SOCOM: Confrontation developers Slant Six Games are working on a new Battlefront game with LucasArts, known thus far as Battlefront Online.

That’s according to a rumour from Kotaku.

Obviously, the name implies it is online only.

The rumour states it is currently in pre-production, with a 2011 release for the game on PS3 and 360.

It seems this has now become what Battlefront III used to be.

Free Radical, who were rumoured to be the original developer of the now possibly canned game altogether, went into administration before Christmas of 2008.

They were soon bought out by Crysis developer Crytek, first confirmation of which came from Haze writer, Rob Yescombe.

Nothing has been heard out of Battlefront since last year, when leaked footage of the shooter appeared online.

There was, before Christmas of last year, talk of it still existing, however.

Casting director Chris Marazzo confirmed it was still alive, but the Kotaku report cites it was actually for Battlefront Online, and not BFIII.
