EA Games Label chief Patrick Soderlund has said that his firm’s Star Wars: Battlefront game would be an “interpretation” of the series.
Speaking to Eurogamer, the executive confirmed that the DICE studio in Stockholm would be handling primary development of the game.
This is DICE’s interpretation of what Battlefront should be,” he said. “That’s the best description you can have.
“There are absolutely things in the previous Battlefront games that you’ll recognise and remember, but DICE wants to put its own flavour on it.
“That’s the only way we can do it. Hence it’s called Star Wars: Battlefront, without a 3 at the end. We want to say it’s something new.”
EA signed a multi-year deal with Disney at the start of May to make “core” Star Wars titles.
