Exciting news for everyone Starwars Fans have leaked, publisher giant Electronic Arts is planning a new MMO in the Jedi universe.
As the colleagues from Gameinformer report, there is an internal job advertisement at EA in which a lead online engineer for a new project is sought. Its task area is defined as follows:
"Lead a team to deliver online features for a Star Wars open-world project."
One of the main goals is: "Ensure that the design decisions lead to consistently high visitor / customer numbers for the multi-system game" ("ensure designs will maintain high-traffic services for multi-platform games,").
So it will most likely not be a PS4 or Xbox exclusive game, but the multi-platform structure suggests something MMO-mediocre.
EA Vancouver as a development studio
Of course, such job advertisements are not uncommon in the industry and often enough the project doesn't come to anything. In this case it matches EA's resolution of Visceral Games last October. The studio was developing a single player Star Wars game, which Electronic Arts has now integrated into the EA Vancouver Studio was moved.
An online multiplayer game fits in well with the agenda, especially since the Star Warriors brand with the new ones Disney movies is on everyone's lips at the moment.
Game developers in Canada with the necessary experience can apply for a cool position. And maybe in 2-3 years a new gaming pearl awaits us like it was back then Star Wars: Galaxy, which many fans still mourn.
