A "whole new generation of Star Wars games" is coming, but EA suggests that the galaxy is still far, far away.
EA CFO Blake Jorgensen revealed that DICE LA-developed shooter Star Wars: Battlefront 3 will likely miss 2014 altogether. “The first game that we’re focused on is Battlefront. It’s a traditional game that’s done extremely well and this will most likely come out around the same time as the Star Wars movies start to come out, probably in the summer of ’15,” he said during a recent investor call. Whether it also ties in with the new films remains to be seen, but we reckon that DICE would be mad not to add some new vehicles and environments into the mix.
“We have partnered with Walt Disney and LucasFilm to develop a whole new generation of Star Wars games for the console as well as for mobile and handheld devices,” Jorgensen continued, suggesting that we'll have more than a few things to tide us over. Will this include Star Wars: Attack Squadron? [via CVG]
