Saturday’s announcement of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II may not have been the Star Wars game most fans were expecting, but there’s hope yet. According to the project’s casting director Chris Marazzo, the much-desired Battlefront 3 is still very much in the works.
After noticing “Star Wars Battlefront 3” mentioned as a recent project with LucasArts on Marazzo’s website, a fansite contacted the man and received a most reassuring response. “The Original Title was Battlefront 3 but it evolved into Star Wars Empire at War: Forces of Corruption [released in 2006]. However Battlefront 3 is also in development,” he said, adding that the project was “by far the most fun and coolest” casting he’s ever worked on.
There have been several unconfirmed Battlefront 3-related leaks and rumors in the past but, if Marazzo’s words are anything to go by, the game may just end up materializing eventually.
