(RUMOR) - Star Wars Battlefront Online Rumored Canceled

It was never even officially announced, and the multiplayer-only Star Wars: Battlefront Online has reportedly been scrapped. Kotaku reports that it was in development at SOCOM: Confrontation developer Slant Six, which was forced to lay off a number of employees this week. The company claims that these are only "temporary layoffs" and an effort will be made to bring those affected back when the time is right.
Slant Six managing director Brian Thalken confirmed the layoffs to GameSpot and explained, "Our current project needs do not align with our current staffing levels." He added that "as many of these staff members as possible" will be brought back once work begins to pick up on their next projects, but no time frame was given.

The layoffs are a result of LucasArts putting Star Wars: Battlefront Online "on ice," Kotaku reports. LucasArts apparently wanted the game to be shipped in 2010 and not next year where they already have a "stacked 2011 schedule" for Star Wars games. After seeing that a 2010 release wasn’t going to happen, they opted to cancel the game.

Slant Six has developed three games to date. In addition to their aforementioned PS3 title, SOCOM: Confrontation, they developed two SOCOM games for PSP: SOCOM: Tactical Strike and SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3.
