If only a Star Wars version of Carmageddon, filled with Jar Jar Binks, existed.

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?
