EA Canada developing open-world Star Wars game

The internet is abuzz with the news claiming that several job postings for one of the oldest studios around, EA Canada (which was founded in 1983, just for a random, useless Thursday fact), have revealed the development of an open-world Star Wars title.

A former recruiter for EA has tweeted for a Lead Combat Designer, specifically for Star Wars, while a job posting from October for a studio in British Columbia — EA Canada — is open for an animation director, again for a Star Wars title. Another role for an executive producer went live a fortnight ago as well.

For what it’s worth, EA are still advertising positions for Firemonkeys down in Melbourne as well, with the most recent posting a week ago looking for any technical directors to join the mobile developer. But you probably won’t make any Star Wars games there.

Either way, it looks like more hardcore Star Wars games are in the offing. Not that the cutesy LEGO ones aren’t fun, of course. But they’re no Battlefront, now are they?

Hmm…another EA game? yuk. I still cant get a decent game out of BF4.

 

I’m all for more Star Wars, looks like EA Canada have mostly done sports games in the past, so hopefully they can get the right people on board to make what would appear to be a dramatically different style of game to their norm.

 
 

Please be good, please…

 

makena,

Well I wont totally mind if this new Star Wars game has an Ice Hockey manager part to it. Or there are storm troopers playing Ice Hockey!! With Vader as the Goalie at one end and say the Emperor at the other! That’d be RAD!
