EA hiring for open world, next-gen Star Wars game

EA Canada is working on a new Star Wars game for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game, as reported on by Kotaku, is set to be an open world title.

A recent job listing by the company says, “EA Canada is looking for an experienced Animation director to help define and deliver on the vision for a major new next gen open world action game.”

In other listings, there are two positions for executive producers that possibly reveal a link between EA Canada in Vancouver and Visceral Games in Washington, a possible collaboration. It’s no secret that Visceral is working on a new Star Wars project after EA publicly announced it. EA’s deal gives them 10 years free reign over the franchise.
