My understanding is that it would depend on how much the game sells, with lower sellers being quicker to enter the EA/Origin Access vaults. With Battlefield in particular, I would expect them to either have them coincide with Rogue One or the last DLC pack.

EA: Other Publishers Want to Include Their Games in EA Access and Origin Access
Electronic Arts has gone on record several times on the fact that EA Access on Xbox One and the recently introduced Origin Access on PC are quite successful subscription services, and apparently other publishers have taken notice, and would like a slice of the cake, as mentioned by CEO Andrew Wilson during the Q&A Session of the latest investor day.
“Right now we are getting knocks on the door on a very regular basis from other publishers who want to be in EA Access and Origin Access because they see the value of being part of that player network.”
Wilson did not mention whether those knocks on the door will actually result in games from outside EA’s portfolio actually getting introduced as part of its Access subscriptions, but it’s certainly quite promising.
Incidentally, Origin Access
does now have a few non-EA indie games in its vault: specifically, This War of Mine, Banner Saga 1, Torchlight 2, Trine 1 & 2 and Dungeons of Dredmor. So, this is definitely being experimented with.
