Star Wars Battlefront Not to Tie in to Episode VII

Since the announcement of the next Star Wars Battlefront game, many have been wondering if it will tie in to Episode VII and in what ways. We now have a new report

Star Wars Underworld has this to say:

Executive Vice President of EA Studios Patrick Soderlund recently spoke about how the game may or may not be connected the the upcoming film:

“We’ve shown parts of the game to date. You know what were building is more rooted in the traditional Star Wars universe, not so much linked to the movie being made.” He continues, “We wanted to make a game that celebrates the history of Star Wars. We don’t have a particular tie to the movie, but obviously we would prefer to launch Battlefront sometime close to when the movie launches,”

This is not a definite shut down of the idea but it looks like we won’t be seeing any maps, characters and/or ships from Episode VII in Star Wars: Battlefront – at least not at the start. It’s possible there might be some downloadable content later. We can’t ever say for sure until time proves it right or wrong.

However, if there is not going to be an Episode VII tie-in to Star Wars Battlefront, what do you think we will see from the story? So far, it looks like it will mostly be focused on the Original Trilogy films.
