EA Canada working on “Open World” Star Wars?
Hello fellow Battlefrontians! Some interesting news has circulated courtesy of Joystiq.com. Accourding to them, some recent job listing that were posted by EA may indicate that an open-world Star Wars game is in development.
I am so praying that it is Knights of the Old Republic 3! Imagine and open world or open galaxy Knights of the Old Republic, that would be absolutely incredible!
The concept of an open-world Star Wars game isn’t new, as Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios nearly signed with LucasArts to develop one sometime between 2005 and 2009. Likewise, LucasArts’ Star Wars 1313 was reportedly being developed as an open-world game before Disney closed the developer and halted the game’s development in April.
EA obtained the exclusive rights to develop and publish Star Wars games in May, later announcing a new DICE-developed Star Wars: Battlefront game at E3, expected to arrive in mid-2015. The publisher also recently claimed that it will not pursue any games based on the new movies in the series.
Any thoughts on what this could be? Or your thoughts on what you want it to be? We all know what I am wishing for 🙂
