The Star Wars: Battlefront reboot currently in pre-production at Battlefield developer DICE isn’t due until summer 2015.
Announced at E3 2013 with a short teaser trailer, following LucasFilm’s sale of the Star Wars license to Disney, Battlefront represents just one of a whole bunch of games being developed by EA.
"We have partnered with Walt Disney and LucasFilm to develop a whole new generation of Star Wars games for the console as well as for mobile and handheld devices," said EA CFO Blake Jorgensen during an investors call.
"The first game that we're focused on is Battlefront. It's a traditional game that's done extremely well and this will most likely come out around the same time as the Star Wars movies start to come out, probably in the summer of '15.”
Other EA studios slated to produce Star Wars games include Dead Space dev Visceral and Mass Effect creator BioWare.
