A release of Battlefront 3 was considered safe by fans - at least that was suggested by the successes of Battlefront 2, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order and Star Wars: Squadrons, all of which were playfully convincing. According to an insider, EA may now have rejected a pitch on Battlefront 3.
Battlefront 3, Fans waren sich so sicher, Electronic Arts käme an der Realisierung eines weiteren Star Wars-Shooter nicht vorbei. Und spielten wirtschaftliche Überlegungen keine Rolle wäre das Spiel wohl tatsächlich gesetzt. Nun teilt ein Insider jedoch mit, dass er nach einem Gespräch mit einem Entwickler von DICE erfahren haben will, dass Electronic Arts I rejected a Battlefront 3.
Sales threshold too high
Tom Henderson said on Twitter, Electronic Arts would have rejected the pitch because they would have to sell around 20 percent more copies of Battlefront 3 in order to make the amount that they had generated with Battlefont 2.
Numbers are not mentioned, among other things, because the contractual terms between Disney and Electronic Arts have not been made public. However, it is clear that EA pays fees to the license holder. If the insider's statement is correct, it would give an idea of how immensely the licensing must be reflected in the costs. Battlefront 3 would obviously have been a risk for EA, not least because sales of its predecessor fell short of expectations. And: Until now, EA was the exclusive partner for Star Wars video games. That has recently changed, because now also mixes Ubisoft strong with.
Nevertheless, the following applies: EA could possibly have rejected a Battlefront 3, but EA had in the meantime stated that it wanted to continue developing Star Wars games. The insider said there are currently two games in development, one of which is a single-player story game. It could be the successor to the grandiose Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order act.
Apparently DICE is in the concept phase for a new game, but what it is is unclear. So it doesn't have to be a Star Wars title.
If the rumors come true and Battlefront 3 doesn't actually appear - or not in the foreseeable future - it would be bitter for fans. However, players do not have to do without video games with a Star Wars license entirely. By "opening" the license to other studios as well, significantly more titles could appear in the future than previously thought possible.
