Rumour: Battlefront III heading back to Pandemic

A very reliable “insider source” has told videogaming247 that Star Wars Battlefront 3 is heading back to Pandemic’s studios in Los Angeles, California.

Pandemic Studios and LucasArts developed the first Battlefront back 2004, with the sequel coming out just a year later.

However, inside of 12 months of Battlefront II’s release, Free Radical Design announced that it would be making a third title in the series. The project was dropped late last year amid FRDs financial difficulties.

Yesterday, alpha footage leaked onto the net that another one our VG247′s contacts told us that footage was indeed real.

We have contacted EA, who owns Pandemic Studios, but as of yet have not been able to reach the publisher for comment.

VG247 is told that this is pretty nailed on, so expect an announcement sooner rather than later.

    Bizarre.

    Do these games actually sell? I tried the demo of the first one and thought it was pretty rubbish.

    Splitscreen multiplayer, with the Star Wars cast. That is one hell of a party game.

    So ofcourse it sells.

    One of my most enjoyable gaming experiences was playing the first one at a LAN party, taking down AT-ATs has never been more fun.

    The Star Wars mod’s for the various battlefield games do the job just as well.

    Who cares about Battlefront anyway, we need more X-Wing games.

    I care about Battlefront. As a result, I want this to come to PS3 instead of, you know, being cancelled.
