EA: Star Wars Battlefront Likely to Hit Shelves in Summer 2015
Battlefront 1 and 2 garnered a colossal fanbase that’s been clamoring for a sequel—Battlefront 3—to be released. While the death of LucasArts may have put a damper on the proceedings, the series remains alive thanks to Electronic Arts and DICE, which latched onto the franchise as soon as it became available for them to pursue.
Thanks to a deal with the Walt Disney Company, EA DICE will be developing a sequel to Battlefront. Titled simply Battlefront, the game is regarded as a reboot of the franchise and was first announced this past May.
Today, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said EA expects to bring Battlefront out “alongside the new Star Wars films, probably in summer 2015.”
He made the statement during the Q&A session at today’s EA investor conference call. We expect to hear more about the game as the date nears.
