The lights are on
Gamers have not quite gotten over the fact that Free Radical Design was once working on Star Wars: Battlefront III before the developer shut down. The dream lives on in this leaked footage of the game's pre-alpha build.
YouTube user Borman18 has posted the footage below from a very early March 2008 360 version of the game, which has been quickly ported over from the PC. Although it's unoptimized for the console, the series normal mix of ground/air combat is in full effect.
Studios such as Pandemic and Rebellion Developments have been tied to the project since Free Radical's demise, but the game's current fate is unknown.
For details on what we'd like to see if and when Battlefront III comes out, check out our feature on the game.

***.... now lets make the real thing :(
Looks cool. Hope the game is under development.
MY CHILDHOOD!!!!!! i definitely want a 3rd installment of the series!!!
Now lets see what it looks like gold
I would love to see a battlefront 3. You know there are two spin-offs on psp
I still pop in Battlefront 2 every so often and go on a week long binge of that being the only game I play. Would love a new one with all the current bells and whistles.
I loved battelfront it was my first shooter. I hope it gets out of dev hell
man i loved the first two
he should sell this.
I'm gonna go cry in a corner now...
Meh. This needs a lot more work. Too bad they did all this for nothing
I clicked on this thinking it meant it was coming out soon, sadly mistaken.
If only... it was being made :(
This needs fixing.
Does this mean SWB3 is gonna come out before I graduate college?
No way Lucasarts would abandon this completely, it will get made eventually, maybe even for next-gen consoles.
They should make it, Battlefront was one of my favorite games.
HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!! I think i am going to cry i have been waiting so long just for at least a chance of a new one cause i just replayed them on my PS2 I will buy this right then i will pre-order it if this will actually come out me and my many friends who love this game will all play and holy crap they will have online!!!!!!
