Soooo…. After the big announcement for Lucidity, there has been a lot of complaining that it wasn’t Battlefront 3. I know it kind of stinks that they are keeping this secret, but what can we do? I mean in my opinion, they would be silly not to develop the game, there is too much demand for it. I feel that it will be released some day, most likely next year or the year after. It wouldn’t be worth their while to put out such a big title right now with The Old Republic on it’s way as well as Republic Heroes.
All i’m asking is to have faith my fellow Jedi’s and Sith. As some people have pointed out, in the Gametrailers interview with LucasArts president Darrell Rodriguez, kept dodging the question of a next generation console Battlefront. Also in a Elite Squadron questionnaire from TheForce.net they managed to squeak in the following question:
“Last but not least, (and in the �Had to Try� category) the last 2 editions of Star Wars Battlefront have been exclusive to handheld platforms. Do you think handhelds will be the preferred future medium for the Battlefront franchise or can we hope to see a console version again sometime in the future?
The Battlefront team is very proud of the work we have done. It was no small feat getting so much game into both platforms! Both Elite Squadron developers Rebellion (PSP) and nSpace (DS) pulled out all the stops to make sure they delivered a game that would move the Battlefront experience forward. This would not have been possible without one fundamental thing that we share with the fans. We love Star Wars! Enjoy the games!”
Again they seem to dodge the question. Definitely interesting.
