I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

If it means Battlefront 3 and 1313 get released, then I'll gladly cheer for EA

They might get Bioware working on a KoToR 3. Probably won't, but you can hope eh.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

I know EA is not the most favorite company among gamers, but this sounds better than the former alternative which is a dark void. This opens up a possibility of Battlefront 3, 1313 coming back, and maybe be a sequel for KOTOR.

Yea, Bioware to do KoToR 3, DICE could make Battlefront 3, Visceral could take on the abandoned "1313"... how about that?

and to think i have been desperately wanting a new Star Wars Battlefront game for the past 8 years.....and this is the compromise?..not really sure i want one now


Not even sure where people are getting off that DICE are good for Star Wars Battlefront....ahoy,First Person and not Third and First,DLC for weapon add-ons,vehicles overpowered on every map,heroes of the movies sticking their noses in and taking centre stage and the grand finale......season passes


Terrible News

The last decent Star Wars game was Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on the Xbox/PC, i knew this was going to happen when it was announced Disney were getting their hands on Star Wars.

Guess with it being EA there will be no WiiU or 3DS games either.
used to own - NES, Atari ST, Amiga 500, Mega Drive, SNK Neo Geo, SNES, Saturn, N64, PS2, GameCube, Alienware Aurora.
currently own - PS1, Xbox, Xbox360 + Kinect, Wii, PS3 + MOVE, 3DS, Games PC, Wii U.
