EA CEO Andrew Wilson has confirmed that the highly anticipated Star Wars: Battlefront will be among the games shown at E3 this year. Wilson also mentioned during an EA investors conference call that the development for Battlefront is “coming along very, very well.” Still, according to Gamespot, there is a lot of work to be done as the game is “far from complete.”
Every now and then, I like to take note of the opinions of the gaming community so I took to the message boards at Gamespot to see how fans are reacting to this news. Some fans are excited; others are worried. Considering that it is DICE developing the game, many fans are expressing their skepticism. As I scrolled through many comments, “Please don’t **** it up” seemed to be the message fans wanted DICE to know. Others are hoping that Battlefront is nothing like the “disaster” that is Battlefield 4.
As we all know, DICE developed Battlefield 4 and to this day, the game is still being patched for its bugs and online issues. It was clearly not finished product upon its release and this of course is a major reason people are skeptical of anything DICE touches.
I’m by no means a Star Wars nut but I am a fan and I am looking forward to Battlefront being shown at E3. Let us hope that Battlefront makes us forget the awful launch and continuous problems of Battlefield 4.
Star Wars: Battlefront will be presented at E3 during EA’s press conference Monday, June 9th.
