DICE is "well into development" on next-gen multiplayer shooter Star Wars: Battlefront, EA Games Label president Frank Gibeau has revealed.

Gibeau discussed DICE's progress on the title during EA's FY14 Q1 earnings call earlier this evening, following the game's announcement at E3 last month.

"We showed 22 seconds of where we're going with it and the fan response was very positive," commented Gibeau. "The DICE team is well into development on that product already, so we feel very bullish about our shooter rotation over the next several years."

Star Wars: Battlefront also "has a third-person component to it", Gibeau confirmed, suggesting the game will retain the previous games' option to switch between first and third-person perspectives.

The game is said to be being created by the Battlefield team using the Frostbite 3 engine.

A release date for the title has yet to be announced.

"we feel very bullish about our shooter rotation over the next several years" - is it just me or is that a worrying sentiment?

If they keep the good parts of the originals whilst expanding enhancing and fixing certain issues, i could see this as a terrific shooter that will last for ages.
