Star Wars: Battlefront 3 – Rebellion’s looks good for Battlefront 3 Deal
Some more interesting news or maybe even a rumor.. who knows! But according to CVG, Rebellion is a good position to take the deal on the rumored upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront 3. After hearing a little while ago that Pandemic does not have the Battlefront 3 deal, it looks like we’ve gotten a whiff of who may have the contract. That would be sweet.
Here’s the news:
British developer Rebellion is now the clear favourite to make a development deal with LucasArts for the next Star Wars Battlefront game.
Earlier this week it was confirmed that Pandemic Studios, which developed the first two Battlefront games, is not working on the next title.
As Free Radical fell into administration back in December it transpired that the studio had lost its contract to develop the next Star Wars Battlefront game. Since then, Pandemic and Rebellion have sat in the spotlight as the two most likely studios to pick up the contract.
Yet Pandemic’s community manager Mathew Everett has removed the Californian developer from the equation.
“As of right now I can say Battlefront 3 is not currently at Pandemic,” he said, acting as administrator on the official Pandemic forums. “While I know the title seems to be up in the air from all the buzz around the web, LucasArts will be the only one knowing where the title is at right now.”
Rebellion, which worked on a PSP edition of Battlefront, is now the frontrunner in a proposed development deal., yet no such deal has been announced yet.
Rebellion was unable to return Edge’s calls at the time of writing.
