Star Wars: Battlefront spin-off, First Assault, on hold

Rumour has it that a spin-off to the Star Wars Battlefront series, Star Wars: First Assault, is in development but currently on hold following Disney's acquisition of LucasArts.

Kotaku reports that Star Wars: First Assault is a downloadable 16-player shooter originally planned for a 2013 release.

If First Assault sells well, it could pave the way for a retail release of Battlefront III, said a source who is no longer working on the project.

It's believed that all Star Wars games not directly related to Episode VII are currently on hold.

Would be nice if released on the pS3, and if they made a battlefront like this, id buy it. didn't like the battlefront series because of the awful camera. Looks promising
I would prefer a Battlefront similar to the older ones
I've been playing battlefront 2 a fair bit lately and I would love a new installment.
I used to play Battlefront on PSP with @Beta

The good ol' days.
There are no lasers in this picture D:
PLEASE BATTLEFRONT 3!!!!!!! *_*
oo more starwars :D
more star wars is good but I'd love to see a space sim eventually. Not going to happen though...
The space missions in battlefront 2 were rather satisfying.
Rumour has it that Disney put pretty much everything lucasarts were doing on hold when they took over.

See what happens hey...
