EA CFO, Blake Jorgensen, shed some light on the long awaited Star Wars: Battlefront during this week's Electronic Arts earnings call. Jorgensen stated that Star Wars: Battlefront, being developed by the DICE, will receive a similar sized push as their successful Battlefield franchise.

Star Wars: Battlefront is set to release before Christmas of 2015, which coincidentally lines up with the release of the latest movie in the franchise - Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens, which airs on December 18th. Although the game is not directly related to the movie, DICE have confirmed it will share similar universal themes, characters and items as seen in the trailer.

Tying the two releases together will be extremely big for the Star Wars franchise. DICE have promised to share more about the large project in the upcoming months, but it has been said that the release of Star Wars: Battlefront will be a "very large activity," on level with Battlefield.

"We're extremely excited about that," Jorgensen said about Battlefront. "We think there's huge potential for that title. More to come in the next couple of months on that as more about the movie comes out as well as more about our title comes out. You should consider that a very large activity for us [this year] and a very large focus--similar to how we've thought about Battlefields in the past."

According to EA Battlefront will not be the first Star Wars project they're working on. Visceral Games are also producing an open world game related to the series. EA have welcomed Naughty Dog creative director Amy Hennig to work on the new open world project.
