Star Wars Battlefront III was 99% finished before getting canned
The Star Wars Battlefront series is often celebrated by both Star Wars and shooter fans for being among some of the best sci-fi games ever created. This is why the news of the would-be third installment’s cancelation was seen as such a big loss. Well, some newly revealed details about the cancelation are bound to make fans feel even worse.
oh god why its the mega man legends 3 prototype all over again if its all most done let them release it i love battlefront
Hand the build off to someone else!
This pains me greatly. For too long I have waited for Battlefront 3 to hit store shelves, long have I waited to once again destroy my foes in the Star Wars Universe once more. But it tis not to be.
very odd indeed, even if its normal practice on this generation doing the exact opposite
i assume its exageration, it could have been around 60-70% completion, but i can just tell myself it was for the best since free radical's battlefront psp games lack polish, even if i know that is not true and my heart desires battlefront 3
Wow....this is a real bummer, Makes you wonder if its source code of the game is around the net somewhere ya know?
Well then, I hope Disney will soon take a look at it, and give it a green light sometime!
And plenty of games aren't even 19% finished when they hit store shelves (Obsidian and Bethesda have time and time again proven that)
Nope. Nope. Nope. Not true. A game is not 99% finished before its even been announced.
joke's on you pal, these events transpired way before the Disney buyout.
The Star Wars Battlefront 3 new are way older my friend
"It was canceled for financial reasons.” AKA Disney wanted WAAAAAAY too much money for Star War rights to release the game. FUCK YOU DISNEY!!!!!!
Someone needs to pick this up and get this released... i love battlefront
Wow. That sucks. Then again, if it was 99% finished, that would mean they still have the programming and codes saved somewhere. Who's to say it won't be released later.
I agree. The one hour video of the game looked honestly bad. I know it's a pre-release build, but if that's 99% then I'm almost happy they pulled the plug. I'd rather not ever have it than have it and be disappointed with it.
99% seems way too high of an estimate and either meant the game was a bug-filled mess or someone screwed up big time if that wasn't worthy of a release.
I think it was mentioned before by others of being in the 60s-70s or assumed based on stuff that was leaked.
Instead we get Kinect Star Wars. Lucasarts can collapse under it's own horrible ideas. They couldn't even think that Battlefront III could easily rival Call of Duty because of the fact it's Star Wars?
No more of this kid-friendly nonsense, Star Wars needs the same kind of reboot Batman and James Bond received in this modern day and age.
The problem is that they couldn't sell the game since they have no money for marketing, mass produce the DVD (or Blu-Ray for PS3) note that this was before Kickstarter existed so really they were in a tight spot, and that's the problem with Publishers they have nearly absolute control over the development and how to deploy the game, if they want to cancel it, they can even if it's 100% complete.
No way it was that close to done. Even the most greedy of greedy pull the plug at 99%, no way.
