[Rumor] Prequel to Star Wars Battlefront III in development, but may never be released
According to sources close to Kotaku, an unannounced Star Wars game that started to show up last year in several listings was leaked to still be in development and would be called Star Wars First Assault.
According to some rumored details, First Assault would act as a prequel to Star Wars Battlefront III, support up to 16 players for online, and would be a downloadable title. The game itself would only be a prequel for timeline purposes and not actually be directly connected to a potential Battlefront III game.
There is a big catch though involving the game may end up not getting released due to the current problems facing LucasArts. Although it was also rumored if the game is ever released and sells well, Disney and/or LucasArts would lean favorably for Star Wars Battlefront III being the next Star Wars game developed.
