Is Pandemic’s Project X or Y Battlefront 3?
This has been a big question for awhile now and people are still thinking that Pandemic Studios secret Project Y or Project X will be announced as Battlefront 3 and quite honestly i’m starting to believe so myself.
One of my forum members brought some interesting information to the table. Here’s what he had discovered:
“On Pandemic’s site, they have a job listing for a Lead Designer, here: Job Listing
Two interesting things in the description of it:
1)They say that it is an “original IP”. And as we know, Battlefront is an IP originally from Pandemic.
2) (this is the biggest giveaway) In the preferences section, they say:
# XSI familiarity.
# Action genre experience is ideal (Battlefront is an action genre)
But the important thing to note is the XSI familiarity. XSI is a 3d computer graphics application that has only been used in a small number of games, and only two games from Pandemic have used that software, and guess what they are.. Yep, Battlefront I and Battlefront II. (click here to see all games using this software, there’s only 12 (also in case anyone is confused with what Autodesk Softimage is, it is XSI. “In February 2009, Softimage|XSI was rebranded Autodesk Softimage.”)
So I guess this points to further evidence showing that Project Y (or X, can’t remember) on Pandemic’s website could very well be SWBF3.”
Definitely very interesting… hmm.. there’s definitely something very fishy going on…
Let me know your thoughts folks!
