E3 2013: New Star Wars Battlefront in Development
Posted by Dave Letcavage
A Luke-warm reception, this was not
Not too long ago, EA acquired the exclusive rights to develop games based on the Star Wars franchise, and as you can imagine, some fans immediately began speculating whether or not we'd see the return of the long dormant Star Wars: Battlefront series.
Well, wonder no longer.
During this afternoon's EA press briefing it was announced via a brief teaser trailer that Star Wars: Battlefront is currently in development at DICE - Battlefield and Mirror's Edge developer. The trailer showcased a desolate snow-covered landscape reminiscent of Hoth, and just as a bit of action begins, the foot of an AT-AT comes crashing down before flashing to the title screen.
So, what do you think Star Wars fans? Is this the game you were hoping to hear about today, or were you more curious about whether EA would resuscitate Star Wars: 1313 instead? Give us your thoughts below.
