Star Wars: Squadrons developer EA Motive said it was "not planning to add more content" after the game's launch back in early October. And yet here we are, roughly six weeks later, with an official post detailing two new updates planned for the coming weeks that will add a new map and two more ships to pilot. We can't complain, of course, but it is a bit of an odd correction course. Still, it's more content for those still playing and that's great.
Next week on 25th November 2020, update 3.0 will add a new map to multiplayer. Named Foster Haven, it's taken from the campaign's prologue mission and will be available in the Fleet Battles and Dogfight modes. The new location will also be accompanied by a long list of fixes and balance changes. Then, in December, another update will add another two Starfighters — those being the B-wing and TIE defender.
Creative director Ian Frazier closes out the post by saying: "Thank you for putting your faith in us, thank you for joining the Squadrons community, and thank you for helping us to make the game even better through all your feedback. And especially, a big thanks to those of you who supported us even before launch. It's because of your backing that we were able to get a bit of a head start on concepting all this cool new stuff. You really did make a difference. Take care, and see you in the stars!"
