Star Wars Battlefront set for holiday 2015

The reboot of the Star Wars Battlefront Franchise as a first-person shooter was expected in late 2014. It was pushed to mid 2015 but has now been permanently (hopefully) set for a "Holiday 2015" release window by EA which means it can arrive anywhere between October and December 2015. A holiday 2015 release will allow the game to feed off the excitement of the release of Star Wars Episode VII which is set to come to theaters worldwide on December 18, 2015. A double whammy of video game and movie flavoured Star Wars? Its safe to say I am exited. Star Wars Battlefront will be released for Xbox 360, Playstation 4 and PC.
