As you may already know, after Disney acquired LucasArts, they stopped the production of a variety of upcoming Star Wars games, including the hotly hyped Star Wars 1212, and the at the time in-production Battlefront 3.
Battlefront 3 was being designed as a direct sequel of the previous Battlefront games, and unlike the plethora of new mobile based Star Wars games released under Disney’s watch, it was something that many gamers were genuinely excited about.
Unfortunately, Battlefront 3 was cancelled, and all development of the game was halted, but a brand new video shows off leaked gameplay, giving details of what the game could have become.
The video, which can be seen on YouTube, is very rough as the game is still in alpha stage, but the framework for the game was certainly clear.
It was a shame that Battlefront 3 was cancelled, but Disney have now set Battlefield creator DICE to the task of making the next best title for the franchise. Simply named Battlefront, many have expected the game to draw inspiration from DICE's FPS background to offer a super enjoyable Star Wars shooter experience.
Will DICE’s Battlefront be better than Battlefront 3 could have been? We will never know, but let's hope DICE does the game justice.
Battlefront by DICE is set for release at some point next year. Unfortunately a full release date has not yet been revealed by the developer.
Hopefully we will see some proper footage of DICE's game soon.
