Electronic Arts’s swedish video game developer, DICE aims to “build the best Star Wars game ever created.”, according to general manager, Karl-Magnus Troeddson.
Speaking with MCV in its latest issue, Troeddson says, “Historically DICE hasn’t worked on licenses that are not our own. So this is different for us.
If someone came to us with another licence then we’d probably say no but, in this case, Star Wars has a very special place in our heart. So when the chance to work on this game came up, we grabbed it.
But that comes with different kind of dependency that we haven’t had for a long time as we’re working with someone else’s IP.
But LucasFilm has been absolutely spectacular. Everyone is approaching this with the same idea – that we are going to create the best Star Wars game ever.”
He adds, “We are trying to surpass what we’ve done in the past. We don’t shy away from wanting Battlefield to be the preferred choice in the first person shooter genre.
When we approach something like Battlefront there’s only one way for us to think about it and that’s: we are going to build the best Star Wars game ever created, if nothing else because Star Wars deserves it.”
Star Wars: Battlefront is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
