Star Wars Battlefront Check-in and Update
Hello fellow Battlefrontians! I know it’s been quite a while since my last post, but there has been absolutely nothing when it comes to Star Wars Battlefront news. I’ve been fairly busy as well with work and other side projects but things have started to wind down a bit now I will be starting to post regular updates again.
We all know that awhile back EA and Dice stated that they would be putting all future projects on hold until they resolved the issues with Battlefield 4:
Now because Battlefield 4 had so many issues, DICE used both the Los Angeles and Stockholm studios to help correct the technical issues. Which in turn, meant that development on the new Star Wars Battlefront would be pushed back. During a recent discussion with a DICE spokesman about Battlefield 4 downloadable content, the spokesman told fans that the final DLC (Naval Strike) would be the last DLC to be developed by the Stockholm studio, leaving them free to resume works on their future projects.
This is great news! We want DICE to get their asses back to work on Battlefront. Obviously what we don’t want though, is this game to be rushed and to turn out the same way Battlefield 4 did. I am still having issues with Battlefield 4, ranging from freezing (which is a constant daily issue) to other bugs that include sound and graphic issues. This is the last thing that I want Battlefront to be subjected to.
The rumours have been that Star Wars Battlefront is set to be released sometime in 2015, but EA’s official website has the game up for pre-order via Futureshop and Bestbuy, which states the estimated release date by December 31, 2014.
