Ex Lucasarts employee responds to 99% complete statement

#1 Edited by connerthekewlkid (1833 posts) -

So unsuspectingly a Lucasrts employee has finally responded to the allegations of battlefront 3 begin 99% and his response is kind of hilarious

This 99 percent complete stuff is just bullsh*t," the ex-employee told GameSpot. "A generous estimate would be 75 percent of a mediocre game."

He also went on to say that couldn't meet deadlines for the game and used half their assets for the game to try and work on haze

So i know we all pretty much though all of this already but it is still interesting to hear

We are living in a world where you cannot play Star Wars Battlefront OR Timesplitters on next-gen consoles via a bloody online service. Get it fixed. NOW!

Yeah, it was obviously BS used to drum up re-interest in the game.

And we all know how well that went for Silicon Knights when they did the same thing for X-Men Destiny!

But like you said, we all knew this was just some BS to save face and try and make it seem like Free Radical was anything but mismanaged during the end.

I can't really trust anonymous sources especially ones that seem like they are out for blood and not just to clarify information, but I do believe the finish production was likely closer to 75% then 99%.
