Default Star Wars Battlefront III rumors surfacing

Star Wars Battlefront III rumors are after a break starting to surface once again due to some CVs and job listings about a "AAA block buster in well known and loved Sci-Fi setting" which would be a "third person shooter with swords".

So... Space Marine 2?

Make out whatever you like out of it, but personally I am holding my fingers crossed for Battlefront III, for that would be bloody awesome.

Oh how I really want Battlefront III to become reality. I still play the first two every now and again.

Regards,
Jake.

Awesome news. Hopefully it'll be true - I've still got Number 2 lurking about somewhere. Also, I am praying to the God-Emperor that they keep it similar to the first two, and don't change the game completely.

The first 2 are absolute classics, they really only need to update the graphics and some of the units/ space ships/ maps and the game would be fantastic

I would like them to fix jedi so they are really good, but hard to get, just look at what obi and anakin do in clone wars and ep 3, in BF2 i just seemed to find it easier to be a basic ST

I would also like to get heroes in space battles in a classic "serveral fighters have broken off from the main group, come with me, I'll take them myself" style, oh and other objectives for space EG defend death star, break seperatist blockade

It has massive potential if true

What makes you so sure? It wasn't that long ago really. Number 2 was 2005, since then Renegade Squadron was released in 2007 and Elite Squadron in 2009 for the handhelds. Older game series have been revived in the past so there's no reason to completely rule the chance of a 3rd just yet surely?

Jake.

For another series i'd say yes but for Battlefront which has had so many false rumours, company switch arounds and abandoned attempts, I doubt it will happen anytime soon. Or at all.

Truthfully I think this game will become the new Duke Nukem Forever, it'll be released. After many long years.

About damn time something has come up about a possible Battlefront III! Of course they can only do so much coming from Battlefront I and II, but still. I was good, II was a good attempt, but glitches and bugs EVERYWHERE, along with balance issues with the award weapons. Let's see what they do with III. Good find Doelago.

I'd cry tears of joy if they made a third.
The first 2 were my childhood.
I always remember feeling like a badass while playing on Hoth with the settings for team count on 750 or whatever the highest was and doing close air support with the Snowspeeders.
