At this point, it's unsure whether the image is a screenshot or just plain concept art for the Battlefront sequel.

The map will be fully unveiled during EA's EA Play livestream event this Saturday. 

The game was officially announced back in April of this year.  “In Star Wars Battlefront II, we all wanted to really capture the essence of being heroic and how in Star Wars, anyone can become a hero,” says Matt Webster, Executive Producer at Criterion said upon the game's announcement. “Whether that’s playing as an iconic character like Rey or Luke, as a front-line trooper or fighter pilot in epic multiplayer battles, or playing through a new Star Wars story that bridges the gap between Star Wars Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you will become a hero in Star Wars Battlefront II.”

“EA has assembled an incredible set of developers to create a Star Wars gaming experience unlike anything fans have ever experienced,” said Douglas Reilly, Senior Director, Digital & Franchise Management. “Star Wars Battlefront II will offer everything players loved about the last instalment, and adds new modes that we know the fans want, including an entirely new story developed in partnership with Lucasfilm.”

Star Wars Battlefront II is scheduled for a release on November 17 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
