While the tweets and trailer don’t directly mention Star Wars Battlefront II in any way, the reference to the game is quite clear given the recent community backlash. Concerned fans were recently called ‘armchair developers’ by the game’s community manager.

Star Wars Battlefront II is slated for a release this Friday on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Blizzard announced that StarCraft II would go free-to-play during this year’s BlizzCon event.
