Star Wars: First Assault Revealed, Originally Slated as Predecessor to Battlefront 3
As of now, however, it doesn’t seem to be on the cards for release.
Some time ago, a listing for Star Wars: First Assault was found and it was an unannounced shooter for Xbox Live. Now, it’s been revealed to be a downloadable multiplayer game that was supposed to come out in Spring. It features 8 versus 8 gameplay, where one team controls Rebel soldiers and another controls a team of Stormtroopers, fighting across planets like Bespin and Tatooine.
But more interestingly, according to those who know the project, if First Assault sold well – assuming it isn’t going to be released any time soon – then it won’t be long before we see the eagerly requested Star Wars: Battlefront 3. OF course, considering the fact that even projects like Star Wars 1313 are in limbo, it’s hard to tell.
In fact, the Star Wars franchise seems pretty empty right now aside from the new movies slated to release in the coming years under Disney. The company recently announced that there would be no new Clone Wars episodes on Cartoon Network. Here’s hoping the coming months are brighter for Star Wars fans.
