The Star Wars: Battlefront license has had a great time. The first opus, released in 2015, had conquered the hearts of players, fans of the universe of George Lucas or FPS enthusiasts. In 2017, Star Wars: Battlefront II was released on most platforms and was, unfortunately, accompanied by a heated debate around its loot boxes. Moreover, the reception of this second part was not that expected. The various updates, deployed after its launch, have managed to rectify the situation a little, despite everything. But maybe not enough…
If many expected to see Star Wars: Battlefront 3 arrive, it will not finally be the case. Already last November, insider Tom Henderson announced the color: through several tweets, he showed that EA had rejected DICE’s proposal for a future Star Wars: Battlefront. A rumor that is now confirmed: in the columns of VentureBeat.com, journalist Jeff Grub wrote an article confirming that DICE is currently and exclusively focused on Battlefield 2042, as this title suffers from numerous technical problems and a significant loss of audience.
Battlefront 3 was a pitched title from DICE, but ultimately, the title was shot down by EA due to licensing costs.
“It got turned down because it takes 20% more sales to make the same money”, said one past developer.

Moreover, in the future, it is Respawn Entertainment, at the origin ofApex Legends and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which will take care of the development of the next games stamped Star Wars, under the EA flag. Recall that a sequel to Fallen Order is expected and that a brand new first-person Star Wars has recently been announced. The development studio is also collaborating with Bit Reactor for a third Star Wars game, which will be turn-based tactical.
