None; the new Gen systems are too powerful for it. Or that was the arguement for releasing a new BF.

Wait a minute, I thought that Battlefront III was in production. Where do all these "leaked" images come from then? Considering the fact that the first two games broke all kinds of sales records, it would seem a bit stupid not to give a third one a try.

"Leaked"? I've not seen any of that. Most I've seen for anything SW related is a KOTOR MMORPG game coming out for the X-box 360 and PC.

There was a presentation not long ago about it where they showed a starfighter taking off from corisant and entering space (something that I understand has been taken out of the game now unfortunatly). I believe those are the "Leaked" Images that were being mentioned.

From Wikipedia:

Star Wars: Battlefront III is the fourth installment in the Star Wars: Battlefront series (third excluding Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron). It was originally speculated that Free Radical Design would be developing the game, after announcing that they were working on a "Secret LucasArts Project" on August 23, 2006. However on December 18th, 2008, Free Radical Design announced that their company had gone into administration, and that the project had been handed down to Rebellion Developments, the developers behind Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron. On June 7th, 2008, an alleged ex-LucasArts employee came forward to Kotaku and unofficially announced several games in developement, including Star Wars: Battlefront III.

On October 2, 2008, the OFLC listed Star Wars: Battlefront 3 for the Nintendo DS with a PG rating, filed by Activision Blizzard. On December 28, 2008, renders of Star Wars characters surfaced from a laid off employee of Free Radical, bearing the Star Wars Battlefront III watermark. These can be viewed here. On January 15, 2009 footage of Battlefront III was leaked. As well as the updated graphics, there seem to have been some welcomed changes from the first two installments of the series, most notably the ability to fly from ground to space and board orbiting space craft with no loading screens. Unfortunately, the following day some more information was leaked regarding the titles departure from Free Radical and with it the loss of the "complete freedom" that the video showed. Some information also came to light regarding a possible story line which involved a "Dark Obi-Wan Kenobi". It is unknown if this storyline or the "complete freedom" style of play will continue with the title to its new developer, or even if the title is still in production. Recent rumors have surfaced that suggest that Pandemic Studios has picked up on the game because their website lists an untitled project named "Project X".However, with Free Radical now under new ownership under Crytek details on who is currently developing the game are still unclear. Lucasarts has made no official announcement regarding this title as of yet.

There is more information here: http://kotaku.com/5131846/leaked-star-w ... ay-footage

There used to be a video, but it looks like they took it down. Several character images have been "leaked" including a Dark Jedi version of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Here's another news link: http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3172336

Character images of Han Solo with the BF3 watermark: http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/12/tim ... ers-4.html

Character images of Han Solo, Imperial Royal Guard, Palpatine and a Jawa, all with the BF3 watermark: http://www.outpostgamez.com/article-41- ... eaked.html

This one has more images of Han Solo and of a new female bounty hunter character: http://www.europe-nintendo.com/forums/n ... eaked.html

And here are 3 images of the Dark Side Obi-Wan character: http://battlefront3.net/2009/01/star-wa ... an-kenobi/

While none of this means anything if they decide to cancel the development of the game, it gives me hope!!!

Some of the news (or rumor) articles I've read say that Pandemic has taken over the project now that Free Radical has gone under...

Fudge. That sucks! They were doing the "free-roam" ability to the game. If this turns out to be a crappy game, I'm blaming them totally.

Not sure i fully understand the chatter but it seems that a third is a possibility but not a probability right now (hope thats right)???????????????
And i think you guys threw something out there like the amount of space you could move on the battlefield or something i didnt have much time to read had to skim

Also i did hear a year or two ago a new company was supposed to take over making of the game but it never really went anywhere as far as news updates and such
