Star Wars Battlefront II Design Director Comments on Grievous’ Debut in the Game


Associate Design Director on Star Wars Battlefront II, Dennis Brännvall, has commented on the possible debut of General Grievous in the near future.

Rumors about Grievous being introduced in Battlefront II surfaced after a 3d model for the villain was found in the game’s closed alpha game files. Various heroes and villains have already been announced for a post-launch debut, but the coughing Kaleesh cyborg general has yet to be confirmed by DICE.

When asked about the cyborg on Twitter, Brännvall didn’t exactly confirm his arrival in Battlefront II, but merely replied with one of Grievous’ signature sounds: “cough”.

While still not officially confirmed, the designer director’s reply implies that Grievous will indeed be coming to the game in the near future.

Star Wars Battlefront II is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. EA and LucasFilm officially announced the release date for the game 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. “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.”
