Or "could have been" if Kotaku's sources are correct: another "Star Wars" title quietly under development at LucasArts might become another casualty of the Disney buyout--a casualty that could see "Star Wars: Battlefront III" relegated to the list of anticipated games that will never see the light of day.
The game is "Star Wars: First Assault," a shooter-sans-Jedi for Xbox Live which was leaked late last year. That game, quietly being developed at LucasArts, was to serve as a sort of proof-of-viability if it was successful on Xbox Live. If it did well, it would send a signal back to the mothership that gamers would be interested in more "Star Wars" shooter action, allowing LucasArts to move forward with "Battlefront III."
According to Kotaku's source, this wouldn't be the same "Battlefront III" that was nearly complete before getting cancelled, it would be an all-new game, built on the code from "First Assault. »
