Star Wars’ far, far away release date

During EA’s E3 press conference, we got a very, VERY brief snippet on DICE’s Star Wars shooter, Battlefront.  The crowd went wild!  But don’t expect to actually see the game anytime soon.

EA CFO, Blake Jorgensen, stated at the EA shareholder meeting that DICE’s Battlefront:

“will most likely come out around the same time that the Star Wars movies start to come out, probably in the summer of ’15.”

So, does this mean that Battlefront will tie in with the JJ Abrams Star Wars: Episode VII?  Or are they just going to share in each other’s hype?  This release date isn’t much of a surprise – we knew that they weren’t going to release it during this financial year, which would have been before 1 April 2014.  I suppose we’ll see what Disney, or is it DICE/EA, have on offer at the next E3.  In the meantime, I suppose you’ll just have to make due with Angry Birds: Star Wars.

For those who have forgotten the teaser trailer, or have 33 seconds to kill, here it is again:

    Summer of 2015? That’s so damn far away that they’ll probably screw it up… again!

    Please people of the world… stop screwing up the Star Wars games!! We need another decent one at some stage… soon preferably.

      I can’t do any more bad news. After hearing Trivium’s terrible new single I’m a bit fragile concerning bad news.

    • Rock789

      Hell yeah! And they better get it right! On a seperate note, please let Bioware’s Star Wars game be as epic as the Mass Effect series! The thought of it just… well, it makes me happy…

  • Admiral Chief Minion 47

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    WHY MUST I WAIT???

  • Trevor Davies

    Being released at the same time as the movie? So if it’s not ready, it’ll be pushed out because spreadsheets are cool & we can “beta” test it.

  • GriAulE

    Oh hell yes! Finally! I have been waiting YEARS for this!!!

    Mwahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!
