Kotaku has spotted an EA job listing, according to which EA Canada is currently working on an open-world Star Wars title. And in case you’re wondering then no; this isn’t a prank. This new Star Wars game will be coming on next-gen platforms and will most probably be powered by Frostbite 3. After all, this is the engine that will power most of EA’s latest titles.
As of right now, we know that DICE and Visceral Games are working on two Star Wars games for EA. Do note, however, that the Star Wars title from Visceral Games may be the same one that EA Canada is working on.
As Kotaku explained:
“The EA Canada Star Wars game may be the same as the one in production at Visceral Games. The copy on the animation director posting says EA Canada wants someone who has experience with “multi-site development.” And another EA Canada Star Wars opening—for an executive producer—is a near-exact copy of another Star Wars executive producer posting at Redwood Shores, save for a few words about the studio’s location.”
Naturally, if this new Star Wars title is powered by Frostbite 3, it will then definitely support AMD’s Mantle API.
So there you have it Star Wars fans – more Star Wars games are on their way. Question now is whether the force will be strong with them or whether they will join the dark side and share the fate of their predecessors.
