Dennis Brännvall, is to be believed. According Brännvall, he’s answering questions about the feature daily via Twitter.
