EA has been in the news a lot today due to its fiscal quarter report being released. However, the best news of the day (or year) has to be that EA DICE is apparently “well into development” on Star Wars: Battlefront. Frank Gibeau, EA Games Label president, broke the news during EA’s earnings call.
The DICE team is well into development on that product already, so we feel very bullish about our shooter rotation over the next several years.
Gibeau, also confirmed Star Wars: Battlefront will have a “third-person component to it”, hinting that players will be able to switch from first-person to third-person view (a feature found in its predecessors).
No release date has been given for Star Wars: Battlefront, but I’m hoping for sooner rather than later.
