DICE: Next Star Wars game is Battlefront is well into development
DICE is "well into development" on next-gen multiplayer shooter Star Wars: Battlefront, EA Games Label president Frank Gibeau has revealed.
Gibeau discussed DICEs progress on the title during EAs FY14 Q1 earnings call earlier this evening, following the games announcement at E3 last month.
"We showed 22 seconds of where were going with it and the fan response was very positive," commented Gibeau. "The DICE team is well into development on that product already, so we feel very bullish about our shooter rotation over the next several years."
Star Wars: Battlefront also "has a third-person component to it", Gibeau confirmed, suggesting the game will retain the previous games option to switch between first and third-person perspectives.
The game is said to be being created by the Battlefield team using the Frostbite 3 engine.
A release date for the title has yet to be announced.
