Star Wars Battlefront is Going to be Best Star Wars Ever, Says DICE
We are all waiting in on Star Wars Battlefront but so far that has been only because it is the next big installment in the gigantic universe of Star Wars. What if I tell you that DICE is not making just another game in the series but the ‘best Star Wars game ever?’
The general manager of DICE Karl-Magnus Troedsson was talking about the game in a recent interview where he expressed his and the development studio’s enthusiasm about the project while also claiming that their game is going to be the game in the universe:
Star Wars has a very special place in our hearts. So when the chance to work on this game came up, we grabbed it. But that comes with a different kind of dependency that we haven’t had for a long time as we’re working with someone else’s IP. But LucasFilm has been absolutely spectacular. Everyone is approaching this with the same idea – that we are going to create the best Star Wars game ever.
That being said, it has been conveyed to us that DICE is still not giving the driver’s seat to Star Wars but instead wants preference to be given to Battlefield. However, Troedsson remarks that making such a Star Wars game has only one approach. That is to think that ‘we are going to build the best Star Wars game ever created, if nothing else because Star Wars deserves it.’
Star Wars Battlefront is being developed for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One – no last gen consoles. Although we don’t have an official release date yet, it is expected that the game will be out in the markets by the second or third quarter of 2015.
