That's actually good to hear. Making Battlefront 3 canon almost confirms a good story in that game. Also it shows that this is a big deal for both EA and LucasArts so we might be in for a very good game. On another note I liked especially this part a lot:

"EA's Frank Gibeau told CVG that the new plan for EA is to rotate between Titanfall, Star Wars: Battlefront and Battlefield games every year."

Maybe EA is changing for the better, giving games more development time ...or maybe they have finally played their own games and realized that releasing buggy messes like Sim City or BF4 isn't helping this industry at all.

I'm encouraged by EA's comment towards a 3-year, 3 franchise cycle. IF they stick to it and launch each title correctly, then each installment should be a well timed compliement to the last one while allowing it to mature but without that annualized feeling.

I disagree. It confirms that the story will be canon, whether its any good is another thing all together.

Now, EA being in charge of making games with the SW license is certainly better than LucasArts. But I am extremely skeptical until I see what Disney intends to do with the franchise. They've had successes with existing franchises but also some failures.

Its been quite a while since I've been wow'ed by anything with Star Wars attached to it. There has been some up's but quite a few down's as well. Just based on the track records alone of everyone involved with the SW license currently, a certain amount of skepticism seems justified.

BF = 2013
Titanfall = 2014
SW BF = 2015
Bf5 = 2016

Am I close ?

I agree. It seems like EA is aware of the opportunity they have with Battlefront. It's a beloved franchise and if they do it justice it'll go a long way towards repairing their relationship with gamers.

they need to have a few classic multiplayer mods in Battlefront like hero assault i believe it was called that was a whole lot of fun.

No story mode please

Delsin_Rowe1694d ago

Why not, battlefront always had a good story mode and without it be a multiplayer game which will not be worth my time since I like to play story first before multiplayer.

Dude even though Battlefield campaigns are just the same old Military fanfictions, Dice making a campaign based on star wars would be something awesome especially with the Frostbite engine graphics.

Lawndart19811694d ago

A campaign might be worthwhile especially if it somehow ties in the events between ROTJ and Episode VII

I just heard the original cast is coming to the The next Star Wars movie. I wonder if they will be in the next game as well.

Sure is a small 'Star Wars' universe now that Disney culled the EU comics/books and games.

I think it sucks. Even worse if KOTOR is forgotten because of it.
