LucasArts Developing Unannounced Project… Battlefront 3?
Some rumors have surfaced over the last few days as well as the fact that Ubisoft’s creative director Clint Hocking teamed up with LucasArts to start developing an un-named project! Another glimmer of hope for us Battlefront 3 fans as this could be the big moment that we are all waiting for!
There isn’t a whole lot of information available on this secret project, but hopefully we’ll be able to find some more out in the new future.
IGN had this to report:
“Former Ubisoft Montreal creative director Clint Hocking has joined LucasArts to develop an unannounced project, the company confirmed to IGN this morning.
Hocking spent the last nine years at Ubisoft heading development on Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, and more recently Far Cry 2.
He resigned from the company abruptly in May citing the need for new opportunities.
LucasArts has seen plenty of turnover the past few months. Paul Meegan replaced Darrell Rodriguez as president of the company in June, and Force Unleashed II producer Haden Blackman resigned just last week.”

“XBOX’s official achievement site, www.xbox360achievements.org, features all games on the XBOX 360 with achievements, as well as upcoming games that will be receiving achievements in-game as well. It turns out Star Wars Battlefront 3 is on the games list, though no achievements have been shown yet. There are no signs of a release date for Battlefront 3 on this site, but it gives us hope that the game is still alive!”

“I heard a rumor (from a not-so-reliable source) that Battlefront 3 is still in production at Rebellion, but it’s being delayed because they wish to claim rights to the technology formerly owned by Free Radical allowing instant ground-to-space travel.”
A big thanks to everyone who sent me an email with rumors, especially vadersdemise and Ryan!
