Sources indicate that the next instalment in LucasArts' Star Wars: Battlefront series has been canned...
Gamers may have to wait until 2012 or beyond for LucasArts' next bite at the Star Wars: Battlefront apple if murmurings from Slant Six - the studio that had allegedly taken the helm of the third game in the series - are to be believed.
Sources close to the studio have indicated to Kotaku that the game, which was called Star Wars: Battlefront Online, had been in pre-production but was canned after LucasArts couldn't fit the title into its crowded slate of Star Wars games projected for 2011 releases. The project is now "on ice" according to the rumours.
Although Star Wars: Battlefront Online was never officially revealed, it was the first substantial news we'd heard of a new Battlefront game since Battlefront III footage was leaked from Free Radical Design as the studio closed its doors in early 2009 and was subsequently acquired by Crytek.
However, the casting director who recently revealed that he'd worked on a Battlefront 3 project is alleged to have been referring to Slant Six's Battlefront Online game. Whether Battlefront Online was building on the work started by Free Radical remains unclear.
