It’s been four years since Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was released. Despite the initial controversy about the questionable integration of loot boxes and microtransactions, DICE’s multiplayer shooter has developed into a popular and successful Star Wars experience over the years. Now that the Swedish developers have delivered Battlefield 2042, many fans hoped that the team would now devote themselves to a new part of the Battlefront series. But it looks like there won’t be a Battlefront 3. At least that’s what the often very well-informed Battlefield insider Tom Henderson says.
He writes on Twitter that DICE presented a concept for Battlefront 3 to publisher Electronic Arts, but it was ultimately rejected. One of the reasons was also license costs. “It was rejected because it takes 20 percent more sales to make the same money,” a former DICE employee of Tom Henderson is quoted as saying. The insider also points out that some key developers on the Battlefront team, including Creative Director Dennis Brännvall, have since left the company. This also speaks against an early continuation of the shooter.
The future for Star Wars fans is not entirely bleak, however. Henderson adds that EA is currently developing two unknown Star Wars games. But these are more story-driven single-player titles and not a multiplayer game. It is at least an open secret that one of these titles is believed to be a sequel to Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. However, there has not yet been any confirmation from Electronic Arts on all of this. Incidentally, according to Henderson, DICE is already working on a new battlefield.
