First images of Battlefront Online? Perhaps…
Thanks to our loyal forum member, “Wenis”, we have a little bit of hope still of getting our Battlefront game.
On January 28th, Kotaku.com reported that Battlefront: Online was in pre-production by Slant Six Games and Lucasarts.
“The game, for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, is currently being worked on by both Lucasarts and Slant Six Games, the studio responsible for SOCOM Confrontation and SOCOM Fire Team Bravo 3.”
Our friend Wenis has dug up a profile of a former Slant Six Games employee (left about 3 months ago) with some interesting Star Wars renderings among his profile.
“I found the LinkedIN page of a former Slant 6 employee (it says he left about 3 months ago). Interestingly in his work experience, he said he worked on Socom Confrontation as well as a ‘new engine for unannounced title’. That unannounced title could be Socom Fire Team Bravo 3 for PSP which just came out, but it also could be POSSIBLY SWBFOnline.
Anyways, now to the real topic. On the LinkedIN page I found a link to his website, here. And there is a gallery of 9 pictures, and one of them showed a model of R2D2 and the other showed a TIE fighter. Heres the images:
In no way are these images confirmed with any kind of Star Wars game, but it does give us some hope in the future! I know lately everyone has been saying they’ve lost all hope in that Battlefront 3 is being developed, but I still believe we’ll get it…. eventually!
Special thanks to, “Wenis”! Thanks for the great work!
False alarm, I had emailed Erik at the time of making this post and asked him about them, he just got back to me:
Sorry, but those screenshots are just assets I pulled off of Google’s 3D Warehouse for a toy renderer to teach myself a few things. I’d appreciate you taking down the story to avoid any confusion.
Be sure to check out Erik’s profile anyway, he does some great work!
