I think it has because lucasarts the games section of lucas's empire is pouring lots of money into some unannouned game which could be starwars battlefront III (my hope lies in that force because that game was a joy to play anytime online because you had ai backing you up and could be on teams too).
I would so pay for that game.
One thing on my bucket list is to convince them to let me code it or beta test it even unoffical versions. Wait if i play my cards right i might get to if their is an ea partnership in the mix because of combat testing.
