Star Wars: Battlefront from EA and developer DICE is currently scheduled for release in summer 2015, EA revealed during its Annual Meeting of Stockholders overnight.
The game is one of many planned by the publisher.
"We have partnered with Walt Disney and LucasFilm to develop a whole new generation of Star Wars games for the console as well as for mobile and handheld devices," said EA CFO Blake Jorgensen.
He continued: "The first game that we're focused on is Battlefront. It's a traditional game that's done extremely well and this will most likely come out around the same time as the Star Wars movies start to come out, probably in the summer of '15.
It's already been confirmed that Visceral is working on a new Star Wars title.
I don't think anyone expected Battlefront to be so far away, with most hoping it may be DICE's major launch for holiday 2014.
