Disney and Lucasfilm: Strip EA of its Right to the Star Wars franchise.
This petition had 161 supporters
I am creating this petition to place even more pressure on Disney and Lucasfilm to strip Electronic Arts of any and all rights and access to the Star Wars franchise.
By now we are all aware of the shady and downright greedy business model that EA has been so fond of in recent years. In-game MTX have been a bit of a taboo in the gaming community since their inception, but most gamers don't mind them so long as they are only benign features, such as cosmetic items. But EA and it's money train have gone all in and full steam on their "progression through MTX" business model for Battlefront 2, pushing the gaming community over the edge.
As of the writing of this petition, EA has seen a $3.1billion loss after their stocks fell in the wake of all the backlash. Not to mention that Star Wars Battlefront 2 has seen a 61% DECREASE in physical sales compared to the Battlefront 2015 release.
EA has always been the Boogeyman of the gaming world, but now they are dragging both the Star Wars name as well as Disney into the dirt with them. Honestly, what do you expect from a company known for destroying everything they get their hands on in the name of profits? You have to look no further than Visceral Games or how EA practically destroyed the Mass Effect franchise (some believe intentionally).
Do the right thing and remove EA from all things Star Wars.
