DICE wants to create “the best Star Wars game ever” with its currently in development Star Wars: Battlefront, according to general manager Karl-Magnus Troeddson.
“Historically DICE hasn’t worked on licenses that are not our own so this is different for us. If someone came to us with another licence then we’d probably say no but, in this case, Star Wars has a very special place in our heart. So when the chance to work on this game came up, we grabbed it,” Troeddson recently told MCV. ”But that comes with 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.
“When we approach something like Battlefront there’s only one way for us to think about it and that’s: we are going to build the best Star Wars game ever created, if nothing else because Star Wars deserves it.”
During EA’s E3 press conference, the publisher showed a brief glimpse at some early in-engine concept footage for the game, offering a look at Hoth and the Moon of Endor.
So far no official release date has been offered for Star Wars: Battlefront, but EA did promise that more details would be revealed during spring 2015.
