Latest title based in iconic film franchise could be in development at Visceral Games and Vancouver studio
EA could be working on a new open world Star Wars game, according to reports and a cached job ad.
Internet sleuth Superannuation spotted recent job ads promoting the roles of lead combat designer and animation director which could be for a title based on the hugely popular franchise the publisher recently snapped up gaming rights to.
The listing details a "major new next-gen action game" being developed in Vancouver. Former EA recruiter Zeba Manki also tweeted at the time the lead combat designer role was indeed for a Star Wars Project.
The title is tipped to also be in development at Visceral Games - thought to already be working on a Star Wars title - with the animation role asking for "experience with multi-site development".
EA has already previously revealed that Battlefield developer DICE is currently working on a new Battlefront game, while Bioware was also previously said to be making a title based on the film franchise.
