The lights are on
We were THIS close to getting a third Battlefront game. Free Radical co-founder Steve Ellis said the game would have been a turning point for the company after falling into development trouble with Haze.
"We were making a game with very high ambition," Ellis said in an interview with gamesTM magazine. "You could start a battle on the ground, jump into a ship and fly into space, continuing on to dock in a capital ship and continue the battle there."
An early version of the game leaked this past April. An hour of additional footage leaked the following July.
"We'd had to build all kinds of new tech and overcome numerous technical challenges and limitations but we had done it. We had a 99% finished game that just needed bug fixing for release," he added.
"It should have been our most successful game, but it was cancelled for financial reasons. I'm happy that people did at least get to see what we were working on and share the team's enthusiasm for it."

They should of launched a kickstarter, the community would've saved them
Show us more! Don't let Luke Skywalker's hideously flattened face be the last thing we remember about this project. <www.pcgamer.com/.../> And on Operation Raccoon City discs, Battlefront shouldn't even be mentioned with that horrible excuse of a spin-off.
in the words of Darth Vader: http://nooooooooooooooo.com/
So instead, we got The Force Unleashed 2...FFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-
Would've been the greatest
i almost want to cry.....
I'll fund the rest!
Why in the *** would a game that was made to completion get scrapped? Someone needs to leak it to someone else who will finish it bc it sounds like a lot of fun. Oh, and I played Haze btw. Wasn't good but didn't completely suck.
Come on Disney, release this game.......COME ON!!!
Soooo y can't someone just take the old files and finish the game? Everyone knows it would still be the (2nd) greatest star wars game ever! (nothing beats Jedi knight 2:Jedi outcast for me, running around as a Jedi with all the powers and epic 10 player battles??? Point made) but seriously though y can't they just finish it? It wouldn't take that long if they're 99% done...just saying.
'sigh' Hearing this makes me depressed. Battlefront II was my game back in the day. To see this one so close to completion and never be released is awful. :(
Ladies and Gentlemen, start the petitions!!
I want another great Star Wars game!
