Star wars battlefront 2 has been one of the most criticized games of 2017. It became a nightmare for EA due to the fact that the share price of EA reduced by 2.5% on the launch day of Star wars battlefront 2. The reason for such a misfortune was that the gamers did not like the loot box monetization scheme that the game offered. It gave players strong advantage through items purchased in-game with real money.
However, same items can also be purchased by in-game currency for which gamers have to play the game for approximately 40 hours to unlock a single player character. This was highly criticized by people; however, this scheme was removed later due to the loss of $3 billion in stock value of EA since the launch of the game till November 2017.
