Star Wars: Battlefront Online Concept Art Leaks Out Of Slant Six

Siliconera: "The rumors are true, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City developer Slant Six was working on a Star Wars game back in 2010. Lucasarts hired Slant Six to make Star Wars Battlefront Online for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360." (PS3, Slant Six, Star Wars: Battlefront Online, Xbox 360)

You should be happy Slant Six is a crappy developer.

Haha, I was just going to say the same thing

I'd rather have no Battlefront sequel then a crappy one by the worse developer out there

Besides it's not really Battlefront 3 is it

Battlefront's good name went untarnished. That is a win.

Now if we could just keep the Banjo Kazooie, Crash, and Spyro IPs away from their perspective owners....

Slant Six must have a checklist of popular game franchises that they're out to ruin....

Socom............Check!
Resident Evil....Check!
Star Wars........

The concept art showed Jedi in the game. I really wish these developers would stop focusing on Jedi. Battlefront isn't supposed to be about Jedi it's supposed to be about the soldiers and their battles.

Also Socom Confrontation wasn't a terrible terrible game. Once they patched it it became a fun game. But before that it was bug ridden.

Zipper fixed it, Slant6 couldn't.

Well Jedi can be in the game. As long as balance exists. Not godlike superheros, but soldiers that are not immune to death. They should be able to die.

This works out very well in one Jedi Knight Jedi Academy mod with Jedi being balanced out to same level as soldiers. Personally I believe its gone a bit to far in the latest builds, but that's just me.

Check out Moviebattles 2 mod for JKA on Youtube or something like that. I actually get the feeling to play as another class other than Jedi in this mod without instant death fears.

Jedi in SWBF2 were awesome. So were regular soldier battles. Don't see whats wrong with having both

It's funny, I literally have SWBF1 in my PS2 running right now. I just got done serving the empire on Rhen Var: Citadel... The map were sweet on SWBF1, still pretty good on 2... They still need to make SWBF3 please.

If I remember correctly I seen video of gameplay on Endor maybe 1 1/2 yrs. ago, I think it was Pandemic's near completed version? (might've been slant six's but that don't seem right, oh well) It looked sweet, you could hop in a X-wing & shoot some Tie Fighters down then dock up in space!!! Looks aren't everything so maybe it didn't make for a focused game. You're right also Slant-six has mucked up quite a few good franchises LoL...

This made me so excited, Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was one of my favorite shooters (alongside Nightfire) last gen.

Then I read the article.

In a sense I'm kind of glad it isn't being made. Perhaps we should leave the series where it was. It had it's amazing time but now if they bring it back there's a huge chance it will either be received poorly or be too "CODified" for all of these 12 year old "gamers".

Forever in our hearts; SWBF2 <3

They were my two favourite shooters last gen too, Nightfire was amazing fun with local multiplayer. I am kinda happy they are leaving battlefront at the moment but I would love to see a finished version of pandemics battlefront 3 , that looked amazing !
KangarooSam  +   780d ago
I concur. And they would have a better handle on current gen tech, too. Which means truly big land to space battles. Man, that sounds so cool.

Nowadays I keep getting let down when developers bring back older shooters. Everytime they announce it I get all excited, only to find out that they canned all of the core elements of the game, in exchange for call of duty type gameplay to appeal to a crowd that might by the game, but will be gone once the next CoD comes out.

It's happening to all of my favorite shooters and I hate it.

One game I've wanted to see come back is Timesplitters. However, I'm scare for it because it's such a classic, that if it isn't done right a lot of people are going to be pissed. Maybe next gen will be different....but I hope that CoD gets knocked off sooner or later because it's influence on the industry disgusts me.

How did Slant 6 ruin SOCOM? I don't play too much SOCOM. Resident Evil, it wasn't their fault. RE was already crappy when ORC came out. Battlefront Online, I'm gonna be weary about this unless it is done right.

Oh boy...Operation Racoon City gets a sequel AND they now are making a Star Wars game.

Somewhere Uwe Bowl is smiling.
