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.

Yeah, he's talking out his ass. A game's development has a definite event horizon. If it's before it and the publisher doesn't have faith its shaping up to at least recoup their money they pull the plug before they waste anymore dough.

Exactly. Games get released when they are 50% done for financial reasons, not cancelled at 99%. There isn't one person in the industry that believes him when he says this.
