Rumor: Battlefront 3 Technology Lost in Translation

The technology used in yesterday's leaked alpha footage of Star Wars: Battlefront III will die with the end of developer Free Radical's involvement in the project, according to a new report by Spong.

A former Free Radical employee supposedly told Spong: "It's my understanding that the game's been passed to a new developer, but the tech that allowed you to fly from the ground, to air, to orbit, to space dies with Free Radical's involvement."

Added the employee: "The new developer will be making it a cutscene every time you want to transition from ground to space."

Meanwhile, a new rumor out of Videogaming247 places the new home of Battlefront III at Pandemic, the creators of the original Battlefront game. Developer Rebellion had previously been rumored to be the new home of the sequel.
