Battlefront III Says Adios To Rebellion

Posted By Mike on March 11, 2009

Our friend "Jedi Power" from Galactic-Voyage sent over the following report via DarkZero:


"Just wanted to let you know that the troubled development of Star Wars: Battlefront 3 has taken another interesting twist. After jumping from the sinking ship Free Radical to Rebellion, who are currently hard at work on Aliens vs. Predator 3, it has now been handed back into the hands of the developer of the first two installments – Pandemic.

After the recent leaked footage - which we’d thought to be in-game, but since turned out to be pre-rendered - appeared online in the post-Free Radical fallout, Battlefront 3 looked full of promise, and with Rebellion’s experience with the underrated PSP version, the future of the series was looking good. Pandemic, however, are on a bit of a downward ebb in recent times, with Mercenaries 2 being a huge disappointment, and Lord of the Rings: Conquest – billed as essentially “Battlefront in Middle Earth.”

Let's hope Pandemic can pull through its money troubles and schedule conflicts to put together another great installment of the Battlefront series!"




My fingers are crossed as I knock on wood that we will see Battlefront III sooner than later! More news as we hear it, especially when we finally hear something official.


Thanks "JP"!!!




UPDATE: Friend of TFN, Andrew, points us over to the Official Pandemic Studios forums where community manager Mathew Everett offered up the following response to BF3 / Pandemic rumors...


"As of right now I can say Battlefront 3 is not currently at Pandemic. While I know the title seems to be up in the air from all the buzz around the web... Lucas Arts will be the only one knowing where the title is at right now."



We'll certainly let you know if we hear something official...someday!



Thanks Andrew!
