In the run-up to this year’s E3 Expo, Electronic Arts broke our hearts and confirmed that the DICE-developed Star Wars: Battlefront wouldn’t be released this year. It looks like it won’t be released next year either. The publisher held their Annual Meeting of Stockholders yesterday and CFO Blake Jorgensen told the assembled crowd that EA plans to release the next Battlefront alongside the theatrical release of Star Wars Episode VII in 2015:
“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. 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 .”
Jorgensen didn’t mention the company’s other Star Wars project, an untitled game in the works at Visceral, but presumably it’ll be released after Battlefront.
