We were told last week that Star Wars: Battlefront III was “99 percent finished” from Free Radical co-founder Steve Ellis. Just recently a former LucasArts employee who has gone unnamed stepped up and said that there was two sides to every story.
“This 99 percent complete stuff is just bulls**t,” he told GameSpot. “A generous estimate would be 75 percent of a mediocre game.”
The report is quite lengthy, but goes into a lot of detail like some of the issues that Free Radical had when developing Battlefront III. The unnamed LucasArts employee claimed that Free Radical wasn’t about to make certain deadlines and also mentioned that resources were taken away from Battlefront III’s development to finish Haze.
Steve Ellis wrote up a lengthy statement in reply to the unnamed LucasArts employee while also mentioning that Battlefront IV was in the works as well.
