Women are confirmed playable
DICE traveled to Skywalker ranch to document everything as early as winter 2012. This game seems to have a 3 year dev cycle (though at the same time very busy)
DICE is very happy doing Star Wars but at the same time scared because they're afraid of upsetting fans, but at the same time they are incredibly motivated and careful so it is made right.
DICE learned the photogrammetry technique while they parallel-developed BF4.
DICE says that they're making use of their battlefield experience in battlefront, but at the same time battlefront has to have unique traits and be its own game or else it would be insulting to star wars fans.
Compared to Battlefield, Battlefront is "nicer" and more aimed towards teens and younger audience. The different Multiplayer modes has to be easy to understand but at the same time harder to master.
Battlefront models and objects is scaled down to meet 60 fps on consoles, but the base is very high detailed so we have other tricks to get it as detailed as possible (assuming they talk about graphics)
DICE knows more about Force Awakens than the regular fan, but they haven't seen any screening from the movie.
Design Director Niklas Fergaeus has apparently seen the original movies 150 times each. (since his youth)
Photogrammtery is so detailed that small scratches can be seen on the models and objects.
