Eager Star Wars fans can mark Summer ’15 as the launch window for the highly anticipated sci-fi shooter from DICE, Star Wars: Battlefront, according to publisher Electronic Arts.
Speaking in a briefing call to shareholders, CFO Blake Jorgensen said, “The first game that we’re focused on is Battlefront. It’s a traditional game that’s done extremely well and this will most likely come out around the same time as the Star Wars movies start to come out, probably in the summer of ’15.”
In addition to Battlefront which EA previously stated is already “well into development” at DICE, Jorgensen also mentioned a few other Star Wars projects.
“We have partnered with Walt Disney and LucasFilm to develop a whole new generation of Star Wars games for the console as well as for mobile and handheld devices,” he said.
As outlined in the initial deal between EA and Disney, both BioWare and Visceral Games would be joining DICE in the creation of new Star Wars games.
Sounds like Summer ’15 is going to be a good one.
