It’s been a pretty hopeless journey for Star Wars: Battlefront III. After developer Free Radical released the weak-sauce Haze back in 2008, they were forced to shut down, with any hopes of seeing BF3 shutting down with them. Fortunately, they were later acquired by Crytek UK, but their talents were put to other projects.
Recently, some rumors have risen up to speculate that Battlefront III has quite possibly been picked up. The bad news? It may have been picked up by Spark Unlimited, who happened to make this.
Of course, maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to judge. Perhaps Spark just never had good publishers for their projects; with LucasArts commanding them, they might just shine.
But where are my manners? I should explain how these rumors came to be. Oxcgn just stated their hypotheses of BF3 being very much alive. They noted that recently, Spark Unlimited posted job ads stating they were looking to work on an “AAA third person sci-fi title”, as well as other details that could describe a potential BF3. Then the developer tweeted on March 12th that they were having dinner with their “new publisher” in San Francisco. Another tweet revealed that LucasArts just happened to attend a very similar dinner, at the very same time, and at around the same place (GDC San Francisco). Hmmm.
While these are all just rumors at this point, the force is certainly strong with them. If more info does come out regarding Battlefront III, OnlySP will definitely have you covered.
