Star Wars: Battlefront 3 Leaked Footage Shows What It Could’ve Been

Star Wars: Battlefront 3 Star Wars: Battlefront 3

New footage of what could have been Star Wars: Battlefront 3 has surfaced online. We have the scoop on the latest information.

After Disney's recent decision to close down LucasArts, fans everywhere have shown just how big or small of an impact their games have made on their lives. Several sour grapes were shown though, whether they were about their not-so-popular titles in most recent years or the lack of Star Wars: Battlefront 3 in their lives. Rumors upon rumors were made creating hype for years for a new Battlefront title. Spark Unlimited was rumored to be the team behind its creation for months until they revealed Lost Planet 3, but now, now we have a new light on the situation.

After years of people (including me) saying that LucasArts were doomed to fail because of poorly executed titles and the lack of communication between them and the fans, something good came out of waiting. LucasArts sadly went under recently and what soon followed was new leaked footage of what could have been Star Wars: Battlefront 3. Besides the first person shooter aspect of the game, this secret project titled "Version Two" looked good for where it stood. Check out the leaked footage below before we continue with the conversation.

Its a shame really, that if fans had known that they were listening to them all along, they'd of supported the team more. The only problem in the end was of course, communication. Whoever worked on this secret title all knew of the huge fanbase aching for a new Battlefront title:

“[There’s] a very vocal audience that’s clamoring for Battlefront III,” a source told Kotaku. “We were hoping to eventually give it to them.”

Whether or not the entire game was canned isn't known but the chance of seeing a third installment isn't impossible. Disney did state when closing LucasArts something along the lines of: if a developer wanted to pick up the pieces that they would gladly hand them the keys to the car. If anyone were to pick up Star Wars: Battlefront 3, or reboot it at all, my vote would be for DICE.

If what the Battlefield 4 trailer released shows, it's what the Frostbite 3 Engine can accomplish. Keep in mind that the trailer footage for BF4 was only alpha footage and not the final product. Even as an alpha build of the game it looked damn impressive. I can only imagine what the possibilities could be if they were to pick up the Battlefront IP.

What are your thoughts on this? Which devs would you like to see make a new Star Wars: Battlefront
