Star Wars Battlefront Sequel Files Found on Operation Raccoon City Disk

By   /   4 years ago


Hidden files found on the disc of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City suggests that the developer Slant Six Games was working on Star Wars: Battlefront sequel.

These files were retrieved from a hidden folder named ‘Luke’ and include artwork for a Hoth level and a character model of Luke; shining in his orange pilot jumpsuit, ready to wage war.

The description on the level reads – “It is the morning of the Imperial assault on the Rebel base on Hoth. The wreckage of a downed Victory Class Star Destroyer is the setting for one of the first battles over Echo Base and the future of the Rebellion hangs in the balance.”

This new information matches what we already know from the Kotaku report from January 2010 that stated that the Socom developer was working on an online-only Battlefront game titled ‘Star Wars: Battlefront Online’.

Battlefront sequel has been in rumors since 2008, when Lucas Arts reportedly halted work on Battlefront 3 after two years of development, leading to the downfall of Free Radical, the studio that was responsible for the development of the game.

Recently, we heard that Battlefront 3 duties have been handed over to Spark Unlimited, the studio behind first-person shooter, Legendary: The Box. We also came across several LinkedIn Job references and tweets, but nothing concreted.

This story was unearthed by BetaGames and posted on NeoGAF.
