DICE has been using the Battlelog system for its games in the Battlefield series for some time now so many wondered if the same system would be used in the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront. However, we now know that this won't be the case as a DICE producer has confirmed that a new system will be used instead.
Writing on NeoGAF, DICE Producer, Jesper Nielsen said: “While Uprise has been doing Battlelog, does that automatically mean that we will do Battlelog for Star Wars Battlefront? No, it won't. That can only be an assumption, and I can tell you, no, there won't be Battlelog for Star Wars: Battlefront.”
For those out of the loop, Battlelog is the system used for multiplayer in the Battlefield games. On the PC, Battlelog is accessed from within the browser, rather than from in the game, which can be quite confusing for newcomers.
The system built for Battlefront is being handled by Uprising, the same company behind the Battlelog but according to another DICE employee on Reddit, Battlefront's system will be built from scratch. We don't know if it will resemble the traditional Battlelog at all, or if it will be browser-based on the PC.

KitGuru Says: I'm personally not a big fan of how Battlelog currently works, I would much prefer a traditional server browser in-game. Although I might be in the minority, what do you guys think of Battlelog? Would you mind seeing something similar in Star Wars Battlefront later this year?
