Modders are finding all sorts of information digging through video game code these days. Sure you have the DLC on disc or full roster via a demo, but how about assets for cancelled games? I guess some people already knew this, but apparently Slant Six Games was working on a new Battlefront back in 2010. It was eventually cancelled, but some assets from the project have popped up in a rather unlikely place. A Betagames.org user claims to have found a bunch of Battlefront images on the disc for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.
Thanks to NeoGAF, the word has spread like wild fire. Yeah the latest game from Slant Six and published by Capcom has nothing to do with Star Wars. So it seems strange that these assets would end up as part of the RE code. Maybe it was the easiest way for some employees to get the word out. Battlefront was being worked on by Free Radical at one point after Slant Six, but is now rumored to be helmed by Spark Unlimited. Maybe this will help create the buzz needed to get another Battlefront game out on store shelves. Here are those assets.
