'Star Wars Battlefront' will receive the best developers from EA, says Söderlund

One of the more surprising, yet expected titles to be announced at E3 this past June had to be Star Wars Battlefront from EA. This is clearly an IP that the publisher is focused on making successful, and fans apparently are not the only ones who want to get their hands on Star Wars Battlefront.

EA Games Label head Patrick Söderlund discussed why they provided the Star Wars Battlefront IP to DICE and said they also wanted to make sure they have the best people working on the game.

Wonder if EA games will be on SteamOS?

DeadlyFire2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Depends on how big of a deal it becomes to the public. Valve is wise to business. They may have had a disagreement over how Origin should work alongside Steam, but if the OS was open ended. Likely an Origin front working with the OS could be possible for EA. If SteamOS lands on a console box then its likely EA will support it in some way. Coding from PC to Linux games would have to take a note directly from Valve, but it should certainly be possible. Only time will tell how things turn out. Valve is bringing 3000 or so titles over to the OS for its launch. Its a big incentive. More than PS4/1BX's 150 or so titles coming in the next year.

Need some footage before I can be excited

Kayant2828d ago

Yes :) Can't wait to see some gameplay I know it will probably take a year or more to come but hope something gets leaked early :p.

SonyStyled2828d ago

some of it was leaked when this game was canned when it was a lucas arts title before it was EA's. ill see if i can find it for you.

heres some. and theres plenty more on youtube

Jeedai Infidel2828d ago

My guess is that it will be here around May-June 2015, when SW ep. VII hits theaters.

Ashunderfire862828d ago

Actually it will come out in 2015 with Star Wars 7 movie EA said.

DeadlyFire2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

EA has BF4 for 2013, Titanfall for 2014(all platforms. TBA E3 2014), Battlefront(2015). I am impressed they are taking 2 years to develop the game.

Them saying they will innovate means many things to me.

I trust DICE to make a great star wars game, they have the technology.

(all the mechanics on their engine are made for battlefront.)

Jeedai Infidel2828d ago

Oh wow, I didn't even consider the vehicle aspect.

Jeedai Infidel2828d ago

Please DICE, let me fly a snowspeeder by some poor schlup and hook onto him with a tow cable and drag him to the skies.
