After the big kick-off with Star Wars Celebration’s Battlefront Reveal and today’s Battlefront Dev Diary many gamers are split into two groups; those who are foaming at the mouth and throwing their money at the screen versus those who are calling foul, b.s., or much less friendly words towards their screens in disbelief and perhaps jaded but justified distrust. In the following RealGamerNewz Podcast we sit down and discuss whether or not gamers should think about pre-ordering the game at this point, which is what EA Games is suggesting everyone get ready to do right now. We also speak about all of the details thus far that are known about the game to be certain, which it turns out is not very much information at this time. DICE and their history developing games is discussed as well as the legacy of the Battlefront series.
In this Podcast we brought on RGN contributors who share differing views but are both determined to eventually play this game to see it for themselves, and we have a peaceful discussion which often breaks down into a debate showing both sides. One thing’s for sure, the pressure is definitely on for DICE and EA to surpass the partially complete, leaked, and cancelled Battlefront III that LucasArts was developing. Take a listen to the show below, do the research yourself, and make up your own mind. Thanks in advance for listening!

Uncharted series Writer and ex-Naughty Dog Creative Director Amy Hennig (who switched over to the dark side peacefully in a recent job change) will be creating a new Star Wars game with Visceral Games under the EA Games label for new rights owner Disney who will lay the responsibility of a new Star Wars Battlefront among other upcoming products upon publisher EA Games and some of their development studios including DICE (who are working on the next Battlefront game).
But what exactly are Amy Hennig and Visceral Games up to in the long term?
Reports are hitting today (mainly based on job listings) that put Amy Hennig in the spotlight again and claim that the project she is working on for the Star Wars universe will have extremely high fidelity graphics and a cinematic action blend of gameplay that many expect to resemble the Uncharted series in its fluidity from moment to moment as well as dynamic levels. Some of you may remember an RGN Podcast Discussing SW1313’s Indefinite Hold Situation. There has been a petition going on Change.org for EA and Disney to finish Star Wars 1313 (Over 8,200 signatures at the time of this writing).
For those who are having a hard time seeing significance in whether or not Amy Hennig / Visceral Games are working on Star Wars 1313 or a new game based on that, keep in mind that the same technology behind the cinematic feel of the unfinished Star Wars 1313 project is advanced and being used in future films. Before the LucasArts closure, the game was shown with a few small but effective scenes that were completely fleshed out and actually existed in final product build quality.
Take a look at the video below, and get hype. This Rumor seems like the best possible scenario, but in the least we can say that the teams working on Star Wars games for EA, Disney, and the fans will be surely influenced by the Star Wars 1313 project and what it represented to gamers.

In a stunning report this morning it has come to the light that Disney has laid off all LucasArts employees and cancelled “all current projects” this includes Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault which were highly anticipated titles being regarded as the ultimate comeback for the Star Wars video game titles. The Studio LucasArts has been completely disbanded and any results in attempting to create these games will now be met with licensing fees and entirely different teams making different games. Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault as we know them are now in IP limbo.
We will bring you more updates as the industry reacts to this and ask Star Wars fans to remain hopeful and make your reasonable demands, for these games to be completed, heard by Disney loud and clear in the comments section. We also look forward to seeing what the LucasArts team is capable of creating coming out of this financial disaster and wish them the best finding their new place in the game biz.

The crew got together to talk about a lot of topics. We go through talks of the next Call of Duty coming from the developers who created the mammoth title. There’s also Star Wars talk with late-breaking news about the Star Wars 1313 title concerning its indefinite hold. We will talk a lot about the major game publishing companies and their relationship to their developers as we debate whether or not certain situations in the industry are improving.
