[VRZ] Star Wars Battlefront III was 99% done upon cancellation[Update] - Page 2

post #11 of 118
It was canceled long before Disney came along. Hopefully, Disney likes money enough to update it for next-gen consoles and current PC abilities, and release it. It's like a guaranteed investment; they can't go wrong.

In early 2012, Free Radical Design co-founder Steve Ellis said that the company had worked on Battlefront III.[7] Ellis said the game was "pretty much done" in 2008, but that it was effectively canned when LucasArts could not commit to "spend big" on marketing it

As said, long before Disney bought them out.

That's extremely sad... Battlefront II was such an awesome game. And those features of ground to space integration in a single battle sounds so awesome.... frown.gif

I even heard of a few maps they were going to add like Duel on the Invisible Hand and others that sounded so fun. If it wasn't DRM'ed to the nines and was not too buggy, I'd have dropped 60 bucks on this guy at release with no regrets.

lucas arts came under new management 3 years ago and that is when they cancelled it. the leaks of the game footage and free radical talking about how their new game tech was dying with them began in 2009 when the new upper management killed it and several employees were still publicly pretending they didn't know about it.

Battlefront III's development dates back to 2006 and LucasArts has undergone a number of shakeups between then and now. The chances of this having anything at all to do with Disney's acquisition are next to zero.
