By Spencer . December 12, 2012 . 5:32pm


The rumors are true, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City developer Slant Six was working on a Star Wars game back in 2010. Lucasarts hired Slant Six to make Star Wars Battlefront Online for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.


Star Wars Battlefront Online was canceled by Lucasarts before it was ever announced, but we were able to obtain a few pieces of concept art. Here’s what Slant Six wanted to do with Star Wars Battlefront Online.

    Honestly SW:BF was the only shooter I have ever enjoyed and I would love to be able to play online with people since I have the PS2 version.

    • I think the PC version of Battlefront II still has online. It’s pretty cheap, too.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        its still slightly alive

  • Pockystix

    is it going to be as bad as ORC?

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      To be fair, it’s not a great game but it’s not the unplayable mess that everyone said it was. It’s also a blast to play with other players.

  • Godman

    Wait would this be considered an MMO? Because BFI and II had online (though barely)

    • The Online, that is, the multiplayer aspect in general was the best thing in all the Battlefront titles. Calling this game by its current title wouldn’t actually change a single thing! And, if Slant Six stuck to the previous gameplay style while adding a bit more, this title could have done better than ORC. I’m really sure of it!

      But alas, this game being called “Battlefront Online” pretty much doomed it before its birth. If it was called by any other subtitle, I’m sure anyone would have a different tone, don’t you agree?

      • Godman

        lol yeah
        But it still would have gotten my attention just from that awesome art

  • Solomon_Kano

    Never thought I’d be happy to hear a Battlefront game be cancelled. Slant Six’s record speaks ill for how this would’ve turned out. Why Battlefront Online though? The games always had online play, so what would distinguish this from those? Was this to be a console MMO? That would’ve been interesting, but it’s not what I’d have wanted to see with the series. Ah well. More pipe dreams.

    Concept art looks nice though.

  • Brunstad Exicuren

    Hmmm, interesting, i’d guess it’s that they wanted to make a massive standalone version of the mod Moviebattles II for SWBF2

  • pho_Enix

    This series is doomed, first Battlefront 3 and now this.

  • greatest game ever

    • Liam Quetzalcoatl Dillingham

      Of all time


    Thanks for the blue balls.

    • zid

      Ain’t that the fucking truth?

  • Jon ‘Jonny’ Preece

    make it dammit. the people want it
