Battlefront reboot not on PS3 or Xbox 360

Recommended Posts

EA has revealed that the upcoming Battlefront reboot from DICE will be only be available on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One, in a move that may leave owners of the previous generation of consoles out in the cold. Developers say that dropping the older consoles will allow them to make full use of the Frostbite 3 engine upon which the game is built.

More details about the game are due to be shared at Star Wars Celebration next month, where fans hope to see an official trailer for the game and see some of the gameplay.

The new Battlefront is said to be a reboot of the franchise rather than a continuation, is scheduled for release at the end of 2015 to coincide with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Not really that surprising.  This generation of consoles is coming to an end.  Other games have already been announced as next-gen exclusive like Batman; Arkham Knight and the next Mass Effect game (which is also an EA game).

Yep, I've not joined the current gen of consoles yet - I don't get enough time to play consoles to justify the cost right now.

 

It's a change for me, because I had a PS2 from the second batch that came into the UK, and my PS3 was part of the first load of pre-orders. :p

Just as well....if you keep designing games to be backwards compatible, you eventually hold back the game itself with what can and can't be done.  Not an issue...I said that the only thing that would make me buy a PS4 would be a new Battlefront :p

    • Battlefront 4 concept art

      Just came across this Eurogamer article about concept art that has surfaced for the cancelled pre-reboot Battlefront 4 game.
      Did somebody say Emperor Vader?
      Seems like it would have been a pretty interesting "what if" story.
