Star Wars: Battlefront release date window is 'summer 2015'

DICE's first Star Wars title 'most likely' to release alongside the new movie, says EA exec

EA's new Star Wars: Battlefront game is "most likely" to launch in summer 2015.

So said EA CFO Blake Jorgensen during a shareholders meeting today.

In a rundown of EA's upcoming major releases, Jorgensen said that the DICE-developed shooter "will most likely come out around the same time as the Star Wars movies start to come out, probably in the summer of '15".


That would cast the game's launch around the same time as the first entry of the new Star War trilogy, which was put into production following Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012.

Nothing but confirmation of its development and a small teaser trailer has been revealed of EA rendition of Star Wars: Battlefront.

The game is in development at DICE's core Stockholm studio with "veteran" Battlefield developers at the helm, exec VP of the EA Games label Patrick Söderlund confirmed to CVG recently.

As well as the Sweden-headquartered outfit, Visceral Games and BioWare are also set to develop Star Wars games following the recent agreement of a multi-year deal between EA with Disney.
