Star Wars: Battlefront to arrive alongside Star Wars VII in summer 2015

Publish date:

EA and developer DICE have confirmed a rough release window for multiplayer title Star Wars: Battlefront.

The game is due out in summer 2015 – which more than likely means it will be out around the same time as Disney's much anticipated Star Wars VII movie.

"We have partnered with Walt Disney and LucasFilm to develop a whole new generation of Star Wars games for the console as well as for mobile and handheld devices," EA CFO Blake Jorgensen told investors, as reported by Videogamer.

"The first game that we're focused on is Battlefront. It's a traditional game that's done extremely well and this will most likely come out around the same time as the Star Wars movies start to come out, probably in the summer of '15.”

Can we also conclude from that that Disney is not planning a console-based movie title? Or will that be reserved for smartphones?
