LOS ANGELES — The Star Wars shooter that we all knew Electronic Arts would make is happening.

At its pre-Electronic Entertainment Expo media briefing today, the publisher confirmed it is making Star Wars: Battlefront. Battlefield developer DICE is producing the game.

The publisher didn’t show the title in action, but it did tease it with the foot of the All-Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) walker famous from the Battle of Hoth in Star Wars IV: The Empire Strikes Back.

This Star Wars game is likely still very early in development. Electronic Arts only acquired the license in May.
