Star Wars Battlefront 3 [Cancelled Free Radical Version / Proto – Xbox 360 / PS3 / PC]

Star Wars Battlefront 3 [Cancelled Free Radical Version / Proto – Xbox 360 / PS3 / PC]

In 2006, LucasArts announced an agreement with UK-based and now shut down developer Free Radical Design. Although no further announcements were made about the game, it was well known that FRD was working on Star Wars Battlefront 3 for next-generation platforms.

Several issues including delays and “communication problems” made LucasArts cancel the project and leave Free Radical Design without funding. As a result, the studio had to close in December 2008 as publishers showed no interest in either buying or investing into FRD.

While Star Wars Battlefront 3 will be finished at Rebellion Studios, the other FRD game (TimeSplitters 4) will probably not appear in the near future.

In April 2012, more screens and videos from an alpha version of Star Wars Battlefront 3 Free Radical version were shared online by Past to Present Online

Also as we can read from PC Gamer:

Betagames have found remnants of a Battlefront project in the form of images stashed away on the Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City disk. That seems like an odd place to leave some spare files, but Raccoon City developers, Slant Six were rumoured to have been working on the third game in the Battlefront series for a while. The files include a variety of pro-quality loading screens and some odd bits of texture work, including a hideous image of Luke Skywalker’s face stretched out on a 2D plane. Eeeugh.

      I really enjoyed Battlefront 2 in coop, and Free Radical were one of my favourite developers ever.. it’s really sad about what happened to BF3, even if the “new” BF3 could be fun, it will never be the same.

  1. Drake Lake

    It won’t be the same at all because it will probably feel like a PSP port instead of a proper 360/Playstation3/high-end PC game.

    Five bucks says that the ‘transition into space’ video will end up looking grainy, too.

    i’ve been a fan of the battlefront series. i know its a best seller. but why is lucas arts having trouble making up their about selling the game. even if it comes out it should be a “game of the year title. i mean seriously its been 5 years in development

    hey, i was browsing around youtube the other day, and I came across this.

    It looks like one of the animators animation showcases, it has a bit of Timesplitters Future Perfect animations within it, however it does contain Star Wars related content! Possible it’s Battlefront 3.

    You didn’t even try to make this page good. A lot of screenshots are missing and videos too.

    Also the info is ancient.

      This page is from more than 7 years ago, unfortunately Unseen64 is a volunteer project, we don’t have free time to update old articles, if you want to write a new description let us know!

    @momokoma you and the rest did a freakin great job! Even big gaming sites like IGN use unseen as a source, and this is something other must top before starting to critizing you.

    1. ThatMysteriousItem

      They did a good job on a lot of articles (example could be the cancelled Batman videogame) but this article actually needs editing due to outdated info.

      Also Mark, criticising something can lead to improvements.
