Time to start the Star Wars hype train again: Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is happening, and it's coming out in 2017, according to EA Star Wars' official Twitter account. 

We'll get our first look on April 15 during Star Wars Celebration, a convention for all things far, far away.

We've known a Battlefront sequel would be coming for awhile — in fact, rumors are floating around that the sequel will actually have a fleshed-out campaign mode this time around — but we now know exactly when to expect the reveal.
