LucasArts furthers its commitment to creating unprecedented next-generation gameplay by teaming with the lauded UK-based developer

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – August 23, 2006 – LucasArts today announced an agreement with Free Radical Design to develop a new video game for next-generation console platforms. Product and release details will be unveiled at a later date.

“In recent years, LucasArts has established itself as one of the hottest publishers on the planet,” said Steve Ellis, Director at Free Radical, “We’re honored that they’re every bit as interested to be working with us as we are to be working with them.”

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?

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 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.
