    Default Star Wars Battlefront III Was 99% Done When LucasArts Scrapped It




    If you didn’t already hate LucasArts enough for needlessly cancelling Star Wars: Battlefront III, wait until you hear this: They canned it when the game was “99 per cent finished”, said the co-founder of the defunct studio behind the game.

    All it needed was “bug fixing”, Steve Ellis told gamesTM magazine. That’s it. Ellis earlier complained that a change in leadership brought in folks at LucasArts who were less interested in making games and more interested in killing the partnership.

    In 2008 Free Radical was looking to rebound from the high-risk, high-concept, low-reward shooter Haze with a proven winner in the Battlefront franchise, and never got the chance. The studio ultimately dissolved and its core assets, including TimeSplitters — a franchise mourned as much as Battlefront — was sold off to Crytek.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ellis

    An hour’s worth of video from this game was leaked back in July before LucasArts KGB’d it.

    Having overcome that challenge plus the morale dent suffered from Haze, all they needed to get back on track was QA for Battlefront III, which it never got.

    Now that it (LucasArts) is owned by Disney, I don't see any of that changing.

    Other than crappy videogame adaptions of movies and that Mickey Mouse game, Disney hasn't really been involved in gaming.

    Would've loved to see LucasArts go to Warner Bros, and have Battlefront 3 handled by Rocksteady.
