Star Wars: Battlefront 3 rumors circulate


For having absolutely no hard evidence, the entire gaming population seems convinced that Spark Unlimited is working on a new Star Wars: Battlefront 3 game.

Then again, I think fact that Spark Unlimited isn't flat out denying these rumors is a strong indication that these rumors could very well be true.

The first hint, which led to speculation, was on the Spark "Current Job Listings" page.  The description reads:

"Spark is pleased to present our current listings for our two main projects.   We are in production on an unannounced high-profile, popular game sequel for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC release.  We have just entered pre-production on a franchise and genre extending game also for the current generation consoles."

Ignore the second game, currently in pre-production, which is an Action/Horror game.  It's the first game that's actually in production that has led to the belief of a Battlefront 3.  All indications point to it.

Of course, that's not solid evidence, but their Twitter account sure isn't denying anything.  If anything, they are only fueling their fire by responding to fans indirectly about the game.

When a fan blatantly asked, "if the mystery game is Battlefront 3, what do you plan on implementing?", Spark responded:

"Much like movies, bits and pieces of a game can end up on the proverbial cutting room floor. I can't comment on our plans."

Not exactly the strongest evidence, but they didn't shoot down the idea that it's Battlefront 3.  If the rumors were false I'm sure Spark would deny them.  Instead they just keep saying they are holding off until the publisher feels it's the right time for marketing and press to reveal the actual game.

So what do you think?  Is the new game Star Wars: Battlefront 3?
