The Star Wars Battlefront 2 microtransactions have been disabled by EA DICE for now. This has been announced in one of their blog posts.

The blog post said that, “It’s clear that many of you feel there are still challenges in the design. We’ve heard that concerns the concerns about potentially giving players unfair advantages. And we’ve heard that this is overshadowing an otherwise great game. This was never our intention. Sorry we didn’t get this right.”
They further added that the developers will be taking the time to focus on “listening, adjusting, balancing and tuning.”
“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.”
Thank you for that EA DICE!
