I wish its Like Mass Effect...A Shooter at the core but with RPG elements in the star wars universe.

Best hoping we see SW:BF3 or just the multiplayer for XLA/PSN for next gen.

Mass effect an RPG? Perhaps ME1 but 2 and 3 are not RPGs

Give Crytek UK SWBF3!!So they can finish it.

Rather see DICE handle that one.

I'd love to see DICE make it as well but I have this fear that it'll just be a re-skinned Battlefield 3.

God no....crytek are ok and I liked Crysis 3 MP but a game with vehicles, shooting and flying vehicles seems like it would go better with a dev who knows how to do all that already in DICE

Crytek UK is the original developers of Battlefront 3. Only reason they're Crytek now is because they bought them out. Though the thought of DICE doing it is interesting too.

Edit: Forgot to specify Battlefront 3.

Ea was a good choice

I'm one of the disagrees....."good" choice? da faq? Thats not a good choice buddy.

THATS A DAMN GREAT CHOICE! To the fellow disagreers, I mean....at least I'm saying why I disagree cause its great not good. duh. But really, could anyone of you even state a damn publisher that would be better to hold the Star Wars IP? EA just has a stable of beast teams that can deliver a great Star Wars game. I know Ubisoft did a great job with Force Unleashed, but could they do a Star Wars MP game, then a Star Wars RPG?

I'm sorry but EA is the best bet on this one. Bioware, DICE and Visceral are just some ace teams, I could not think of any publisher with 3 other studios in which I would want the Star Wars IP to be made.

I don't disagree with people on here often and I usually explain when I do,
Star wars 2113 was looking really promising and I don't believe any normal company seeing that work they have done wouldn't let them finish the work.

Now EA are involved after scenting a large intellectual property up for grabs may have had a little word with disney

Bring battlefront 3 out for next gen..
Wenis  +   885d ago
It will.. the game will take 2 or 3 yrs to make, and next gen will be well established by then. Its too bad that we didn't get a SWBF game this gen though..

would love to star wars like battlefield instead of getting in jets you get in x-wing fighters and tie fighters that would be nice. or instead of tanks you get an AT AT walker.

As long as they bring back splitscreen multiplayer against dumb bots I don't care who makes it, that shit was the best.

I hate to play the Devil's advocate, and I've been against much of what EA has done, but this could be good.

They handled the Bond franchise well, they gave us games like EON and Nightfire, whereas under EA, it failed.

DICE making Battlefront 3 with Frostbite 3 would be great, infact, another Rogue Squadron sounds awesome! plus with EA's resources they can finish 1313.

Of course, knowing EA of late, they could screw it up with micro-transactions, rushing etc.
