A senior EA boss has announced that there are going to be multiple sequels to Star Wars Battlefront, which came out today.

Speaking at the UBS Global Technology Conference, EA's chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen told the audience that his company plans to make a number of new Battlefront games in future, from different genres and for multiple platforms.

As reported by Gamespot, he said: "We struck a licensing deal with Disney a few years back that's almost 10 years in length."

"The game that comes out tomorrow, Star Wars Battlefront, is a traditional first-person style shooter game."

"Our goal is to make future Battlefront games as well as other style games around the Star Wars franchise, both on mobile as well as console and PC. It's a huge opportunity for us."

EA's Star Wars license with Disney was extended by 10 years in 2013 - so that means we've got at least another seven years of EA-produced Star Wars games ahead of us.

That's either a good or a bad thing, depending on your opinion of EA - but based on positive reviews of the latest Battlefront games from critics and gamers, things are looking good.
