Rumor – Battlefront 3 leaked by GameSpy

Saturday, 15th May 2010 18:17 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


A massive rumor, and one not to get too excited over because – well it’s a rumor – has GameSpy accidentally outing Star Wars: Battlefront 3.

According to a fan based Battlefront 3 site, there’s a list supposedly from a program that allows you to check out the servers GameSpy host for gaming.

In a screen of the list, plain as the nose on your face, is a listing for Star Wars: Battlefront 3.

The site that posted this admits that it’s possible to fake this, but it’s there for your critiquing eye anyway.

Undoubtedly, BF3′s the game rumor that never seems to die, ya know. Last we heard, it was rumored that since Free Radical lost the rights on the game, that Rebellion took it over – this was after a former-Free Radical employee leaked game shots and Lucasarts called for the offending material to be removed.

Rebellion then announced Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron, and we have heard nothing since – until today.

We’ll shoot a mail off just in case, but if true, don’t expect Lucasarts to admit it’s real, until the firm is damn good and ready to reveal the game.

If it ever happens at all.

    There are so many rumors on this game, to list them all would turn into a PhD dissertation.

    The most stupid thing that it lists PC, PS3, PSP and Wii and no Xbox 360. Wut?

    @4 Because only MS can host a Xbox 360 server. GameSpy is not allowed. Or else Bill Gates will kick in your door.

    omg, can this be true?

    April fools?
    /checks calender; has allready been, check

    world coming down?
    /checks window. world still looks online and someone responds to my “PING” shout with “shut up”. world alive. check

    hacked vg247?
    /pings, tracerouts and pingpaths – looks good. check

    my connection hacked?
    /calls a .friend, asks him to vistit vg247 and read the first entry. hes telling something about battlefront 3. i shit my pants : Battlefront 3? i have to recheck that. maybe hes lying.

    rechecking entry at an unconcerned machine
    /asks .neighbour to use the things hes calling a computer (lolnub). tells him its a case of life and death (still havent completly stroke out world coming down – the response could have come from a bot. Never can completly stroke out possibility of him allready been assimilated.). pulls him of the chair and shift+deled an letter which first line reads “dear father. I got diagnosed cancer.” next line something about 3 weeks left, no plains and it closed with heaven(wtf is he on about anyway. Im glad there are no plains constantly flying over my house where i live. So should he. He should be thankfull for the 3 weeks he still has. I guess hes on some cancer rehab vacation if something like that exists. I would kill for a 3 week vacation godamn. and btw planes fly in the SKY. not heaven. Moron). After .neighbour first completly bleeched out, secondly started puking and finaly fell apart, i could recheck vg247. It says Battlefront 3 is in the pipes. I reshit my pants. Woke up next to .neighbour after a couple of hours. .neighbour still hibernates.

    after recaping the checklist, im starting to realize theres something in the kitchen regarding, wait, Battlefront 3? I shit my pants again.

    Isnt this a beautiful day?

    well, maybe the game isnt the hottest shit ever, but hey both its predecessors i found absolutely brilliant, and very StarWars-ish. I brought a good experience.
    Maybe i would not even comment news about the game if it just would have been announced, developed and fianyl shipped like u would expect a moderately big franchise what Battlefront always was as far as im concerned and have experienced it. And if it would not have been reported quite confidently beeing dead,canned and binned for over a year now..
    And that very very promising leak shortly before it died.
    And u have both, big guns + lightsabers in one game. What more can u imagine? Put in a Deathstar and there u are, u made a almost perfect game somewhat jedi-rated!

    Whatever u pick, i shit my pants ;)

    Steph: Well now its to late, i allready told everyone (read every-one) that vg247′s Stephaney Nunneley world exklusively reveald BF3 and that it has pant-shitting deathstars in it!
