Ahhhh, Star Wars Battlefront 3. That great “White Wale” of the gaming world. It’s been years since we’ve last seen sure signs of you, but the rumors have started to swell again, and this time… they’re actually legitimate. As we reported a few weeks ago, Spark Unlimited is developing a secret Sci-Fi shooter and no one’s been able to determine what it is. At first, we dismissed this claim as typical rumor and speculation, but it’s really starting to make sense now.
The most recent news in this whole SWBF 3 debacle comes to us from the recent Game Developers’ Conference held in San Francisco. While there, Spark Unlimited made a bit of a spectacle by gallivanting around town with an undivulged publisher… which independent sources have confirmed to be LucasArts… as well as their pretty obvious tweets. The Spark crew apparently dined with the Battlefront publishers and then went out for a night of clubbing at a LucasArts themed Infusion Lounge. Check out the tweets below… and take special notice of how close everything is to LucasArts’ head quarters.
Alright, I’ll be the first to admit, all of this seems like a ton of speculation, which it is, but… there’s definitely something going on here. After playing ‘connect the dots’ in this grand mystery, I’ve got to say, it looks like Spark really is making SWB 3. Why am I so sure? Well, if you haven’t been convinced by the evidence thus far, then just check out this teasing tweet that Spark sent out when they refused to confirm whether or not this unannounced title would be showed at E3…
So what do you guys think? Is Battlefront 3 finally going to come out? Or is this just a bunch of silly detective work?
