Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen told investors on an earnings call today that his company's new take on the Battlefront video game mini-franchise "will most likely come out around the same time that the Star Wars movies start to come out, probably in the summer of '15."
EA's Star Wars: Battlefront, which is in development at the company's DICE studio, was first announced at E3 2013 in June. EA Games president Frank Gibeau told investors last week that DICE was "well into development" on the game.
