During the Star Wars Battlefront panel at Celebration Anaheim it was revealed (perhaps accidentally) that a tie-in novel for the game is being written called Twilight Company. (Thanks to Star Wars Underworld for live tweeting it)
Shortly after, this tweet from Alexander Freed confirmed him as the author:
Awesome news! I love me some Star Wars books and this will be a great chance to pull in readers that might not normally be into the novels.
