And there it is: EA has officially removed in-game purchases from Star Wars Battlefront 2... For now, anyway. The title's microtransactions were taken offline not too long ago, which got people talking about what the publisher could possibly be planning. Turns out that they're going to be gone for some time.

In a statement, DICE general manager Oskar Gabrielson writes "Sorry we didn't get this right" in regards to the title's terrible loot box-based progression system. "We will now spend more time listening, adjusting, balancing and tuning," it continues. "This means the option to purchase crystals in the game is now offline, and all progression will be earned through gameplay." We're not sure that helps with the grind -- which appears to be a common complaint -- but yes, microtransactions are gone for the time being.

"The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date, only after we've made changes to the game. We'll share more details as we work through this," the post concludes.

So, what's your take on this? Good? Too little, too late? Shoot first in the comments section below.
