We previously reported on a tweet from the EA Help Twitter account which teased that Luke’s Endor appearance from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi may be on its way to Star Wars Battlefront II, but it would appear that the teases do not stop there. Ben Walke, the Community Manager on Star Wars Battlefront II, teased in a tweet today that the team has a new emote for Darth Maul, which may or may not be on its way to the game in the future.
The statement came from Walke when he was replying to a comment on a Twitter post he had made asking fans which voice line they would like to see added into the game, if they could only have one. One user replied saying, “Just redo Mauls Kenobi line, and we would be good…” Walke replied saying, “We have the “KENOBIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII”, but thought it should be an emote rather than voice line.”
We have the “KENOBIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII”, but thought it should be an emote rather than voice line.

The emote which Walke is referring to is not currently available to players, meaning it appears that DICE is working on new emotes for the game’s heroes and villains behind the scenes. It also stands to reason that if DICE is working on a new emote for Maul, that even more emotes for other characters could be on the way to the game in the future.
Star Wars Battlefront II‘s July update saw the debut of community quests which allow the community to work together in order to earn some exclusive voice lines and victory poses for Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and General Grievous. The Darth Maul community quests experienced some bugs at first, which reset the challenges, but the problem has since been fixed with players being awarded their voice lines and victory poses. The update also fixed various other bugs which were giving players issues as well.
