Star Wars Battlefront 3 LEAKS: Release Date, News, Cancelled, Platforms And Everything We Know

Star Wars Battlefront 3 could be on the way!

Star Wars Battlefront 2 recently appeared on the Epic Games Store for free as titles tend to do on the popular platform.

Over 19 million players claimed the exciting multiplayer title, so what does that mean for the franchise?

It likely means more is coming for it in the future and new leaks are suggesting exactly that.

Here's what we know about Star Wars Battlefront 3.

Leaks

Rumours of a third Battlefront game have picked up pace as two actors have been spotted in the studio working on motion-capture scenes and scripts.

Who are they you may ask? TJ Ramini, who played Del Meeko and Admiral Garrick Version actor Anthony Skordi.

Ramini posted an image of his motion-capture suit on Twitter.

Release Date

No release date is set yet, but we speculate it will arrive sometime in 2022.

It has been over three years since the last title released.

What Is It?

Star Wars: Battlefront is a series of first and third-person shooter video games based on the Star Wars films.

In the title, players take on the role of soldiers on one of two opposing armies in different time periods of the Star Wars universe.

Originally launched in 2004, there were two titles made in the franchise, but a third was eventually cancelled despite being seemingly finished.

Platforms

The game will likely release on PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X and PC.

What's Next For Battlefront?

Battlefront 2 didn't get off to a great start.

Despite its insanely popular gameplay (credit to DICE for their hard work), it was marred by the controversy around the implementation of microtransactions.

Since then, these issues have been ironed out and it's a much more pleasant experience.

The game was made at the same time The Last Jedi was released, meaning there's still plenty of room for new scenarios, battlegrounds and enemies to face off against from the various films and shows that have released since.

With Battlefield 6 in development, we're expecting an entirely new engine. Since DICE are likely to develop this title again, we can expect Battlefront 3 to share the same engine.
