Following shortly after today’s earlier announcement that Visceral Games’ Battlefield Hardline will be hitting the streets on March 17, 2015, video game publisher Electronic Arts is now also giving Digital Illusion CE’s Star Wars-themed shooter, Battelfront, a release time frame of its own.
According to news coming out of a recent EA financial report, fans of the classic sci-fi series can expect Star Wars: Battlefront to arrive during the Holidays of next year, 2015. Originally, the shooter was expected to launch some time during Summer 2015 to coincide with the debut of Star Wars: Episode VII, but with Hardline’s new March release date, EA says Battlefront is better suited for Holiday launch to facilitate the release of a “major first-person shooter title each year.”
Renown Battlefield developer DICE gave audiences a first glimpse of what the studio has been working on during their presentation at E3 earlier this year, highlighting some of the sources of inspiration the Star Wars team has been drawing from. You can watch the replay here, including some early in-game footage of Battlefront.
