Star Wars: Battlefront reboot due around summer 2015

It's the first of EA's upcoming Star Wars games.

Battlefield developer DICE's upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront reboot is due in summer 2015, EA revealed during a stockholders call today.

EA also noted that Battlefront will be the first of its slew of Star Wars titles to emerge. "We have partnered with Walt Disney and LucasFilm to develop a whole new generation of Star Wars games for the console as well as for mobile and handheld devices," said EA CFO Blake Jorgensen. "The first game that we're focused on is Battlefront. It's a traditional game that's done extremely well and this will most likely come out around the same time as the Star Wars movies start to come out, probably in the summer of '15.

Other announced Star Wars games are in development by Visceral (Dead Space, Dante's Inferno) and BioWare, who's already dabbled in Star Wars with Knights of the Old Republic and its MMO successor The Old Republic.
