    With the fact that EA are already willing to talk about Star Wars games come their E3 conference I wouldn't be surprised if a team at DICE has been assigned to finish off First Assault under the title of the Battlefront franchise.

    It wouldn't be a surprise to get battlefront 3 now. And speaking of "traditional" SW games, first thing that comes to mind is JEDI KNIGHT!!!!!

    Another Battlefront is fine by me. Hell, bring on sequels to Jedi Knight, Rogue Squadron, Republic Commando or even another RTS (though I haven't played much of EAW sadly).

    Please do give us a new Battlefront, but only after an appropriate amount of beta testing. :p

    I can't understand why LA cancelled 3 in the first place, or why they never went back to it.

    It just doesn't make sense to me. I mean look at how much FPS and TPS gaming has exploded on consoles since 2006. A Star Wars: Battlefront in 07/08 would have absolutely dominated the videogames market. We should be on Battlefront 6 or 7 by now!

    Hindsight is 20/20 I guess. All the footage I've seen of the in-development 3 looked incredible, especially the part with the Actis starfighter going up from the ground to the space battle. It looked perfect, like what Star Wars games have always been meant to look and feel like.

    They did go back to it - First Assault was to 'test the waters' for a full-scale BFIII, which was under development under the code name of "Version Two". It was being built all the way up to LA's closure, when the project was canned. If Disney didn't buy LFL, we would have had a BFIII announced by now.

    It may have, but didn't pan out that way sadly. Though, if they come out with a BFIII in the next year or two, I think it will still be huge - look at the current FPS market now - dominated by COD, which is already X years old and has no real new gameplay since the original, or BFIII, which is made by DICE, and is really similar in many ways but much more realistic and balanced than COD. I think a product which strives for a great gameplay experience and has enough in it to differentiate it from the "standard" FPS's that have flooded the market recently it will do very well, even more so than it will just because of the title alone.

    Hope it is good like the other Battlefront franchise games, thought i was more focused at Star Wars 1313, which was cancelled. >:L
