Star Wars: Battlefront Online concept art surfaces

Resident Evil developer Slant Six Games reportedly worked on PS3 and Xbox 360 game in 2010 before cancellation.

It appears Star Wars: Battlefront III is not the only entry in the series LucasArts cancelled before even making an official announcement. Siliconera has posted a batch of concept artwork for Star Wars: Battlefront Online, a canceled title that was rumored to be in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City developer Slant Six Games was reportedly working on Battlefront Online in 2010 before its cancellation. It is not clear what stage of development Battlefront Online was in when LucasArts decided to scuttle the project, or why the company chose to not pursue it further.

The concept art for Battlefront Online shows off familiar Star Wars environments, characters, weapons, and vehicles. The images are available below and at Siliconera.

Oh Man, They cancel the Battlefront games, no Xwing Reboot, No Republic Commando 2, Meanwhile, Chris Roberts is bringing Star Citizen, a Wing Commander Spiritual Succesor, Sony just brought out Planetside 2, Piranha games with Mechwarrior Online are reviving the franchise, Crytek are working on Warface, a scifi shooter, so, no hint seen here, Lucasarts? really? way to go guys...

It's interesting how Lucasarts has ignored the mass outcry for a BF3. It's everywhere. Everyone want's one. Lucasarts are just shooting themselves in the foot frankly. It's like setting on a gold mine refusing to open the door.

All the games we want and would pay for, AKA the games we don't get.  Oh well, life moves on.

i really wish that now disney owns the rights to re-release the star wars games 

 

jedi knight-outcast + academy in HD+online 

 

make battlefront 2 HD with online support 

 

it's not that hard rendering games to the xbox arcade/play station ps2 classics 

 

Especially if they WERE on those consoles in previous generation!

Nothing of value was lost. Slant Six is one of the most terrible devs this gen.

I don't think I want Slant Sux making a Battlefront game after the way they butchered the Socom name. I miss Battlefront a lot, and would want to see a third game realized, but this news isn't anything helpful. Whoopee. Another Battlefront game cancelled years ago. Oh! And here's some artwork left behind that just happened to surface now. Do you feel the pain yet you worms?!

Considering that the developer was Slant Six Games (Raccoon City anyone?) and that it was an online only game, the cancellation might actually be a blessing in disguise.

since titles with 'online' usually mean 'online only', I don't really care. because for me it ain't battlefront unless it's got bots.

Another Battlefront game and a sequel to Republic Commando. I'm sure we all can agree here.

Another Battlefront game and a republic commando requel...two things I want to see before I get and job and put a lower priority on gaming.

I dont care what was cancelled. I dont care why it was cancelled. I dont care who bought you out. I dont care what was messed up, lied about, or financially implausible. The only thing I care about is another Star Wars game of the same caliber as Battlefront 2. It doesn't even have to be Battlefront 3. Take the formula and rename it "Star Wars : 'Splodey lazers and stuff 12" for all I care. Just give me an experience that can stand proud next to Battlefront and RepCom. Enough with the Jedi. Enough with the Unleashed nonsense. Enough. 

 

Oh and a KOTOR 3 would be nice too. Or Republic Commando 2.

Hell if this game needed funding I'm fairly certain it would make even more than $1 million just from donations. Come on LucasArts, PLEASE make another Battlefront, or at least remaster BFII. The gaming community should do a formal petition. Where do I sign?

Why don't they make quality star wars games?!?!?!?!

 

Oh yeah, THAT WOULD MAKE SENSE!  Wouldn't want to do that, would we!?!?!?!?

Great last gen Star Wars games: Rogue Squadron II and III, KOTOR I and II, The Clone Wars, Bounty Hunter, Battlefront I and II, Republic Commando, and Jedi Outcast.

 

Great current gen Star Wars games: Nothing.  Force Unleashed and The Old Republic were decent.  That's it.

 

Anyone else see the difference here or is it just me?  LucasArts has gone downhill so fast.  Star Wars 1313 better be one of the best damn games of 2013 or else my faith in this company is officially just dead.

Why do they cancel all of these? I would have bought them. Tons of people would have bought them! I spent years playing Battlefront II offline, and I would really like to play online with my friends.

Two different Star Wars Battlefront games lost, and sadly, this generation would have been PERFECT for them.

No. There is no way that I will support an Online-Only version of Battlefront.

While I am upset that another battlefront game was canceled, thank God it was Slant Six's game that got dumped.

 

After Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, I am surprised that company still exists.

I think Star Wars The Old Republic would do PERFECT on consoles with a little design changes. First off, give it keyboard and mouse support. DO NOT CHANGE THE GAMEPLAY ANY! Next, The Old Republic kind of felt like a single player game with online elements, so Instead of having it be an mmo, keep the same game, but make it single player, with 5 player optional co op. Kind of like Borderlands 2, you would have the option to open your game up to other players, and they could join in if you need help, but still have the option to play offline by yourself. Keep the dungeons and raids, PVP, etc, but let all of that be the online aspect of it. Keep the dungeons 5 player and the raids 10 player (at least i think raids in this game are 10 player). Have an option in the game like a dungeon/raid finder.  The Old Republic is a GREAT game with a gripping story, and great gameplay. Put it on the console with what I said above, and you would reach a greater audience, and make for the first great Star Wars game this current generation of consoles. The reason SWTOR kind of failed and went free to play, is because it felt like a single player game, with online elements, and it was the first mmo to have a story line, with dialogue, instead of text. People that play an mmo want to play with their friends, grind for gear, level, and boost their character. They dont want to play for the story.  At least I dont. Thats why if this was made single player on consoles, with online elements it would sell. Its made by Bioware, who made Mass Effect. With all the Mass Effect fans out there, they would be dying to play a Star Wars game. The Mass Effect fans would be enough alone to make this game sell good, plus the Star Wars fans. Just my opinion.

 @DarthLod Didn't they say that it was already in an advanced state when they cancelled it for...uh, reasons I can't remember? I think that was back in ´08 I think.

Dam you beat me to it! I agree, i wouldn't want the people who made Raccoon City to be involded with Battlefront Online.

The idea sounds great though!

 @GOGOGOGURT I be to differ, KOTOR l & ll were quite successful amongst fans as well as Battlefront l & ll. As of recent, they have made games that a lot of people haven't agreed upon but to say "Why don't they make quality Star Wars Games" is a bit harsh.

 @Superzone Bounty Hunter got sad reviews but I loved it. I'm hoping 1313 will be a similar experience
