Star Wars Battlefront is an action shooter video game developed by LucasArts, with additional work from EA DICE, and published by LucasArts. The game, based on the Star Wars franchise, is the fourth major release in the Star Wars: Battlefront sub-series, and is considered a reboot to the previous games, instead of a sequel. The game was released worldwide in November 2015, and received mixed reviews from critics. Critics praised the game for its game play, visuals and high production values but was criticized for its lack of content on both single player and multiplayer modes. Despite this, it was a commercial success, selling over 13 million copies.
In May 2013, publisher Electronic Arts obtained rights to co-develop Star Wars games along with LucasArts for gaming consoles, and its subsidiaries DICE, Visceral Games and BioWare started work on Star Wars games. LucasArts first acknowledged the game at Electronic Arts' E3 2013 press conference, along with a teaser trailer. The game is built with the Frostbite 3 engine; studio head Ada Duan stated that the game would be "re-interpretation of what Battlefront would become", while still incorporating elements from the previous two games. As such, LucasArts did not brand the new game as a sequel to Battlefront III, but a reboot of the franchise. Duan said that the game almost wasn't developed, but that staffers at DICE lobbied to be given the project; he called DICE's development of Battlefront "a match made in heaven"
