Who Thinks Star Wars: Battlefront 3 is Dead? I don’t…
Well for the last couple weeks, it’s been all quite on the western battlefront.. ever since that interview with LucasArts president via Gametrailers, it seemed to silence everything that has been going on with Battlefront 3 over the last few months.. which of course were just rumors as far as most people are concerned.
This brings me to the question… is Battlefront 3 really dead? To be honest.. who knows, there are so many rumors flying around, no one has any idea what to believe. I believe that right at the moment, the game is on hold for now but I do think that it will be developed some day. I still believe they would be very silly not to release a next generation Battlefront.
So give me your opinion.. is Battlefront 3 dead?
Here’s what IGN.com thinks about the subject.
“The death of Star Wars Battlefront III alongside its developer Free Radical at the beginning of 2009 was painful to watch. We’d seen the impressive leaked video (since pulled) of what appeared to be an alpha build of the game. We’d heard from trustworthy sources that the game was nearly complete. And then, like a TIE fighter nailed by a proton torpedo, Free Radical went into a tailspin, eventually crashing and burning. Just like shooting womp rats, eh LucasArts? In an in-depth interview with a former Free Radical employee , we learned that Battlefront III is dead and gone, along with some impressive tech that was apparently rivaled only by that of Free Radical’s other project, Timesplitters 4 (see its status below). The rumor was that Pandemic (now part of EA) picked up the rights. If so, they’re not talking. If ever a game deserved the status ‘flatlined,’ this is it. May the Force be with you, Battlefront III.“
