Battlefront 3 Was Apparently Pitched By DICE But Rejected By EA

According to a Tweet thread published by noted Battlefield leaker and freelance writer, Tom Henderson, Star Wars: Battlefront 3 was a pitched title from DICE but was ultimately rejected by EA due to the cost of licensing the Disney owned IP.

The thread goes on to explain that although DICE is not currently working on Battlefront 3 but is instead working on yet another Battlefield title. There are, however, two other Star Wars titles currently in development over at EA. According to Henderson, these titles are story-driven single-player experiences, likely more consistent with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order than with the Battlefront series. We may even see a sequel to 2019’s Fallen Order announced sometime next year. In addition to issues with licensing costs, Henderson contends that the development of Battlefront 3 is even more unlikely since several key developers that worked on previous Battlefront titles have since left DICE, including creative director Dennis Bränvall and core gameplay designer Christian Johannesé.

Finally, Henderson makes it clear that although a new Battlefield title is already in development, the work that has already been put into this title did not take away from the development time of Battlefield 2042 which launched just yesterday, Friday the 19th of November, 2021.
