Is a new open-world Star Wars game coming from EA?

star-wars-battlefrontFollowing the announcement made at E3 earlier this year that Battlefield developer DICE and publisher EA are working on a new Star Wars: Battlefront game, Star Wars fans had hope that the franchise was a live again. Well a new job listing posted by EA has hinted that this may not be the only Start Wars game they are working on.

The company recently advertised for a Lead Combat Designer and Animation Director for a game that games journalists believe may be a new open world Star Wars game. The Job postings at EA Canada is thought to be for either EA’s Visceral and Bioware studios.

Although the adverts  didn’t state the project the position will be for, UK games website CVG has found a cached version of the Animation Director listing which instead reads “Animation Director – STAR WARS”.

As well as this, a recruitment officer working for EA at the time the ad was originally posted in September linked to the listing on Twitter, adding: “Best job title EVER! Lead Combat Designer for Star Wars.”

Now all references to the Star Wars title have been removed from the listing – a reference to open-world gameplay has also been taken out.

We will have to wait to see if EA make an official announcement soon of if this might come of E3 2014.
