We haven't heard anything on the subject of Star Wars: Battlefront 3
in quite some time -- so long, in fact, that we had nearly forgotten all about it. But when a forumgoer pointed out to Battlefront3.net
that a casting director named Chris Marazzo noted on his personal website
that, "After casting over 200 commercials and various projects in NY and LA, including most recently Star Wars: Battlefront 3
with Lucas Arts," the rumor popped right back up onto our radar. The folks at BF3.net asked Marazzo about his involvement with the title and got a somewhat straightforward, if not partially confusing, response. "The original title was Battlefront 3
, but it evolved into Star Wars Empire at War: Forces of Corruption
... however, Battlefront 3
is also in development. "
There's a possibility we'll find out more about a new entry in the Battlefront
series this evening when the Spike VGAs premiere information
on what's next for the Star Wars gaming franchise. In the meantime, we've contacted LucasArts for comment and will update this post if we hear more.
