Star Wars: Battlefront: We want to “innovate, try new things,” claims EA boss
Authored by Alex Co
For Star Wars and shooter fans like me, chances are the news that DICE is developing a multiplayer shooter based on the universe has you a little giddy.
I’m of course, talking about Battlefront III, which was revealed officially at E3 last week.
While we haven’t seen any significant other than a CGI trailer and DICE saying it won’t be a “re-painted” Battlefield game, it’s enough to get Star Wars and Battlefield fans flush with excitement on the possibilities.
It seems that excitement might be warranted as DICE will be “trying new things” when it comes to the franchise…at least according to EA Labels president Frank Gibeau.
In an interview with IGN, Gibeau mentions, “But they’re (DICE) not just going to ape what we’ve seen in the past, they’re going to bring their own sensibilities and design ideas.” Gibeau also adds, “We want to innovate. We want to try new things.”
Let’s hope that whatever DICE comes up with, it can be a good game and won’t stand in Battlefield’s shadow.
What would you like to see DICE do for Battlefront III?
