A sharp-eyed reader on the The Battlefront Community forums has a hackworthy program that allows him to peep behind the scenes and see the lobbies for games that are currently running through GameSpy. Recently, those include listings for Star Wars Battlefront 3 on the PS3, PC, Wii, and PSP. Does this mean we're finally going to get official word that the game is on the way?
The third entry in the popular Star Wars Battlefront series has flirted with an actual announcement for nearly two years now. As long ago as 2008, the game was "accidentally" listed on Amazon with a March 2009 release date for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS and PSP. However, it was quickly yanked down. Then there was the artwork showing off an incredibly cool Sith version of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
That artwork was apparently from Free Radical Design, who was rumored to be working on the title. However, that came to an end when Free Radical had financial problems and shut down development. The game was rumored to have moved over to Pandemic, but they've also shuttered their doors. So what mystery developer is now working on the game?
Whoever it is, we're hoping there's a LucasArts announcement about the game at E3. It's been four years since Star Wars Battlefront 2 came out, and we've only had Renegade Squadron and Elite Squadron to feed the addiction, so it's about time.
