Back in March, we informed you about a new triple-A open-world game that is being developed by EA Vancouver. And today, we have some new information about this Star Wars title. According to another job listing, this upcoming Star Wars game will feature a single-player narrative campaign.
As the description of the job listing reads:
“Work with the Creative Director, Game Director and Lead Writer to align all connected features with the single-player narrative and gameplay into a cohesive experience.”
Now while the job listing states that there will be a single-player mode, we don’t expect it to be as deep as the single-player mode of the Star Wars game that Visceral was working on. Perhaps EA will try to create a single-player experience similar to Destiny 2?
As said, this Star Wars game is most likely the re-imagination of Visceral’s cancelled Star Wars game. Back in October 2017 when EA shut down Visceral Games, the publisher stated that it will shift the game to be a broader experience with the aim of allowing for more variety and player agency. The game will still be using the Frostbite Engine and its development team will re-imagine central elements of the game to give players a Star Wars adventure of greater depth and breadth to explore.
EA Play is around the corner so there is a probability that the publisher will release a teaser trailer during that event (though nothing is set in stone as of yet).
Stay tuned for more!
