EA talk Star Wars: Battlefront

June 14th, 2013 by bash Comments

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.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
