The lights are on
The evidence is pretty thin, but the twitter population seems convinced.
There are only two real pieces of evidence that have lead people to believe that Spark Unlimited is working on Star Wars: Battlefront 3. One, on its website Spark Unlimited lists in its job section that, "We are in production on an unannounced
popular game sequel for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC release." The other piece of evidence, is that it simply isn't flat out denying that Battlefront 3 is the title it is working on, on twitter. Every inquiry is met with a, "you'll have ask Lucas Arts about its franchises, we're just a developer, not publisher," response.
It's not much to go on, but it's possible.
Spark Unlimited only has a few games under its belt with Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, and Legendary. It seems more likely that they could be working on a new Call of Duty having experience in the franchise already, but twitter seems to think otherwise. We will know more next year when official announcements start rolling out.
Thanks to Nick for the news tip!

yes! it took lucas arts long enough if they are developing the game
I hope it's true because Star Wars Battlefront has been one of my favorite games of all time.
Meh, Star Wars Battlefront was great, but I'm not pining endlessly for a sequel. But, given that the only worthwhile release of Star Wars gaming lately is TOR, bring it on.
Turning Point was terrible, but Finest Hour was ok and Legendary had potential. I think with that experience and a decent budget, they could pull off a darn good Battlefront game.
God I hope so, I really miss those games I used to play them for days on end over and over again.
I'd be happy if there were at least still servers up for Battlefront two on the Xbox. Oh well...
They *** well better be!
I'm convinced. I loved II
ooo, that's not a good track record.
Hope bf3 doesnt suck like legendary and turning point.
I have high hopes that LucasArts of Spark Unlimited or SOMEBODY will develop and release a Battlefront III. I adore Battlefront. It is on my list of favorite games and Star Wars games.
I would like to say that the rumor started on Battlefront3.net about a year ago. Just check there forums for more info and proof it started there. There is a whole lot of info on the site.
