    Whatever happened to Battlefront? Nobody really knows. Not even that scowling mystical turnip, Yoda. but Betagames claim to have found remnants of a Battlefront project in the form of images stashed away on the Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City disk. That seems like an odd place to leave some spare files, but Raccoon City developers, Slant Six were rumoured to have been working on the third game in the Battlefront series for a while. The files include a variety of pro-quality loading screens and some odd bits of texture work, including a hideous image of Luke Skywalker’s face stretched out on a 2D plane. Eeeugh.

    Here are a few of the images, courtesy of Betagames, by way of the Battlefront 3 fansite. The next Battlefront is since rumoured to have moved from Slant Six to Spark Unlimited, who have responded coyly to VG247‘s inquiries saying that they are “working on a sequel for a well known sci-fi franchise,” adding that “all aspects must remain secret,” presumably out of fear of failing lord Vader for the last time.

    Hopefully they’ll dig in and redouble their efforts, a big Battlefront game in a new engine would be rather welcome.

    Here's that one of Luke's face stretched out that the article mentioned. Noticed that the OP "mysteriously" left it out. Bwahaha.

    Also, dat filename: Luke-Skywalkaaargh

    Anyway, yes! This is exciting.

    I spent countless hours playing Battlefront 2 with my friends, and never got tired of it. I've been waiting for this game for a LONG time.

    Reinstalling Battlefront 2 this is the best news ever. If they have in-game transitions between land and space I'll fucking cry tears of joy.

    Read the article. It's more than likely some nice dev left the files in on purpose just to give us solid hope.

    I really want to see this game, it's so exciting imagining Battlefront with today's hardware, though I am very worried that they'll change it to play more like modern shooters

    I personally want to be able to choose between first and third person again, this time with better animations and less sloppy viewmodel work (case in point, the rocket launchers in B2) but without more popular additions in shooters these days like iron sights

    It must be kind of nice for a fairly unknown developer to have the rights to Battlefront. If they do a good job, it's basically a free ticket to being a super well known and loved developer. Then again, if they do a sub-par job, it's a free ticket to being a disliked and bankrupt developer.

    Well the second was more than just a shooter (jedi control) so a change in controls made sense.

    Shortly thereafter, a former Free Radical Design employee said some of the technology Free Radical developed for the game, specifically the contiguous game environment from planet surface into space, "is dying with us"
    Even if there was a Battlefront 3. I highly doubt we'll ever see most of the features Free Radical had in store.

    I don't really see how Free Radical could even say that. They're not overseeing the development of the game anymore, so saying "Yeah they're totally not doing that thing that we were gonna do." is kind of a huge assumption to make.

    That being said, I would honestly be surprised if they DIDN'T do it, since there's huge fan hype and request for that specific feature above all others, so if they're keeping their ear to the ground and listening to feedback, they'll probably include it in some form.
