EA hiring for unnamed Star Wars game

Andy

Star Wars gaming licence holders EA have begun recruiting for an as yet unnamed Star Wars project.

The games giant is currently looking for two Executive Producers and a Senior Environment Artist based in California and British Columbia. Both of these locations are home to EA subsidiary developer Visceral, most well known for their Dead Space series of video games.

The advertised job titles seem to suggest that this is a project in its very early stages, but it could always be possible that they are picking up development from a previous title or making a sequel to a preexisting Star Wars games series.

All clues seen thus far are that this will be a 'HD console title', so it is likely that this will be heading to Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

    • Lucasfilm to develop Star Wars games in-house?

      Job vacancies have appeared on the Disney Careers website that appear to indicate a return to in-house development of Star Wars games. The new positions at Lucasfilm Games include high level develop roles such as Producers and Art Directors for work on new console projects.
      Developer EA Games has held exclusive development rights for Star Wars properties on most consoles since Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012; this included LucasArts, which they promptly shuttered. While LucasArts released many Star Wars games over the years, EA has only managed to release two AAA titles: Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefront 2, both of which have had a mixed reception.
      Jedi: Fallen Order is currently still in development by EA subsidiary Respawn Entertainment, but little is known about the game at this time, although new details are expected at Celebration next month. So far more Star Wars projects have been cancelled than released, including a game by Dead Space developer Visceral, and Star Wars 1313 which was in development by LucasArts at the time it was closed.
      This may indicate that Disney does not intend to renew EA's exclusive hold of the Star Wars licence. Could we see a return to the glory days of Star Wars gaming?

    • Jedi: Fallen Order to be shown at Celebration

      Some long-awaited information about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be revealed at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago this April.
      New details, and gameplay footage are expected to be shown during a panel at the fan convention. Jedi: Fallen Order is developed by Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Apex Legends, and will be the first major single-player game focused on lightsaber combat and Force powers since 2010's The Force Unleashed II.
      All that we know so far is that the game will put players in the shoes of a Jedi padawan who survived Order 66, although it has not been specified how long after the fall of the Jedi Order the game takes place. 
      Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set for release in Fall 2019.
    • Jedi: Fallen Order to release this autumn

      EA have revealed during their recent financial statement that Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars video game, Jedi: Fallen Order, will release in autumn 2019.
      Despite being highly anticipated by fans there is little information available about Jedi: Fallen Order, and no screenshots or footage has been revealed. The game is set in the period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and is said to follow a Jedi being hunted down by agents of the Galactic Empire.
      Respawn's founder Vince Zampella has said that the game will be a single player action adventure game, that will (unsurprisingly) feature lightsaber combat. Development of the game is being lead by Stig Asmussen who was previously the creative lead on God of War III. In a 2016 blog post, Asmussen stated that Respawn "promise to pay respect to the Star Wars legacy at all times, a fact that will be constantly reinforced and honored as a central game design tenet."
      We impatiently await further details.
