Star Wars Battlefront Considered part of Extended Universe Canon
Hello my fellow Battlefrontians! I know what you’re thinking! “Where the hell have you been!”. Well to tell the truth, I’ve been pretty busy this summer and there really hasn’t been that much news to report. That being said, I am back now and will be dedicating some time to getting some updates to the site.
I have been working on a development site that will eventually become the Battlefront 3 clan site, once the new Battlefront game is released. I plan on renting a server that Battlefront3.net can call their own and will be having regular tournaments, with prizes for the top leaderboards ect… Hopefully, over the coming months I can reveal bits and pieces of the new clan site and take on new ideas and suggestions from our forum members.
Getting down to it, in some slim news pickings, it turns out that Lucas Arts has confirmed that “two Star Wars games will be a part of and expand on the official franchise canon”, according to CVG.com
But it’s not all bad news: moving forward, video games won’t be part of the Expanded Universe. Instead, they’ll be part of the core franchise canon.
Gamespot reports Lucasfilm has announced that “all aspects of Star Wars storytelling moving forward will be connected”. A dedicated story group will oversee “all Star Wars creative development”, apparently.
Ongoing Expanded Universe projects, like Star Wars: The Old Republic, will not be folded into the glorious new canon, Lucasfilm confirmed.
The new canon will begin its expansion with upcoming novels and a new animated series, but later on DICE’s Battlefront and the mysterious Star Wars project at Visceral Games will contribute their mite.
So what has all my fellow Battlefronians been up to?!
