Star Wars: Battlefront aiming to launch alongside Episode VII

By
Star Wars: Battlefront is aiming to launch alongside Episode VII.

Speaking to investors, EA's Patrick Soderlund said that while the game isn't necessarily linked to the upcoming film, the company would prefer a similar launch window.

"What we're building is more rooted in the traditional Star Wars universe and not so much necessarily linked to the movies being made," Soderlund explained (via VG247).

"And that's just because we wanted to make a game that celebrated the history of Star Wars.

"Obviously there will be things in there that are somewhat tied to the new movie.

"I wouldn't say that we have a particular tie to the movie. Now, obviously we would prefer to be close to the movie, but I wouldn't say that we're directly tied to it."
