Well that's good news, no more sub-par games anymore by the sounds of it. (Anyone remember Galactic Battlegrounds?)

I wonder if it will be a star wars game or an original title?

I wonder if it will be a star wars game or an original title? There are some rumors that Free Radical will be making a Mercenaries sequel. Of course that is only so much speculation. My guess is that this won't be a Star Wars game though.

Hmm....we'll wait and see. Though, I think it will probably be an original title.

On Sept. 29 computerandvideogames.com (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=146932&skip=yes) reported Free Radical is making the next installment in the Battlefront series. Of course they didn't name their sources and Free Radical director Steve Ellis said he could not comment on the partnership between Free Radical and LucasArts. Without any official word on the subject I think it's adviseable to take a "wait-and-see" attitude on this.
