About Star Wars: Battlefront (2015)

Developed by DICE (Battlefield), this brand new entry in the long-running series serves as a reboot and will be the first in the main franchise since Pandemic's Battlefront II in 2005. A third game in the series, supposedly in development at Free Radical Design, was never officially announced and - ultimately - cancelled.
