Battlefront: Online Still in Development with Slant Six Games?
Whew! Finally, a little bit of news. It’s been super quiet lately on the Star Wars Battlefront, it seems that a lot of people have lost faith that the game is officially dead and will never come out… well not me! I’m going to continue to cover the news and rumors as always because i’m confident we’ll get our Battlefront some day.
Anyway, on the news. According to Connected Consoles, Battlefront Online may be still in development with Slant Six Games, despite the rumors that the game has been scrapped.
Check out what they have to say and it is convincing!
There have been whispers over the past few months revolving around a possible Star Wars Battlefront Online title from SOCOM: Confrontation developer Slant Six, along with the help of LucasArts. On the other hand, we’ve since seen reports that the game may have been canned due to staff layoffs.
Now though, we’ve noticed a new job listing from the studio which could hint at project development continuing. Searching for a new lead designer – which also points to development being started again from scratch – the listing states:
“Slant Six Games is seeking a Lead Designer to be the creative drive behind the making of one of the most exciting AAA franchise console action titles in the industry.”
Of course, this isn’t solid proof that the game is in-fact Battlefront Online, so take it lightly. However, it is a AAA title, so we’re happy.
Big thanks to Connected Consoles!
Like they said, this isn’t confirmed at all, but it does stick some hope back into the hearts of us Battlefront fans!
Long live Battlefront!
