Free Radical: Cancelled Battlefront III was "99% Finished"

NowGamer has word from Free Radical Design cofounder Steve Ellis on Star Wars Battlefront III, the cancelled sci-fi action sequel for which footage emerged earlier this year. Ellis talks of the encouragement they took from the reaction to the videos and claims that the game was in the polishing phase when it was cancelled, which doesn't seem to mesh perfectly with him saying this was "for financial reasons: "We had a 99% finished game that just needed bug fixing for release. It should have been our most successful game, but it was cancelled for financial reasons. I'm happy that people did at least get to see what we were working on and share the team's enthusiasm for it." Thanks nin via Kotaku.

Yep, that video on youtube posted a while ago says the opposite


Did anyone say that the youtube video was the last build before it was cancelled? (or even how close to the youtube build was from the time it was cancelled?)

I honestly don't know, but the video could have easily been 6 months to a year before that happened, and is probably not an indication of the state of the game just prior to cancellation
