New Battlefront Game? EA CFO Thinks so!
Good morning Battlefrontians and some more good news. According to Gamespot.com, which had a chance to speake to EA’s CFO (Chief Financial Officer) Blake Jorgensen at the Stifel 2013 Technology Conference, dropped a nice big juicy hint that doing a new Battlefront game is “very exciting” because it’s one of the most popular Star Wars games.
He also reiterated that EA’s new Star Wars games will not be based specifically on any of the upcoming Star Wars films, though they may be released near them to leverage the marketing opportunity.
“These aren’t movie games, per se; these are stand-alone games,” Jorgensen said. “But obviously they would come out near the movies and be able to tailgate off of some of the buzz that will be created around the new Star Wars movies.”
So there you have it, there still is hope for our Battlefront 3 after all! There also seems to be a lot of mixed feelings that EA will be creating the new (or sequel) to one of the best games ever made. In my opinion, this is a good thing. After so many disappointments over the years, I am just happy that someone is finally looking at getting this game created for us! Now whether it is done right or not is a different story and will always be a lingering feeling in the back of my mind.
So what is your take on EA on creating a potential Battlefront 3 or a new Battlefront altogether?
