http://www.battlefront3.net/2010/12/my-response-from-spark-unlimited-vgas-outcome/

Well folks, there's not much I can really say about the outcome of the VGA's this year. A lot of people seemed pretty confident that they would finally be announcing Battlefront 3, and naturally we were all disappointed yet again (although I was happy to hear about the new Elder Scrolls game).

Spark Unlimited has been the big focus the last week or so as well, with multiple theories and even one person, "confirming" on his own that they are the developers. I decided that I would send off an email of my own to Spark Unlimited and I received an email back from one of their Chief Technology Officers.

Now, while I didn't receive back a confirmation email, he didn't deny the fact either. You can interpret his response in any way you see fit, I'm taking it as a good thing and not giving up hope.

Here's what he had to say:

"Everyone keeps asking. Unfortunately, our NDA's (non-disclosure agreement) with publishers prevents us from talking about the products we work on. It's is up the publisher and their marketing/PR engine to determine what information is given out and when. Word on that game really has to come straight from Lucas Arts. You do have to realize that publishers have a plan – be it good or bad – to release information. These days a publisher will typically wait to after the holidays to announce a game. They don't want to cannibalize their holiday sales. So, it if it going to be announced, I would it will be during the announcement season of March through June."

So far the games that Spark Unlimited made so far are Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Turning Point:Fall of Liberty, Legendary

Yes I do know that Turning Point Fall of Liberty was one of the worst Fps games this generation.

Developers who have made some of the worst shooters this gen. Not looking forward to it, but I guess developers could actually make a good game out of nowhere.

I'd rather see devs like Eurocom and Gearbox develop Battlefront 3.

Nope.

No, no, no...I want Battlefront 3, but not like this. Why would LucasArts hire a dev with such a poor history? With any luck this isn't true.

LucasArts have been screwing us over and over again this gen. Just like how Lucas was screwing us over and over again after ep3.

If true, they chose a dev with just about the worst track record out there in terms of FPS.

Average meta-score of their games is just below 55.

There's a need for open battlefields in Battlefront games.

I'm borderline taking that as a confirmation. Surely if they weren't making it they would be allowed to flat out deny the game. I'm hoping if they are making it they have learned from their mistakes.

I say LucasArts should let EA Dice develope the game... I'm just saying, battlefield and battlefront are very similar if you ask me, so why not let professionals make the game?

I want a developer who has a GOOD track record with shooters. Not one with a terrible track record.

Oh and Star Wars Battlefront has always been a TPS, although a FPS option was available in Battlefront II

Well that sucks. I dunno if I would rather have no Battlefront 3 at all, or have one by these guys after their track record. If only DICE could pick up Battlefront. Going back to dreaming about a DICE Battlefront game now.

I'm excited at the prospect of a new Battlefront. It's one of the promenant games of my childhood and I've been waiting 5 years for it. But for it to be made by a developer with such a terrible track record, I really would rather not see a new Battlefront game at all. I just doubt it will be able to stand up the first games.


And as for the FPS TPS argument, I enjoy other first person shooters like CoD, but somehow Battlefront just seems right as a Third Person Shooter.
