Speaking of Star Wars games (as we do around here), EA seems to be working on a new Star Wars game. Their job post gives us a few details, although you can expect they're going to be as hushed about it as possible until they're ready to release official information. From the sounds of it, it's an open world Star Wars online game. Sounds good, right?

EA is working on the brand new Open World Star Wars Online AAA game, according to a new Job Opportunity they are offering currently. The studio is looking for a Lead Online Engineer to join the development team.

The position demands good leadership and 10+ years of experience with game development among other things. The new employee will lead a team of Engineers to accomplish the goals for the product as well as be an effective people manager to grow the talent on the team. He or she will report to the project Technical Director and ensure that the Online systems are meeting the robustness and performance requirements.

We are looking for a talented and experienced Lead Online Engineer to join an established, experienced team of developers working on a AAA Star Wars title in development at EA Vancouver. This is an opportunity to join a veteran team to design, architect, and implement the Online infrastructure for the project, while working with industry-leading central technologies.

You can read the full job description and apply for it here.

What do you think this means for the fans? It's been a rocky road for many Star Wars games and just last year, we saw the end of Visceral and the project they were working on. Is it too soon to start getting excited about a potential new game? Could a new game mean the death of the old one?
